CIRCUIT ADVICE ON COVID PRECAUTIONS
The government's guidance and legal requirements on our behaviour regarding Covid-19 change, but we need to remind ourselves that the visus has not gone away.
Please note the following guidance from the Circuit Leadership Team with regard to worship and letting of church premises to outside groups in order to protect all those around us and ourselves.
Everyone is encouraged to take a free lateral flow test before attending church. This is the best precaution we can take to minimise risk of spreading Covid. Anyone testing positive should not attend but isolate and follow the steps required by the government.
We encourage local churches to welcome everyone to worship in a loving and caring way, but to continue to observe
HANDS – FACE – SPACE
Hands : to encourage the use of hand gel on entering and leaving the premises.
Face: to encourage the continued wearing of face coverings by those who are able to do so.
Space: to maintain appropriate distance between one another as far as is possible.
Track and trace
Everyone is encouraged to zap the QR code on arrival.
Singing is still permitted in public places and is a core of our worship life.
We encourage folk to sing gently in worship. The louder people sing (or talk!) the further their breath particles are spread, which are the culprits spreading the virus.
Preacher: please lead into the singing of hymns and worship songs by gently reinforcing the importance of singing gently.
Letting of Church Premises
We encourage all groups using our rooms to use the sanitising fluids provided and face-coverings. We also encourage rooms to be fully ventilated as much as possible during your meetings.
Leaders of groups are reminded that they are responsible for making whatever decisions they feel are appropriate with regard to the layout of the rooms and the social distancing for the safety of their members.
