Covid 19 Update
The Government Roadmap for easing
People are, rightly, curious about when we might re-open our building for Worship and other activities now that the Government has set out its Roadmap. The progress of each step in the tables below is dependent on four Tests.
If the Tests are not met, then the next step will be delayed until they are. You can see, then, that any decisions taken by the Elders to re-open any element of the buildings use are also dependent on these four Tests. To decide now, to open the building on a specific date in the future is rather difficult without knowing that the Tests will be met by then.
The Elders meeting on 4th March will look at the best and safest way to consider re-opening our building.
The Four Tests
Before taking each step, the Government will review the latest data on the impact of the previous step against four tests. The tests are:
1.The vaccine deployment programme continues successfully.
2.Evidence shows vaccines are sufficiently effective in reducing hospitalisations and deaths in those vaccinated.
3.Infection rates do not risk a surge in hospitalisations which would put unsustainable pressure on the NHS.
4.Our assessment of the risks is not fundamentally changed by new Variants of Concern.
Our doors may be closed but the Church is not. We are still here to serve the neighbourhood.

As we continue to provide worship for you to use whilst our building is closed, we will stream or record worship from the building or provide a podcast for you to access on Sunday mornings, or at any other time that you want to access it.
The method that we use will always depend upon the technical resources, both human and physical, that are available to us at any time.
