    Offering weekly services in the building is dependent upon finding enough volunteers for each Sunday morning to steward; show the preacher’s presentation slides and clips, and be on the sound desk; read from the Bible, lead intercessions; and facilitate Holy Communion on occasions.

    Latest Coronavirus Guidance 24th February 2022

    Extract below of the latest Methodist Church Guidance

    What churches might still consider going forward?

    The Government is still encouraging safer behaviours to reduce the risk of infection.  Churches may still wish to consider these to help those using their buildings feel safe and welcome:


    1 Consider letting fresh air in if possible:

    Try to maintain adequate ventilation to rooms, where possible and practical. 


    2 Consider wearing face coverings in areas of high risk:

    It may be suitable in crowded or enclosed spaces, particularly if ventilation is poor, to wear face coverings, particularly where you share spaces with people you do not normally meet.


    3 Considerations if feeling unwell:

    Anyone experiencing Covid-19 symptoms should still consider taking a test and staying at home and avoiding contact with others if the test is positive.  Particularly if working in higher risk environments or with those who might be vulnerable.


    4 Consider how to encourage ongoing good hygiene practice:

    It may be helpful to continue to provide hand sanitiser in convenient areas for everyone to use; keep established practices of cleaning surfaces touched regularly and rooms with high use by different groups such as toilets and kitchens.  Similarly, continue to encourage good hygiene when considering handling shared objects, communal resources and food & drink.
