Re-opening KBC Building / Resuming Activities

The church building will be re-opening on Sunday 2nd August. Risk assessments have been made and plans implemented to help keep everyone Covid secure.

Services will be shorter - no singing is allowed and everyone will need to be socially distanced. Also no children’s work is allowed. Other church organisations and groups remain suspended for the time being.

  • If you arrive by car, please park on the side of the church you intend to enter & to sit, as the centre of the foyer will be blocked off. However you arrive, you will find tape indicating the 2 metre social distance spacing to ensure that everyone is safely spaced to enter the church

  • On entering you will be welcomed by one of the Welcome Team, who will check with you that you do not have any of the 3 recognised Covid symptoms: high temperature; loss of taste and/or smell; persistent new cough and ask that you use the hand sanitiser. They will also record your attendance on the list we are required to keep for Test & Trace. You are strongly encouraged to wear masks so these will be available at the Welcome table for you to take if you have not brought your own.
     

  • Then please follow the floor arrows into the sanctuary & sit in one of the places marked by large yellow pegs whether as an individual or together as a household or bubble. Windows will be open for ventilation so please dress accordingly. The service will start at 10.30 am or as soon as possible thereafter, given that it will take a little longer for everyone to enter and last for a maximum of 1 hour. Unfortunately there can be no singing but in some services there will be live music.
     

  • After the service please leave directly, following the floor arrows through the doors to the side of the  platform. Offering baskets will be placed on the shelves by the doors for those of you who use the envelope scheme or give cash. Then go through the fire doors to the right or the left depending on which side of the building you left the Sanctuary.  If you think you will have difficulty with the distance to walk or in negotiating the fire door steps, please wait until everyone has left & then exit via the foyer. There will be no tea or coffee but you are welcome to stay and chat outside so long as you observe the government guidelines, currently no more than 6 people or 2 households in a group, of course keeping 2 metres apart.
     

  • As Pastor Steve will not be available during August, Richard will lead on 2nd; Glenys 9th, Antony & Barbara 16th ; Richard  23rd and Virtual Church but no live service on 30th August Bank Holiday weekend.
     

  •  The Virtual Service will continue throughout August. Also the service will be streamed on our Facebook page. Find this via the Facebook symbol (f) on top right of our homepage.
                       

  • Obviously you should not come to church if you exhibit any of the 3 main symptoms of the Coronavirus. Please do not come either if you are feeling unwell.
     

  • Toilets – the toilet in the foyer will only be available for use during the service. After the service, use the East Hall toilets, if you need to, one person at a time. 
                         

  • Any children under 11 should be accompanied.
     

  • Please take any waste home with you if possible.

    Thank-you.
