updated 3rd July
Dear church family,
As you may be aware, the government released advice and guidance this week to enable places of worship to begin opening as from 4th July, in a COVID-19 secure manner. The advice covers a number of important aspects on what is allowed, and what isn’t allowed in order to keep people safe, (as every church building is different so plans for each church will need to be unique).
We are mindful we would only want meetings to begin to partially resume when we have safe routines and procedures in place, and preparation’s in the church layout are ready. There are a number of practices and procedures that need to be followed, and a lot to organise before we can even think about reopening (for example, how we distance ourselves while on the premises, how our services will be conducted, arriving and leaving church to name just a few). Obviously this will take a little time to work through, as we have to get it right and open in a way that is responsible and in a way that is safe.
