We’re excited to meet together again in our church building from Sunday 6th September.

In place of our regular service times, we’re having one Sunday Morning service at 10:00am. You can also join our services via YouTube.

We have already resumed our service at 10:15am on Thursdays.

Things to Know about Attending Church

 
We would love to see you at St Andrew’s if you can come. Here’s a few things to remind you about:
  • Please bring your own Bible and please turn up early
  • Please don’t park outside church
  • Sparklers and Rock Solid groups will be running from Sept 6, Pathfinders from Sept 13. Younger children are very welcome but be aware that we can’t run a creche.

And please note the following government guidance:

  • Anyone showing symptoms of COVID-19 (a new continuous cough, a high temperature or a loss of, or change in, their normal sense of taste or smell) should not attend
  • Where individuals are self-isolating due to a possible or confirmed case of COVID-19 in the household, or because they have been requested to so by NHS Test and Trace, please do not attend
  • Whilst shielded patients and those who are clinically vulnerable may choose to gather in groups outdoors and form support bubbles, they are still advised NOT to attend places of worship indoors.
  • In accordance with Test & Trace guidelines, a temporary register of church attendees will be completed and retained for 3 weeks before being securely destroyed. This will only be used to assist the NHS in investigation of a local outbreak.
  • The wearing of face coverings is mandatory from 8 August in line with updated government guidance (1 Aug). You can read more here about this and who is exempt here.

In place of our regular service times, we’re having one Sunday Morning service at 10:00am. You can also join our services via YouTube.
