During this outbreak of coronavirus (Covid 19) we shall be keeping you up to date with the way we can help one another, share information and offer prayers. This is an uncertain time for many of us but we do have a faith in Jesus who is steadfast and certain so we offer up prayers for all our concerns as well as practical details of how we are organising ourselves.
The newest information will appear here and then be kept on this page for you to access.
We have now resumed our Sunday morning services. In order that our more vulnerable members feel safe to attend, we continue to be cautious. Services will last slightly less than one hour and when outside temperatures allow, the building will be well ventilated.
If you have symptoms or have recently tested positive for COVID-19 please do not come to church. Instead please do make use of the Weekly Act of Worship at Home posted on this website.
If you are feeling unwell, displaying the symptoms of a cold, are elderly or worried you may be vulnerable, please consider not coming. Even if you would normally come with a cold, the words of 1 Corinthians 8:11 may help us all: “Think of your weaker brother/sister”.
Please do not sit next to anyone who is not in your household, leaving at least one empty seat on either side. We ask that everyone who is able to wear a mask or face covering does so whilst in the building. You will be invited to sanitise your hands on arrival, and ask that you maintain at least a one metre distance from anyone who is not in your household.
A prayer from Rev Dr John Proctor General Secretary of the United Reformed Church:
In the midst of a storm,
You said, ‘Peace be still.’
Bid our anxious fears subside,
Sustain your church in faith, hope and love,
Bring our nation through this tumult,
Grant wisdom to those with heavy responsibilities,
And healing and hope to those who are infected. Amen.
