COVID-19 current situation

June 2022:

  • Our church is open for public worship on Sunday mornings
    • In line with Government advice and guidance, those attending worship are no longer required by law to wear face-masks.
      • We recognise that, in the current circumstances, some members feel more comfortable wearing a mask and sitting with others who are also doing so, while others prefer to worship without wearing a face-covering. In view of this, we are suggesting that those who wish to wear a face-covering to sit on the “organ” side of the church and that those who do not wish to wear a mask sit on the “font” side of the church.
      • We are also asking all those attending to respect the personal choice of others and to be sensitive towards those who are cautious with regard to social distancing.
    • We will be serving tea/coffee in the Fellowship Room after worship from Sunday 27th February.
      • Members are invited to consider whether they feel able to join us for coffee. All are welcome.
      • For the time-being, the external doors will be open to provide adequate ventilation.
  • We live stream our Sunday morning services on our YouTube channel and links and videos may be found on our Recordings of Worship page.
  • Wednesday Afternoon Tea (a time to chat for an hour or so over a cup of tea or coffee from about 3.15 pm) is available for members and the link is circulated each week to all on our members mailing list.
  • Our halls are open for meetings but we are keeping their use under review.
  • We will endeavour to keep this website updated as guidance changes. Do visit frequently to check for updates, and also check our Facebook page. We would be glad to receive feedback that you think may be helpful.
  • Latest URC advice is HERE.
  • For further information, follow the link below to read our Covid-19 page, which includes advice from the URC nationally and links to Government and Local Government advice.

Covid-19 (last updated on 24th February 2022)

We wish to continue offering pastoral support to all members of the congregation. Any member of the congregation may contact their Elder if they, or someone they know, may need help in connection with a pastoral need or a practical need – we are here to support each other and do what we can for our communities. Any member of the Secretarial Team may be contacted if your Pastoral Elder is not available.

DO LET US KNOW IF YOU NEED ANY HELP.

We continue to pray for those who are having health difficulties or who have responsibility for taking decisions in relation to this difficult situation.
