Order of Service
We are delighted that, following the lifting of government restrictions, we are once again holding public services in our church buildings. Whilst this is a cause for great thanksgiving, we are also only too aware that many people remain unable to come to services for a variety of reasons, and so for the time-being we shall continue to share worship online as well. For times and locations of services across our two church buildings, please read our online newsletter (available on our home page). Most weeks, our Sunday services will be at 9am in St John’s, and 10.30am in St Luke’s. Below are some videos telling you a little bit about to expect, an order of service and service sheets you can download to take with you to church services, our ‘Protocol for Public Worship’ document that will give you some more detail on how things will work, and a Questions and Answers section.

Questions and Answers We shall be holding public services again from 26th July. Here are some questions and answers that you might have about coming to a service at St John’s or St Luke’s. Will any of these plans to do with services change? Yes, things may change from week to week. We will continue to be guided by the requirements of the government, Public Health England, and the Diocese of London, and we may also have to adapt things as we learn from our own experiences. Do keep checking our website. How much space is there in the church buildings? There will be space for a maximum of 11 bubbles in St John’s, with a maximum potential capacity of 23 individuals. In St Luke’s, we hope to be able to receive up to 32 bubbles, which has a maximum potential capacity of 100 people. However, with a number of people attending as individuals, the actual maximum capacity at any particular service is likely to prove significantly lower. Do I have to book to get a place at a service? The PCC has decided not to offer a booking system at this stage, and instead to offer seating in our church buildings on a first-come, first-seated basis. This is partly in recognition of the large capacity at St Luke’s, for anyone unable to fit inside St John’s. We shall keep this under constant review in case demand is too high. Why haven’t public services started sooner? The government’s regulations require a lot of careful thought and planning. As we are a fairly small congregation and we rely entirely on volunteers, we have intentionally taken the time to make things as safe as possible. What pattern of services will you have? For the time-being, our pattern of services each week will be a service of Holy Communion in St John’s at 9am, and then the sam service at 10.30am in St Luke’s. Our united service on the first Sunday, and Children’s Service on the third Sunday, will return in due course. Can I bring children with me? Absolutely! However, please be aware that they will need to stay with you in your seats; for the time-being, there won’t be Junior Church and our Children’s Corners will not be accessible. Will the toilet be open? A toilet will be available at both church buildings. Services will be shorter than usual however, so there will be less time to hold on! How will Holy Communion work? Communion will be administered in one kind only (i.e. just the bread). The priest taking the service will take a number of precautions, as instructed by the Church of England’s guidance, to ensure that the bread to be distributed is as safe as possible, which will be brought to people in their seats. If I come, do I have to receive Holy Communion? No, you are welcome to attend the service but not receive Holy Communion. Please feel under no expectation or obligation to participate if this would make you feel anxious or uncomfortable. Will you keep sharing worship online? Yes, we will. We are intending to share one of our two church services live online, and will continue to do so for some time to come. We shall also continue producing our Sunday essentials video, and our online Children’s Service. Will there be refreshments afterwards? Not for the time-being. The regulations for public worship request that we disperse promptly after a service has finished. Where can I read about what is being done to make sure the church is as safe as possible? Our Protocol for Public Worship (above) will provide you with lots of information. If you would like to see a copy of our risk assessment, please contact revpetergodden@outlook.com. Are all these changes and restrictions really necessary? Will it feel like church? We are required by the government’s regulations to put these measures in place. It will feel quite different to services back at the start of the year. However, we hope that being able to gather together in sacred space will be a special and powerful thing, despite the restrictions we will experience. What about baptisms? Permission has now been given for baptisms to take place. Again, these will look fairly different to a usual service, and regulations around physical distancing and other factors will likewise be in place. The vicar will shortly be in contact with those families who had been in the process of preparing for or arranging a baptism prior to the pandemic.
