There is now a Provincial plan for the phased re-opening of church buildings. Weekly services should be able to start from Sunday 2nd August subject to risk assessments being completed by the church committees in the coming weeks. Services will be different to usual, lasting for about half an hour and with no singing. Social distancing and hygiene measures will be in place for everyone’s safety, and we will have to keep a register of everyone who attends. Full guidelines will be issued before the first service so that everyone knows what to expect and what is expected of them. While some of you will be eager to return to corporate worship services, others will be more apprehensive, so please return when you feel ready to do so. Online services and the bi-weekly newsletters will continue until for as long as they are needed. It is hoped that other activities will begin to be phased in from September onwards.
