Back To Church

Whilst Covid restrictions have been lifted, the pandemic is still far from over and currently the number of people infected by Covid is increasing.  Government and medical advisers are urging people to continue to be cautious and we, as a church family, whatever our individual preferences, should be considerate and mindful of each other.
It has been encouraging to be able to meet at Bethesda in recent weeks and moving forwards the arrangements are as follows:
  • it is not necessary to pre-book to attend Sunday services.
  • we are using alternate pews for seating – you may choose to sit where you feel comfortable but we encourage a degree of social distancing to be maintained and consideration to be shown to others.
  • we are able to sing (Praise the Lord!)
  • masks should still be worn especially as the risk of spreading infection is higher when singing inside buildings.
  • we would encourage conversations with each other before and after services to take place outside of the building, again being mindful of each other.
  • we will continue to keep a record of those who attend for track and trace purposes.
  • services will still be live-streamed and made available on the website and DVD’s.
We will continually monitor the situation and make any adjustments that may be possible or necessary.
Please thank God for His goodness towards us and pray that we may all experience His presence as we worship together in the days ahead.

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him.”

Romans 15 v 13.
