COVID-19 Response 


Activities restart at Trinity
 
We are very pleased to announce that face to face services will restart at Trinity on 6th September.  A small group have been working hard to understand the many government and Methodist Church COVID-19 guidelines. A protocol for holding services in the church was agreed at an Extraordinary Church Council Zoom meeting on 16th August.
 
We intend to hold Sunday services at 10.30am every 2 weeks for a trial period starting on 6th September. The service will be very different to what we are used to, in that there will be no congregational singing, no chatting in the church and no refreshments. Seat numbers are limited therefore if you intend to attend a service you will be asked to indicate this by email or telephone message during the week before the service. Details of email and contact number will be included in Weekly News each week. Weekly News is available on our What's On page where you will also find a document outlining the arrangements in place to ensure that everyone is kept safe while attending the church.
 
Early Church will be holding a live Zoom service for families and children starting at 9.15am on Sundays when there is a service in the church (except 6 September). This will mean that everyone currently “attending” a Zoom service will be able to do so every Sunday. You are very welcome to join our Zoom services. Contact the Church office via the website or call the church office (01525 371905) for a Zoom invitation.
 
The anticipated schedule for the trial period is as follows:

6 Sept  Service on the web 10.30 Service at Trinity
13 Sept  Service on the web 10.00 Zoom Service
20 Sept 9.15 Zoom Early Church service 10.30 Service at Trinity

(All arrangements are conditional on local, national and Methodist Church guidelines which may change at short notice.)

Meanwhile there is a variety of resources for worship on our Church Life page or see the Weekly Page  for our “Service on the web” suitable for families and young people.
 
It is hoped that some of the other regular activities in the church premises will also restart in September.  More details to follow.
