Covid 19 How To Book In For A Service


Kindly note to be able to attend a Wednesday or Sunday service you MUST pre-book. This can either be done by following this link or by ringing Diane in the office if you do not have online access and she will book you in if there is a space available. An individual booking must be made for each attendee as we do need a record of all those who have attended which we must keep for 21 days.

It is important please that everyone abides by the following:

(NOTE: Wednesday services have key differences in red text.)

1.      Book a place at the service

2.      If you are feeling at all unwell, or have been contacted by track and trace please do not attend the church even if you have booked a ticket.

3.     Please maintain 2m distance from anyone not in your household at all times.

4.      Entrance to the site will be via the doors in the Rider Hall Car park only. (Wed: Entrance to the site will be via the West Doors keeping to the left.)

5.      There will be no parking in the Rider Hall car park but drop off can be made and then cars parked in the main church car park. (Wed: Not Applicable)

6.      When you come to enter there will be 2m spaced queuing in the car park if required (this will be marked by signs and cones) (Wed: Not Applicable)

7.      A one-way system is in place starting in at the Rider Hall doors and moving through to the West Doors. This always needs to be maintained.  If you leave the building for whatever reason you will need to walk back round to the Rider Hall doors. (Wed: Not Applicable)

8.      As you reach the doors you will need to sanitise your hands; the stewards will then direct you to also wash your hands. It is important to do both. Please only use the toilets marked as in use to do this. (Wed: The door of the disabled toilet will be propped open to allow for safe handwashing.)

9.      Church is then entered through the double side doors.

10.    The stewards in the church will ask you to fill the church from the BACK of church. If you are with others from your household the stewards will move the chairs together for you. (Wed: The stewards in the church will ask you to fill from the FRONT of church.)

11.   There can be no singing (even when the hymns are played please), and no raised voices please (hold on to the Hallelujahs – one day soon it will be possible!).

12.   Communion will be distributed in wafer form only and the member of clergy will come to you in your seats. There are two things different here: no words will be spoken when the wafer is handed to you and it is very important that the member of clergy does not touch you and vice-versa.

13.   When we reach the end of the service we will leave from the back row first out through the West Doors. Please sanitise your hands on the way out.

14.   Once outside please move away from the doors promptly so that we avoid any groups or gatherings.

15.   Please follow the guidance of the stewards and the clergy at all times.

16.   If you are able, please ensure you wear a face mask.
