Sunday Meeting Guidlines

As we recommence Sunday morning meetings, there are a number of new procedures that we need to implement to keep everyone safe.

These common sense guidelines have been formulated via our risk assessment in coordination with the Town Council and in accordance with Government legislation.

  • Anyone attending any of our meetings will be asked to follow government guidance on social distancing.
  • Anyone who has any symptoms of Covid (high temperature, persistent cough, loss of smell/taste), or a positive test, will be asked not to attend for at least two weeks.
  • We will need contact details of those attending to facilitate track and trace if someone present tests positive for Covid.
  • Hand sanitiser will be available at the entrance and you will be asked to use it prior to entering the Weald Hall.
  • There is a QR code in the entrance.  Please feel free to scan this as you enter.
  • Face masks should be worn at all times when in the Civic Centre.  The only exceptions to this will be the worship leader, host/preacher or anyone contributing to the meeting and then only for the time that they are fulfilling that role, children under 11 years old, and those with a medical exemption.
  • We will not be serving refreshments before or after the meeting.
  • We will not be distributing any printed materials.  Please bring your own bibles and ensure you take them, and any other belongings and rubbish, away with you.
  • We will, where weather allows, keep doors and windows open to maintain airflow, so please make sure you bring layers to keep warm.
  • We will have the grey offering box by the door as you exit.  Please place any offerings in a marked envelope on your way out rather than walking to it during the meeting.
  • The disabled toilet will be open but it would be much simpler for all if you are able to use the toilet at home before or after the meeting.  Wipes will be available for you to wipe surfaces after you have washed your hands.
  • Children under 11 will need to be accompanied to the toilet by someone from their bubble to ensure their safety.
