Sunday Services Resume

15th October 2020 St Barnabas 0 Comments

Following our trial service on the 13th Sept we are going to start a weekly service at St. Barnabas at 10.00am. We are planning as we did in the trial service to make the service around 45 mins long as the wearing of face coverings for longer is not very appealing.

I am sure you won’t need reminding but we still will not be able to sing, but I believe we were uplifted and encouraged in Sept when we were all able to worship together just mouthing the words. In Septs service I led a 5 min teaching slot, but after reflecting on this during my sabbatical I feel strongly that there needs to be something more substantial.

Therefore, on Sunday mornings I will take the Ephesians passages from Rev Geoff’s Reflections and develop them a little bit more over 10-12 mins

We have a limited number of seats available for those who may enjoy gathering in the building together. (50) Booked seats are available on a first come, first served basis. Please contact the church office by email stbarnabas@canfordparish.org or by phone 01202 579 562

Seats need to be booked for every ‘body’ attending, including children. Only members of your household or support bubble will be allowed within one booking and seated together.

Doors will open 15 minutes before the service begins. Please arrive before the service starts and ensure you follow the directions of the Host Team. If you arrive after the service starts, you may discover that your seat has been given to someone else!

Please feel free to bring your own filled water bottle or hot drinks with you as we will not be serving any refreshments during the morning.
Please remember to bring a face mask with you for everyone aged 11 and over.

On arrival, you will be asked to use the provided hand sanitiser before being shown to your seat.

If you have been diagnosed or had any symptoms of Covid-19 in the last 14 days, or if you feel at all unwell on the day, please stay at home and join us online if you have the tech to do so.

If you become unwell and display Covid-19 symptoms within 14 days of you attending a church service, please let us know as soon as possible for track and trace purposes.

If you save a seat and then realise you can no longer join us, please use the ‘release my seats’ button on our website so that we can release the seat to somebody else.

Bring your own bibles.

Every blessing

Geoff
