Sunday Worship 11 a.m.
You are welcome to join us at our Sunday Worship Service at the church or via Facebook Live. (www.facebook.com/barnesbaptistchurch)
Because of continuing Covid Restrictions and the need to socially distance we have to limit attendance
at our Sunday Services. We sincerely apologise for any disapointment this may cause as we follow
guidelines to ensure the safety of all.
Please see below with regards to current lock-down restrictions.
Wednesday on-line Bible Study, 8 pm - contact Pastor Graham for further details.
The Government has announced a four week lock-down that prevents us from physically gathering together for worship until Sunday 6th December 2020. This deadline may be extended so please contact the Church to find out whether or not we are able to be open for attendance. Services will continue to be livestreamed (see above for the link).
When open for congregational worship we will continue to adhere to Government, Baptist Union and London Baptist Association guidelines.
In order for us to re-open the church for public worship we need to meet current government requirements. It is in accordance with these requirements that the Baptist Union of Great Britain has issued the following guidelines. Please familiarise yourself with them before coming to the church.
We have carried out a risk assessment and have had to make a number of changes to ensure the church is a safe environment and that risks are kept to a minimum. However, we all need to act responsibly and considerately. COVID-19 has not gone away and as long as the threat remains it cannot be ‘church as usual’. Please be patient and understanding as we journey together through these challenging times.
Key Principles for Safely Opening Places of Worship
The church will be thoroughly cleaned before and after each service. But your co-operation is essential to health and safety of the fellowship.
Sadly, there will be those who feel unable to attend because of their vulnerability and/or need to isolate. Those over 70 are also advised to stay at home. We will continue to stay in contact and will be remembering you in our prays. Please stay in touch!
More importantly, if you are showing symptoms of COVID-19 or are self-isolating because of possible or actual COVID-19 in your household or because you have been told to do so by NHS Test and Trace you must stay home.
Finally,it would be helpful to know if you are coming to the Sunday Service as it helps us with our preparations. If so, please email me or text Esther to confirm.
