CHURCH RE-OPENING SUNDAY 6TH SEPTEMBER
It is a long time since we have all been together as church family and have very much missed worshiping together. We feel now is the right time to start to meet together even though it won’t be quite the same and there are still restrictions. Please bear with us as we navigate our way through it all but we very much hope you will join with us as we worship God and speak encouragement over one another.
We start meeting again at the Old Cattle Market on Sunday 6th September. It is therefore very important to let us know by the Friday of each week if you wish to attend.
It will be a much simpler set up and shorter service lasting an hour. The partition between the two halls won’t be up to allow for greater distancing so the children will be in with us.
The Old Cattle Market has put strict cleaning procedures in place with a full clean being done once a day and between hire periods there will be touch-point cleaning to include door handles, light switches, toilets etc. We ourselves will be sanitising all our equipment.
So please book your place by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or 07468527655 We would ask that you don’t just turn up as we do need to know how many to expect.
· Entrance into the hall is by the usual door and we will ask you to register – there will be hand sanitiser on the table.
· As you move around the hall please be mindful of the distancing we are required to keep
· There will be no refreshments at the present time so please bring a drink with you.
· The toilets are open
· At present we are required to wear face coverings, except for those leading or sharing at the front – please pray for this restriction to be lifted!
· We are not allowed to sing as a congregation but we can be led by live worship now
Lastly and most importantly, we want to underline the importance of our calling as Christians, primarily to worship and love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul and might (Deut 6 v5). Jesus himself reminded Satan that the Word of God says “You should worship the Lord your God and Him only shall you serve” (Luke 4 v8).
This time of lockdown has brought many challenges and certain to have robbed us of the spiritual significance of worshiping together. Whilst we can’t yet sing, let us not allow the enemy to steal and dull our desire to seek after God with our whole heart, soul and might.
