C-19 Update Page

Christ Church is open for Public Worship.

Updated 26 August 2021: Christ Church has decided to gradually lift COVID protection measures  in order to continue to protect vulnerable members.

We are therefore requesting that in church during services:-

  • We are following a “café-style” rule on masks, asking for masks to be worn until people have sat down in church, after which they may be removed, putting them back on to leave.
  • We are still encouraging one empty chair between bubbles.
  • For the coming weeks, to allow for those who wish to continue to wear masks, we will have a “Mask wearing” side on the left half of church and a “Non-mask-wearing” side on the right. Until we try it, we have no idea who is happy to remove their mask and who isn’t. We want to accommodate everyone in a manner in which everyone feels safe.
  • Singing – if you wish to sing, please do so gently.
  • We will have hand sanitisers at both doors.
  • We are continuing to live stream services. Please make it known to a welcomer if you do not want to be on the live stream, and they will find you an appropriate place to sit.

Our policy is under continuous review. We want all our congregation to feel safe. Please let us know if you have any concerns or suggestions. Thank you for your understanding.

Prayer

  • Loving God,
    source of healing and comfort,
    fill us with your grace,
    that the sick may be made whole,
    that those who care for us may be strengthened,
    that the anxious may be calmed,
    and those most vulnerable be protected
    in the power of Spirit
    in the faith of Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.
