Covid19 Latest Update June 2021
We are back in our building!
As the government continues to gradually lift restrictions we are now holding our weekly Sunday morning services, and once a month an evening service, back in the building. However, for those who are unable to attend the services we will be continuing to stream them live on YouTube. To enable us to maintain a Covid19 secure environment including social distancing please book your free ticket(s) via the blue buttons below. Currently the booking system is only in place up to and including 20th June, in anticipation of the lifting of all restrictions on the 21st June. However, should the government decide to postpone this, the booking system will be extended accordingly. Look out for further updates in line with subsequent government announcements!
We are continuing to broadcast via YouTube which has no restrictions on numbers or location! Please click on the red button below to view our You Tube channel in a new page
If you know of someone who does not have internet facilities but would like to receive either a weekly DVD or CD of our services, please contact us by clicking here to be taken to the contact page on this website. Thank you.
To comply with current government restrictions all our regular activities have been suspended, but following the lifting of some restrictions we are again running our Free Babees support group for expectant and new parents with non mobile babies, with two different sessions on either a Thursday morning or afternoon. To book your place at either session please click on the blue buttons below.
For other activities our leadership will continue to consider the most appropriate and safest way & time to re-open, together with any appropriate measures required to keep everyone as safe as possible and in accordance with current regulations and guidelines. Please continue to watch this space for further updates about our activities!
