We will be updating this guidance shortly….

If you plan to attend our 4 p.m. afternoon service in the church, this is what you should expect:

  • As you approach the front door you will see a large Important Notice that states that if you have been tested positive for COVD-19 or have its symptoms you should not enter the building.
  • You should observe social distancing of 2 metres throughout the building.
  • You will have to wear a face mask while you are on the church premises.
  • Because of social distancing there will be no physical greeting (e.g. a handshake) as you enter.
  • As you enter you will be asked by one of the stewards if you have tested positive for COVID-19 or display its symptoms.
  • A steward will enter your name on an attendance list.  If you are a regular attender, we already have your contact details. 
  • Those who are not regular attenders will be asked for contact details.  This is a mandatory requirement.  It will allow us or the NHS Test and Trace service to contact you should any member of the congregation show symptoms of COVID-19 during the service or soon after they return home.  You will also be given a copy of the church Privacy Statement which has details of who you should contact if you develop COVID-19 symptoms after you return home from the service.
  • In the sanctuary itself there will be a ‘one-way’ system which will be clearly marked by arrows.
  • There will be no congregational singing during the service but there will be a collection.  There will be no Bibles available either, but you are welcome to bring your own.
  • Seating arrangements will allow families to sit together in ‘family bubbles.’ Family bubbles will be at least 2 metres away from any other family bubble or individual.
  • Should someone fall ill with COVID-19 symptoms during the service we have arrangements in place to deal with this occurrence as safely as possible.
  • At the end of the service you should leave the building promptly and not engage in prolonged conversations. 

SAFEGUARDING: Rosebery Park has policies in place to ensure compliance with legal requirements such as safeguarding.  All church members working with children have had safeguarding training and are DBS checked.
