Update from Church Meeting on 21st July 2021

On 21st July 2021 The Church Meeting discussed our current situation regarding the Corona virus situation:-

Whilst we understand that no one can be forced, the Church Meeting would like to ask everyone, for the time being,  to continue to comply with the procedure we have grown used to during lockdown. That is: masks are not mandatory, but please wear a mask in order to sing; distanced seating to remain; no Sunday school during the School holidays; no gathering in large groups; no coffee within the chapel, but we encourage people to host after-church coffee in their gardens where possible. 


Coronavirus and Our Response (April 2021 update)

Together with most other churches, we have been closed for ‘live’ services and events. In its place, we made full use of telephone, Zoom and other internet media. Now, assuming the Government’s roadmap to be achievable,  and following the guidance of our own denomination, our plan is to reopen on Pentecost – 23rd May.

This is exciting, yet many restrictions will still be in place. As yet, congregational singing indoors will not be allowed, and many other distance and hygiene regulations will remain. Some of these may well be relaxed in June, God willing.

When we open on 23rd May, our plan is to hold a ‘light’ service on as many Sundays as possible. At first, these will all be led ‘in-house’, with plans to include outside speakers when it is both safe and practicable; so please keep an eye on all the news posted.

Meanwhile, we will continue to post a weekly message from our minister, and a set of study notes for your use if you wish to consider the week’s message further. Other events will happen from time to time. Some may take place in gardens, or by Zoom, for various age groups. But be patient. Our overriding principle in all of this is to be safe and secure, extending God’s love to the community by putting our members and friends to as little risk as possible.

Pray that our plans come to fruition and that, whatever the next stage in this journey, we may still serve this area in the way we should.
