Coronavirus: Covid-19 advice

13 March 2020

Covid-19 advice

Clean hands, open hearts

We aim to support and care, as a community of people in Christ – keeping one another safe. As this situations develops we are carefully / regularly monitoring advice and the actions we are taking in church.

We seek to offer welcome in a sensitive way and we recognise that meeting together in a safe way is beneficial. We are disinfecting handles and toilets in church before and after meetings.

We are also considering how we can offer the best pastoral care and practical support to all at this time – we see this as an important opportunity.

In regard to this coming Sunday we’re sorry to say that our church breakfast is cancelled although the Music Room will be open between 9.30am and 10.15 for prayer. Communion and the Church Meeting will take place as announced.

Momentum is on this Sunday evening and Beacon Café, Oasis, Moortots and Lunch Club in the coming week. Home Groups should consider this advice as they plan meetings.

The leaders and teams will continue to receive guidance and support from the church.

Our advice for individuals is as follows:

If you have a high temperature or a continuous cough you should not come along to meetings and you should self-isolate for 7 days.

If you are anxious about coming to a meeting or have underlying health issues that make you vulnerable it may be wise to stay at home.

If you are staying away and/or are unwell please let someone in church know so we have stay connected with you and offer support.

 You should:

  • carry tissues, use them for coughs/sneezes, and bin them.
  • wash hands with soap and hot water  (for 20 seconds) or use sanitiser gel.
  • avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Clean/disinfect frequently touched objects/surfaces.
  • Avoid shaking hands or sharing hugs.
  • Seek to maintain a 1 metre (arms length) personal space from others.
