As a Leadership Team we have discussed how we should respond to the recent easing of government restrictions. We want to encourage as many as possible to attend the Family Service but are also aware of high infection rates and the vulnerability of some of those who attend.
We plan to: • Continue using sanitizer when entering the building • Continue spacing out the rows of chairs • Continue to allow air flow by opening windows. • Continue to encourage those attending to book in advance in order to keep records for Track and Trace, although there is no longer a limit on numbers.
We encourage those who attend to wear a face covering (unless exempt) while moving around but these may be removed for the second half of the service, while seated. We are very happy to say that we can all now sing but encourage you to wear your face covering while doing so. We encourage those who feel more vulnerable, or who wish to remain more distanced, to sit on the carpeted area to ensure that no one is singing behind them. We will review these arrangements in a few weeks and adjust as required but we look forward to singing together on Sunday.
We are planning time to meet together, inside and out.
Saturday 10.30 am – worship and teaching service with Nigel White.
Saturday 12:15 – picnic and fellowship (including singing together) followed by a walk. Bring your own picnic and garden chairs. We plan to meet at the university.
Sunday 11 am – worship and teaching service with Nigel White.
Sunday 12:15 – join us for a light lunch (which will be provided) in the church building.
All current Covid guidelines will be followed.
Both services will be live streamed for those unable to attend in person.
Please book your place for any of these sessions, either by clicking “Read more” for the form, or by contacting Karen Curran. Booking is now closed for Saturday and Sunday lunch. Use the normal booking form for the Sunday service.
Good news for parents/carers of toddlers in the Canley area! Mucky Ducks will be back from 28 April! Due to COVID, there will be a few changes to how it was run before but we look forward to welcoming you back!
Mucky Ducks will now be from 9:15am to 10:30am and you will need to book in. We will not be able to provide refreshments, please provide a drink for your own child. We will be following Government guidance to operate social distancing and all adults should be wearing masks (unless exempt) and we will be closing at 10:30am instead of 11:00am.
Claire and Karen dropped off 150 Chocolate Easter eggs and copies of the Bible Society’s “All about Easter” booklet that we’re using for our Easter service this year to Canley Food Hub as a blessing to those in our local area who are in need. Let’s pray for them to be received and read as well as eaten! Click to see a larger version of the photo.
As lockdown restrictions ease in England and the “stay at home” order is lifted, we are able to welcome you to celebrate Easter with us in the church building on Sunday 4th April at 11am (or at home on the livestream as we have been doing for the past few months too!)
As social distancing regulations are unchanged, you will need to book your place in the service and follow the other legal requirements.
As well as the Easter worship service, join us from Monday to Thursday for daily Bible readings both on Facebook and here on our website and a zoom communion service at 10:30 on Good Friday
