ORDER OF SERVICE
The Church is fitted with a loop system. The words of hymns and songs, and Bible readings etc are displayed on the screen. As the Service is live streamed you (and / or your family) could be on camera as efforts are made to help those watching at home to feel a part of the worshipping congregation in the Church, if you have any concerns regarding this please speak to an elder or welcomer.
The wearing of masks during the Service and around the building is your personal choice. Please be mindful of those who wish or still need to be cautious.
