Coronavirus 

At the recent Officers’ meeting the final arrangements for reopening the Church were agreed.  The first service back at MBC will be on Sunday 13.09.2020.

Keith will lead from the porch at the Front Door – seating goes from the back of the church to the front under the cross. We will begin with worship leading into a Chat time. Keith will give a short sermon followed by prayer. We will finish with a song and a Blessing.

The songs / music will be from YouTube and played through our sound system. Unfortunately, we are not allowed to sing nor are we allowed to leave our allocated seats – there are 23 seats available on a first come first served basis. Preference will be given to those who have been unable to join the streamed services online on Facebook. Services will last no longer than 45 – 50 minutes.

Here’s how it will work:-

  • On arrival, socially distance in a queue along the ramp to enter the church by the back door. Sanitisers will be available for use on entry and facemasks must be worn.
  • I will be at the door and have facemasks available for those who do not have their own. I will check you in and show you to your seat – simply the numbering starts at 1 by the Front Door.
  • When you reach your seat, please do not move from it until the service is over. Keith will tell you when it is time to leave.
  • Please leave the chapel in an orderly fashion starting with seat no.1 through the Front Door.
  • Please do not mix with anyone else unless they are in your bubble / or you are socially distanced.
  • Sadly, there will be NO refreshments and NO toilet facilities available

 
Those who were unable to attend on 13th September will be given preference for our next date.

When we have assessed how well the service went and whether the Lockdown restrictions were adhered to then the decision will be made on how frequently services might be in the future.

If you would like to attend this re-opening service, booking opens at 9.30 am on MONDAY 07.09.2020 and Jacquie will confirm as soon as possible if there is a seat available for you.

Please email Jacque at jacquieosmundsmith@btinternet.com 

Please note that other small groups are currently still postponed.
