In addition, each week we are provided with a worship sheet from District which you can find on the ‘Worship at Home’ page & which is also available to download from the link on the Weekly Notices page.

This is a time of real uncertainty for everyone and the Church will continue to be central to the life of our community

in bringing light and hope in any way we can.

As the end of summer nears, the Government has set out plans for tackling the COVID-19 virus during the autumn and winter periods.  At this stage, the Methodist Church does not see a need to change its overall guidance as outlined in July. Whilst always adhering to government advice, we are still urging some caution for the sake of others in the church, community and for self-care. We will continue with the positive changes that have been made during the pandemic & look to improve on these as a means of giving everyone within and outside the church continued access to worship, teaching and support during this period of transition and change. The emphasis is on ‘personal responsibility’ & making ‘informed’ local decisions.

ü  Please do not come to church if you feel unwell or suspect you might have Covid 19.

ü  Face coverings are advised but not compulsory when in church. We ask that you wear your mask on entry until seated. Please use the hand sanitiser as you arrive & leave.

ü  You may enter & leave by the front door, but please be aware of others to avoid congestion.

ü  The rows of seating are safely spaced. There are no social distancing rules, although the risks to those deemed vulnerable need to be considered.

ü  Please deter from shaking hands and hugging others. The virus is still very active and everyone needs to take care.

ü  Communal singing is possible once more, though wearing of a covering whilst singing is advised.

ü  The services will still be live streamed, so if you are still nervous about coming to church, or simply can’t manage for 10:30, it will be available on-line.

Many thanks for your cooperation.
