IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Update from December 2021

IMPORTANT CHANGES TO RESTRICTIONS FOR PUBLIC WORSHIP.

Walkden Methodist Church, Church Council met at the beginning of |December 2021. The item discussed was a review of the current restrictions on public worship in the continuing Covid-19 pandemic.

. Below are the arrangements that will be implemented for public worship going forward, namely:

  • The restriction on maximum numbers of attendees to public worship will be lifted, meaning that no bookings will be required to attend a public worship service.
  • There will be also no allocated seating, so those in attendance will be able to choose where they sit but are reminded to be respectful for those in attendance who may wish to maintain a social distance from those they do not normally have contact with
  • Social distancing is still recommended and encouraged to be practiced within the building
  • Face coverings will be recommended to be always worn during a public worship service
  • Singing will continue whilst wearing face coverings but we will stand whilst singing for those who are able
  • The one way system in and out of the building will remain. Entry to the service will be through the main front entrance doors with everyone exiting after the service via the one-way system through the bridge suite. After the service everyone remains seated and the stewards on duty will direct you accordingly.
  • Hand sanitising as you enter and leave the building will remain
  • The collection will be collected via a collection plate as you enter the building
  • There is to be limited movement around the church whilst in the building (ie no wandering round the building)
  • Tea & Coffee will be served after the service in the Bridge Suite where the stewards will direct you accordingly after the service.

If I want to maintain a social distance how do I do that ?

As you enter the building please ask a steward / welcomer for 2 social distancing signs. These are polite signs reminding people to respect your choice to socially distance. These are to be placed on the chair(s) either side of you.

We will remind everyone who attends the service to respect the wishes of those who wish to continue to remain seated in a social distanced manner.

The Church Council reserves the right to change the above at short notice should either government restrictions change, that advice from the Methodist Church changes, or that the situation changes within the building  to warrant a change to the above easing of restrictions.

Covid 19 is still apparent and the above tries to provide a careful balance of continuing to move the church forward in learning to live the Covid-19, but also remaining responsible to those who attend the church and surrounding community. The Autumn / Winter period provides some uncertainty on how the pandemic may continue to unfold and will be under careful monitoring by the church going forward.

Should you have any concerns or wish to discuss any of the above further contact us via info@walkdenmethodist.org.uk and we will be happy make contact and discuss this with you.

Thank you for your continued support and co-operation in these uncertain and difficult times.
