St Andrew's during the Covid-19 pandemic
With the relaxation of government Covid-19 restrictions you no longer need to book to come to Holy Communion services in Church on Sundays - just turn up.
However, we are keeping many Covid-19 avoidance procedures to keep you safe:
We are all premitted to sing again, but please keep your mask on as you sing and throughout worship for the sake of others who may be more vulnerable than you.
There will be a minimum of one seat social distance between you, or your bubble. If you wish you can increase the distance by asking one of the welcome team for an extra "do not sit here" card.
You will be invited by a welcomer to come forward for Holy Communion, if you are able to.
We are not restarting coffee/tea/cake in the lounge after services but all can chat together in the A2 garden after the service.
Live streamed services and previous services are available through our WORSHIP THIS WEEK web site where you can also access lots of activities and resources for families: click here: www.goldsworthpark.org.uk/wtw
If this is the first time you have visited St Andrew's on-line please send an email to our special email address firstname.lastname@example.org so we can keep in touch.
If you would like to be kept up to date with our services and activities please ask to be included on our weekly news email list - see details below.
Don't lose heart!
"since through God’s mercy we have this ministry, we do not lose heart… For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts..." 2 Corinthians 4:1,6
Archdeacon Martin asks us to encourage each other not to lose heart during the Covid-19 pandemic and restrictions, but be safe in the knowledge that we have the treasure of the good news.
