Yesterday, 21st May, the Methodist Church updated some of its guidance on the reopening of church buildings. It was in response to the government's Covid-19 recovery strategy. The two over-riding principles are to save lives and to communicate and co-operate. It said, "The implementation of any local strategy will be based upon good communication between all parties and working together in partnership. This second principle will support the best outcomes for the first principle."

The previous evening, May 20th our Leadership Team, with several seconded members, had a virtual meeting on Zoom to start to consider the various aspects of reopening that we at AMC would need to consider. This focused on the safe reopening for worship and for using the rest of the building.

Thinking and outline planning has started. pending more explicit guidance from the government and the Methodist Church. In the meantime, anyone with any ideas or questions should email our minister Richard at revrja@outlook.com.
