How to book your place at our services 

Space is limited and we need to comply with Covid-19 regulations, so it is necessary to ‘book your seat’ ahead of each in-person 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.

We have a wide selection of resources for prayer and worship whilst the physical building is closed, explore those you wish to get involved in.  You may find one you want to use every week, or you may wish to join different services and communities each week.
