Meeting together FAQs

What should I do when I arrive?
When you arrive at the church building, there will be stewards waiting outside the building.  You will need to let them know that you have arrived.  Please stay with the other members of your household and go straight to your seats and sit down.

Seating will not be pre-allocated – please make the most of the space available. If you are attending the 4pm service please only sit a row labelled 1 and leave at least 2 seats between households.

You will need to sanitise your hands as you come in; sanitising stations will be available. 

Do I need to wear a face covering?
We are asking everyone over the age of 11 attending or taking part in the service to wear a face covering whilist moving round the the building and whilst singing, unless they are medically exempt.

Can I bring my children to church?
Parents are very welcome to bring their children to services (booking them seats when you book or booking them inot a children’s group), but children will need to remain with their parents at all times other than when in children’s groups.

What else will be in place to keep us all safe?
Doors will be fixed open so no-one need touch door handles.    Windows will be open to maximise ventilation so if you feel the cold please come prepared!  Toilets will be available, and will be carefully cleaned between services, but we ask people to plan ahead so as to be able to use them as sparingly as possible!

Can I talk to other people who are at the same service as me?
Please sit down as soon as you come in; you are welcome to chat to others you come with or around you.  At the end of the service we will disperse people gradually from the building and you will be free to mingle and chat outside.

Anything else I need to know?
The service will be streamed so you should be aware that the back of your head may appear on the stream; if you are concerned about this please sit behind the pillars and you will be out of the line of the camera.
