How to book your place when church services in the building resume.

Space is limited and we need to comply with Covid-19 regulations, so it will be necessary to ‘book your seat’ ahead of each service. This will allow us to make sure as many people as possible can attend worship whilst maintaining social distancing.

Seats can be booked by completing our booking form. It is a Word document you can type into and ‘save as’ on your computer – it would be great if you can use your name and the date of the service as the document name when you save it. Please email it to us by midnight on the Thursday evening immediately before the service.

We have a handy sheet which explains what measures are in place to keep everyone safe. If you are concerned about whether or not to return to worship at the present time you could consult this personal risk assessment as part of your decision making.

There are lots of opportunities for you to meet with us and other Christians in an online forum. Please head over to our Support during coronavirus page to find out more.
