Time to re-open for worship

There is a lot of preparation taking place in the background to get us there, and we are are aiming to re-open the church at this stage for worship on the second Sunday in September i.e. — 13 September.

Things will be quite different as we get used to the 'new normal'.
Doors will open at 10.00am with the service starting at 10.30am — a video Zoom service

Sadly we Methodist are not permitted to sing — humming is probably alright.

If you wish to follow the songs and readings please bring a hymn book and bible.

We can't easily serve refreshment at this stage, so feel free to bring your own.

Monetary offerings may be placed on the offering tray, though we'd prefer you to use contactless, or better still set up a standing order, or bank transfer

Social distancing of 2 metres remains in place throughout the premises, and hand sanitizer stations are in place in the main entrance /church and hall which must be used on entrance and exit.

We have 'fixed' and pre-positioned chairs to achieve the correct social distancing requirements, and we believe that the most we can hold in the church will be between 18 and 22 (dependent on household status), and up to 12 in the hall — get early for one of the limited seats, or you'll have to stand outside!

If you feel unwell, or uncomfortable with attending church at this time, then do please stay at home.

Upon arrival we must complete a 'Test and Trace' form which we will keep for 21 days.

This is the situation as it stands now, but as we all know, this could be subject to change — we look forward to meeting and greeting you again, or for the first time at Glazebury Methodist Church.
