Services in January and February

 

Given the current lockdown situation we have decided not to have any services in our buildings for the time being.

We will continue to produce a weekly service sheet for people to follow at home, with the option of meeting on Zoom.

 

This decision is in line with the following advice from the Baptist Union:  

 

In light of the Government’s announcement on 4 January regarding the national lockdown in England, we strongly encourage churches not to open their buildings for in-person meeting if at all possible.

We recognise that the Government guidelines allow churches to remain open in England during this period; however, given the significant increase in numbers of Covid-19 infections and pressure on the NHS, we advise churches to stand with the wider community in making every effort to limit the spread of the virus.

We would still support churches to open their buildings, as you have done throughout the pandemic, to provide vital services to the local community, such as food banks.
