With the rise in cases across the Tunbridge Wells / Tonbridge in recent weeks and changes announced on 8th December 2021 regarding the compulsory wearing of face masks the Church Council is asking those attending church services to be mindful of the following.
We would ask you to book in to our services using our website calendar / Churchsuite or telephone call to the Church Office. This allows us to monitor numbers of our more popular services and keep a record of who is attending in case there is an outbreak, and people need notifying so that they can isolate.
From 10th December the wearing of face masks in ‘places of worship’ and community facilities is a legal requirement unless you have a bona fide health concern, or you are a child under the age of 11 years. We therefore, ask for your support in wearing these throughout the building, including when singing.
Exemptions however remain for those leading services and preaching, those reading the bible or leading intercession and our musicians.
This will continue to be an important aspect of entering the building, and of keeping both yourself and others safe.
This will continue with windows, and when appropriate doors, open throughout the building.
Sadly, this pandemic has not gone away and we need to continue to live and operate with the consequences of it. Our hope and prayer is that we continue to provide a safe environment in which all those who feel able to join us may do so. Your help and understanding of the challenges is important to us as we move forward as the Body of Christ.
