Working on our new normal...

 

We are opening our places of worship gradually, safely and in line with government advice.
There is a new timetable below for services from 9th September


Both churches will now be open for private prayer:
St Giles'          Sunday - Tuesday 10am -noon
St Andrew's       Wednesday - Friday 10am -noon

Service Calendar Sep 20
As 1 Corinthians 12:12 reminds us:
 
“Just as a body, though one, has many parts,
but all its many parts form one body,
so it is with Christ.”
 
We continue to share with you the time table for the few weeks ahead to help you pray, think and plan out which services suit your current needs so you can attend … either in person, or online.
 
Mid Week Communions have restarted in St Andrew’s Chapel on Wednesdays at 11am.  They will follow the style we have had online.
 
As the guidelines do not allow Natasha to move from one building straight to another on Sundays, the Family Service at St Andrew's will be at 4pm on Sundays for the time being. You can see the variations on the timetable.
 
Our priority for now, is to remain faithful to the one who saves, support one another in loving acts of service and kindness, and remember this is a season with God’s Grace, in which we will grow.
 
God Bless & Stay Safe
 

As a reminder, to ensure we are all kept safe the following guidelines still need to be followed:

  • Masks are required indoors by government guidelines from 8th August.

  • Hand sanitisers must be used as you enter.

  • No singing, chanting or shouting

  • Remain seated to reduce accidental contact

  • Service sheets to be taken home by worshippers

  • A one - way system to come in and out of the buildings has to be used 

  • Please follow the signs already in situ and take note of the Covid-19 guidance posters dotted around.

  • At St Giles’ the main front door is your only point of access. Arrangements have been made with the Memorial gardens for those who drive to park on the path and come through the pedestrian gate. 

  • At St Andrew’s the Main Door to the side of the hall is the only point of entry.

  • Gifts and Offerings are to be placed on the giving plate, which will be on the Font at St Giles, and the entrance table at St Andrew’s.

As stated before we will keep this under constant review so please keep an eye on our website and the Friday News.  If you know someone who needs to have a paper version delivered, so you are kept in the loop, then please contact Debbie in the office who will arrange this.
 
Please continue to pray for our PCC and all those in leadership.  We are planning and seeking God’s grace and guidance for our future as we continue in our mission to Love God & Love people.
 
Remain safe, and know that you are in our prayers …
