Well the Government announcement yesterday was a little surprising wasn't it? The 10 person rule means that normal worship and activity is not yet possible therefore...our worship will continue as it has been in Alert levels 3 and 4.
However, we now have further freedoms! These include:
1. Using the church office
2. Running small groups (10 people or less)
3. Allowing small hire groups to return to our properties (10 people or less)
4. Pastorally visiting people.
With small hire groups, the challenge is likely to be the cleaning costs may be more than the income from the room hire!
This wait before we can worship together again is an excellent opportunity to prepare ourselves and our buildings to protect those vulnerable members within our Connexion. The threat of further virus outbreaks will be with us for many months and as the government has stated, now is not the time to undo the good we have already achieved.
Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.
CLICK HERE to read the full version of activities allowable to us at this time. Please forgive the amount of reading. It is challenging to balance clarity and brevity against the scope of what we do, to get to the real essence of what is needed.
As always, please contact us if you have any questions, thoughts or concerns.
Yours in peace and grace
