Meeting together in Covid times – Latest Guidance

From the 1st April 2022, the specific Government Guidance for Places of Worship in England has been withdrawn and replaced with the following guidance.

If you have symptoms of a respiratory infection, such as COVID-19, and you have a high temperature or do not feel well enough to go to work or carry out normal activities, try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people, until you no longer have a high temperature (if you had one) or until you no longer feel unwell.

It is particularly important to avoid close contact with anyone who you know is at higher risk of becoming seriously unwell if they are infected with COVID-19 and other respiratory infections, especially those whose immune system means that they are at higher risk of serious illness, despite vaccination.

In our Sunday services and mid-week meetings, we will arrange the seating so that those who wish to have more space can find it. We will ensure adequate ventilation to help mitigate the risk of Covid spreading. Some may wish to wear a face covering. We do provide hand sanitiser and would encourage its use.

We would urge people to be understanding and gracious towards one another where they have different opinions about what measures ought to continue to be in place and to seek to avoid division and disunity.
