Take a read through this message from Pastor Mark as he shares an update on in-person services.
As you know, we have been back in the room for in-person services for a number of months now, gathering according to the government guidelines. I have loved being together again, and there is definitely a fresh hunger and anticipation in the room.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding of our requirements for in-person services, which you have so graciously been following.
This week, the Plan B rules, imposed in early December to battle Omicron, have been lifted. This relaxing of guidance means the legal requirement for face coverings in public places has dropped, and from Sunday, 30 January, we will no longer be asking people to wear face coverings.
However, the government is still advising people to wear masks in enclosed or crowded spaces and when meeting strangers. So, if you feel more comfortable doing so, you are free to continue wearing a mask.
Keeping You Safe
We will also be maintaining some other measures, including:
- We will continue to have sanitiser stations available throughout the building, and please don’t attend events or services if you have any COVID-19 symptoms. You should seek a PCR test and self-isolate until a result is received.
- Windows and doors will be opened to provide ventilation where possible. We’re also making use of our air-exchange system in the Auditorium, to continually circulate and filter the air.
Our Park and Ride facility will continue running, so please park across the road from the church building in the College Car Park. For directions, visit the parking page on our website. Once you have parked, you can walk back to the church building or use one of our shuttle minibuses for a quick drive.
If you are unable to join us in the room, Online Services will still be available at 9:00am and 10:45am, weekly! Our online services will go live 15 minutes before the start of each service for a pre-service hangout at mkcc.org.uk/live.
I’m so excited and expectant for all that God is going to do among us – for all of us, my prayer is that this will be a significant time of reconnection! I look forward to seeing you in person this Sunday, as we worship together and give thanks for what God has done and will do.
