Service Gradually Returning
Close to Normal
We are really pleased to announce from Sunday 27th June we will be holding both the 9.00 AM and 10.30 AM services in the church
For the past month we have held the 9.00 AM service in the church and this has proved to be popular for church members who have prefer to attend church. And although singing is not permitted in the church, as the weather has been good we have also been leaving the church before the end of the service and conducting the final stages of the service outside when we have joined together in worship.
This has given us the confidence to open up the church for a 10.30 AM service in person, when we will follow similar covid guidelines.
This means seating will be arranged in order that social distancing between different group bubbles will be maintained, you will need to register and sanitise on entry, and wear a mask.
No singing will be allowed in church however the music group have been preparing for the anticipated return and they will be playing some worship hymns for us to listen to.
At the end of the service, just like the 9.00AM service we will leave before the end and join together in worship in the church garden (weather permitting).
Subject to guidelines and weather conditions we intend to serve refreshments outside after the service.
Many of our church members have said they miss coming to church and seeing their friends, catching up on news and most of all gathering together in worship. We hope that this decision to have the 10.30 AM service in the church instead of remotely on Zoom will encourage people to return on Sunday.
Mindful that some of our church members cannot get to either service in person, be it due to work or personal commitments, the 10.30 AM service will continue to be recorded and then uploaded on to the St Paul’s YouTube site for anyone to watch.
We look forward to seeing the church at Covid-safe capacity next week, there should be plenty of space so please rest assured there will be a socially distanced seat for you.
