Church Information during Covid-19 pandemic




As people will be aware, we are in an evolving situation nationally. As a church we are trying to listen to advice and take what precautionary measures we can. In line with current Government and NHS guidance, the most important thing to protect yourself and other people is to maintain good standards of hygiene. In particular this means:

a) washing hands with soap and water, or using a 60% alcohol hand sanitiser, regularly throughout the day
b) catching coughs and sneezes in a tissue, binning it and washing your hands – or, if need be, coughing or sneezing into the crook of the arm

If you have been in an infected area in the last 14 days OR had contact with somebody with coronavirus AND have a cough, fever or shortness of breath, please take yourself home and ring your GP or NHS 24 (tel:111) for advice.
For those who are elderly or have an underlying health condition, extra care is required. This means thinking carefully about levels of social interaction and, if appropriate, adopting measures of (what is being called) self-isolation.

As things currently stand

  • Any changes will be posted on Facebook and the church website.
  • We would like to maintain communication with each other as a church family. Kathryn Reid is willing to be a point of contact; her number is 01875 340654.
  • If you become unwell or are aware of anyone on their own requiring help managing any self-isolation, please let us know. We would like to uphold each other in prayer and, if possible, do what we can practically to assist in any situation of difficulty or hardship.
  • Please look out for others. We would like to encourage everyone to support and remain in touch with each other as much as possible.
  • A reading you may find helpful is Psalm 91.

Be wise – Be considerate – Be careful
And above all, pray
