We are so excited to be gathering again, in person, on Sunday mornings with our Church family. We would love you to join us so please book a ticket for yourself, and any other people in your household who will be attending with you. Our Sunday evening and Thursday morning gatherings are also continuing where we worship, pray and break bread together.
Meetings will follow social distancing guidelines and will be Covid secure in line with current government guidance.
— Tickets must be booked in advance to ensure we limit attendance and can comply with track and trace requirements
— A queuing system for entering and leaving the building will be in place with the flow of movement around the building managed.
— Face coverings need to be worn throughout our time spent inside (unless you are exempt).
For more information about how our Sunday mornings at the Kings Centre and Hippodrome Theatre will be over the new few weeks you can watch this video we’ve put together:
Hand sanitizing stations are throughout the building, and individual portions of bread and juice will be given out on the door. Chairs are set out 2m apart and as a congregation we will not be allowed to sing or touch one another as part of these events (unless you are part of the same household).
Despite all of the challenges this season is presenting us with, we believe it is also changing us, as the people of God, to be the church that Jesus longs for us to be.
We understand that due to shielding or personal circumstances this will not be an option for many others to join larger physical gatherings at this time. You may want to take a bit more time and see how we do before you consider coming back into larger gatherings in our venues.
Church online is still here every week and will be vital in resourcing us as one going forward. Our many life groups are key to building and sustaining relationships, and providing discipleship and pastoral care. And our individual friendships with others across the Church are truly the life blood of all we do in growing as followers of Jesus.
We know that large gatherings in buildings are not more important than other daily things that we do as the Church but they are something that we believe cannot be replaced and have been sorely missed throughout the past year.
Please ensure that you book a ticket for each member of your household who will be attending.
Thanks once again for your ongoing love and prayers as we continue to love and lead you the Church.
