Due to recent changes in govt advice, we can announce that we are able to open our building for individual prayer space.
We will be opening the building on Friday’s 10am-12 noon starting this coming Friday 26th June and you can come at anytime during those opening hours.
This is a time we can come to a common place to pray and reflect with God and we hope it will be an encouraging space for us all.
We do need to stress that this is not a time to gather for services or socials and is not a time of led prayer.
The space has been stripped back to help us more easily keep in line with hygiene standards and there will be social distancing in place throughout. We will have two team members to help host the space to ensure everyone is kept safe.
If you are shielding please remain doing so until you are advised otherwise. We know this is a tough time and even more so knowing there is this space opening.
Please be assured though that prayer is powerful whether prayed in a church building or in our homes and God loves to meet us wherever we are placed.
We do pray that you will know the deep presence of God in this time and just how loved you are.
In all other things, previous advice, requirements and guidance from the govt and our Archbishops are still in effect and so the following groups are (still) suspended:
• Monday morning prayer
• Little Angels
• Thursday 11am Service
• Chit-Chat Club
• Worship Group
• Friday Market
• Sunday Gatherings:
(We will not be gathering in the church building, but we will commit to worship in our homes at 10am. For those of you who are local, you will hear the church bell ring to signify the start of the worship and to let the community know they are in our prayers.)
The uniformed organisations have suspended activities as have many of our external groups. Please check with the individual organisations if in doubt.
We endorse all public health advice concerning :
· hand washing – for a minimum of 20 seconds using soap & water
· the use of tissues – Catch It, Bin It, Kill It
· self-isolating if feeling unwell – anybody with any symptoms (new continuous cough and/or high temperature) no matter how mild - should stay at home for 7 days.
