Back to the Bible
The Birth of the Church and the Gift of the Spirit
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.
Although a matter of personal choice now with regard to the wearing of masks, please assist in this transition period by wearing your mask during singing, unless medically exempt, and at times of close contact when others may feel more comfortable if you wear one.
