As the government has recently brought in "Plan B" to manage covid, face coverings are now mandatory in places of worship. So from 12 December we are reminding congregation that all people over 12 years old should wear a face covering when attending Sunday service in-person, unless exempt. There is no requirement for young people to wear face coverings for the youth group on Sunday evening. Once in groups young people and leaders DO NOT have to wear face coverings.
The ruling does permit face coverings to be removed for singing and when consuming refreshments. Anyone who is involved in the service i.e. readings, acting, prayers, etc., does not need to wear a face covering whilst they are at the front.
Please note that if you have symptoms of covid or are being asked to isolate then please do not attend the service in-person but watch our live streaming online.

May we encourage everyone to turn to the Lord, to find in Him ‘our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble’. (Psalm 46, verse 1)
