If you were wondering what our church looks like for our recently resumed 10.30am Sunday worship, Bob Bucknell's pictures tell the story.
To ensure everyone's safety, we are following government and Methodist Church guidelines. So the chairs are placed two meters apart, face masks are worn and hand sanitisers are available. We have the organ or music group and a soloist or singers to sing the hymns. We can follow the words projected on the front walls and are allowed to hum, dance, clap but not sing. We are also exploring other music options within the guidance.
If you would like to venture back, you will be very welcome. Simply let Richard know by the preceding Wednesday that you intend to come on the Sunday. With that advance notice, we can also organise the seating for family members to sit together up to a maximum of six per group. You can also make a block booking for all Sundays, just letting Richard know when you can't come.
Richard's contact details again are telephone 01296 339899 or email
