Guidelines for 15 October onwards

We are committed to continually review these guidelines as the UK returns, albeit slowly, to the new ‘norm’.

SINGING: This is allowed but for the protection of those around you we ask you to wear a face covering when singing

FACE COVERINGS: Although no longer required by law, we recommend you wear a face covering as much as possible whilst within the building

SEATING: We are placing more chairs into the sanctuary however if you wish to keep social distanced from others, there are cards at the entrance to place on the chairs either side of you to ensure they remain free.

FELLOWSHIP: We are now serving tea and coffee indoors and ask that, upon collection, you return to the sanctuary where there is more space to drink and have fellowship.

CLEANING schedules have been amended in line with Government guidance and there continues to be increased hand sanitiser around the building

VENTILATION: whilst in the building doors and windows will be opened to create the recommended airflow. As the temperature drops, it will become more difficult to heat the building and recommend you dress warmly whilst ventilation remains critical to the fight against the spread of the virus.

SMALL GROUPS: have restarted in homes or at the church whilst following the good practices required to help prevent the spread of the virus

LIVESTREAMING: we continue to livestream the services and will endeavour to not film children unless pre-agreed.
Please be aware that:
1. If you sit on the front 2 rows, you may be caught on camera.
2. If your child appears unexpectedly on the stage or within the front 2 rows, they may be caught on camera.
We would ask that if you do not want your child to appear on camera, you prevent this from happening.

Please continue to be mindful of the needs of others and keep in mind the good practices required to help prevent the spread of the virus.
If you are unwell with any coronavirus symptoms, please stay home.

We promise to continue to do all we can to keep you safe and we encourage sensitivity to one another’s needs.

Good morning. This Sunday we enter the season of Advent. The word advent means coming, and of course refers to the coming of Jesus. Just as light dawned on the day of creation, so the Light of the World has dawned on the darkness of our sin and suffering. There is a richness to this season. Some churches are decorated in purple because that is the colour for a King. There’s a richness to the Christmas story with all its wonderful characters and scenes. And there are deep connections with the rest of the Bible story. Someone once said that Christmas is really for children, but let’s turn that round. To appreciate this season fully we must become like children, ready to be filled with awe and wonder as the magnitude of what this story means dawns on us afresh. ... See MoreSee Less

Good morning, and Happy Thanksgiving to all our American friends. In 1863 President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national day of "Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens". He called on the nation "with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience... to fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty hand to heal the wounds of the nation...". Lincoln didn’t mince his words! They remind me of the old hymn based on Psalm 23: “Perverse and foolish oft I strayed, and yet in love He sought me”. Today then, let’s give thanks together with grateful hearts for God’s goodness in our lives and to our own nation, for His patience with our perverseness, and for His desire to lead us on to better things. ...

Good morning. Oh my goodness – only a month to Christmas Eve! For children the excitement builds from this point on, whereas for many adults it’s often something nearer to anxiety or even panic. If the Christmas adverts are anything to go by, the expectations are even higher this year because we’ve got to make up for last year’s disappointments and make this year a doubly good time. Hang on there a minute! How about starting with a cool head and making some decisions? How about deciding not to try to make this Christmas “the best ever” with all the stress that puts us under? How about approaching this season with realistic expectations, keeping open communication with the God who cares for us so much that He came to earth to rescue us? ... See MoreSee Less
