SERVICES RE-STARTING IN THE CHAPEL

  • We are really looking forward to seeing everyone together again but you must not attend if you have any Covid-19 symptoms, or have knowingly been in contact with anyone with those symptoms. Our main priorities are to give glory to God in our worship, but also to ensure that we take all nationally advised precautions to prevent any spread of the virus.

  • Please only attend if you are happy to mix (socially distanced) with other people outside your family group. We are very conscious that some people will still be shielding, others may be in isolation, and others would prefer to stay in the safety of their own home.

  • There will be a one way system in operation through the Chapel. Please enter through the ‘old porch’ to the left and exit through the lounge & ‘new porch’ (except for wheelchair users when a steward will give access through the lounge area). Prior to the start of each service a steward will be on duty outside the Chapel to direct people as appropriate, and to prevent any ‘bunching’.

  • Please note that in line with the government request a list of those attending will be made as part of the track and trace scheme. Upon arrival a steward will confirm your name and contact details and ask if you have had any Covid-19 symptoms or been in contact with anyone who has had symptoms. These records will be taken and used only in accordance with data protection legislation and will be destroyed after 21 days.

  • We ask that everyone outside your ‘family’ group keeps a 2 metre distance wherever possible.

  • Please use the hand sanitizer provided upon entering the Chapel, and both before and after using any facilities, and upon exiting. You may wish to bring and use your own personal sanitizer if you prefer.

  • If you feel happier wearing a face mask then please do so. You may bring your own or request a disposable mask from the steward. If you wish to dispose of these before leaving please use the bin provided, which will be bagged and disposed of after 72 hours.

  • Please only use the seats that are marked with your name, or if you are a visitor one of the unmarked seats as guided by the steward. It would help if regular attendees used the same seats each week. Seats that are not to be used for social distancing purposes will either be removed or have an ‘X’ marked on the seat.

  • Due to the 2 metre rule only a limited number of people will be allowed in the Chapel. The spacing should easily be sufficient for normal numbers attending.

  • To avoid the use of the kitchen for drinking water during the services, a supply of bottled water will be available on the counter for you to use. Please either take the bottle with you when you leave or, if empty dispose of it in the bin provided outside.

  • No hugs or handshakes.

  • Singing: Sadly, at present we will be unable to sing openly during the service, so while we may hear music we can only sing along in our heads. Those praying may pray audibly but not loudly.

  • Communion: We expect to have our first communion in August. We will use the individual cups and wrapped bread. Each piece of bread will be prepared using gloves and wrapped in cling film. This will be available for you to collect on your way in. If you prefer you can bring your own bread or wafer.

  • Toilets: if you need to use the toilet during your time at the Chapel please use the disabled toilet. The toilets will be cleaned/disinfected by a steward after each use.

  • Whenever possible doors and windows will be kept open to allow appropriate ventilation.

  • Cleaning – before the service hard surfaces will be wiped over with a ‘Dettol’ wipe. This will include the kitchen counter, door handles, equipment safe, computer table, projector stand and keyboard.

  • For those unable to join us at the Chapel, the services will continue by Zoom using the existing codes. A link to Zoom will be available using a mobile phone in the Chapel. Internet Zoom users will be able to see each other as now, but only hear what is happening in the Chapel. If you are using the Zoom link please remember that those in the Chapel may be able to hear you, so please place yourself on mute or do not make unnecessary noise.

  • Please don’t be put off by the above. We are sure we will all soon get used to being together again. Please ask if you are unsure about anything.

    PLEASE NOTE: if anyone who attends the service catches the virus everyone who attended the service will be expected to self isolate for 14 days.
