Christ Church Services and the Lifting of Covid Restrictions
Due to the government’s lifting of restrictions on 19th July, the way we are holding services at Christ Church is changing. We want to be able to reflect the relaxation of rules, but want to keep you safe too. Whilst our measures below are not mandatory in law, we are keeping some in place to protect each other.
Here’s what you need to know:
As from Sunday 25th July 2021,
There will be two Sunday services, 9am and 11am.
Booking seats is no longer necessary. However, for the first few weeks we would encourage you to continue to use our booking system to give us an idea of numbers.
Face coverings will be required upon entering the building but may be removed whilst seated.
Sanitizing of hands will still be necessary upon entering the building.
Entry to the building will still be via the front door, although there will no longer be a one-way system inside.
Singing during services will be allowed.
There won’t be any refreshments just yet.
There won’t be any children’s work just yet, but more information on this will be available soon.
Seating: There will be rows of seating of varying lengths, but also seats that are distanced from others. There will be the option to ‘reserve’ the seat next to you, using cards available, so as to keep that space free.
There will also be an area for those who feel it necessary to maintain the use of a mask at all times.
Ventilation – there will be plenty of airflow and the ventilation system will be on.
Chairs and touch points will be sanitized between services as usual.
The building will be open 20 minutes before each service.
Our Sunday online service will continue every Sunday at 10.30am on our YouTube channel.
