We have a service in Holy Trinity on a Sunday at 10.30am.
We look forward to welcoming you and ask that, for your own and other's safety, you do the following:
The government require face coverings to be worn in places of worship, however there is an exemption for those who are leading services, and those who preaching, read or leading prayers to enable communication, particularly with those who rely on lip-reading, facial expressions or clear sound. Please remember that face covering are mainly intended to protect other people, not the wearer, from coronavirus COVID-19 and that they are not a replacement for physical distancing and regular hand washing.
Please arrive 20 minutes early to allow for our welcoming procedure; we will need to take note of your contact details and also ask you to use sanitiser prior to sitting.
We need to limit numbers to our capacity with social distancing and this will be done on a first come first served basis.
You will be asked to queue outside the porch and we ask that you to use the markers to help you social distance - please do let us know if standing for a period of time is a struggle for you.
We would encourage you to bring your own bible to church.
As you are directed to the next available pew we ask that you group yourselves by households or support bubbles.
We will fill up from the front and ask you to go to the first empty pew nearest to the front.
Please do not stop to chat to people on your way.
We are not currently allowed to offer refreshments.
Sunday Rocks (4-10years old) will take place at Church Gate House and Engage (10+years) will take place at Jubilee Hall.
Please drop your children off here prior to the service starting (10.20-10.30am) and you can pick them up after.
If you are bringing children / young people to groups on Sunday kindly print and complete a
new consent form for each child.
