The watch parties in our venues will be a mix of live hosting and watching the online content but in our buildings. These will be socially-distanced gatherings following the government guidelines. Our services will still be broadcast online to watch from home.

In order to attend, you must book your spot ahead of time. Every time you wish to attend, you will need to book a free ticket online before you come to church.

TICKETS

Each of our venues will have limited capacity, so we can create a safe and socially distanced experience.

To ensure you get a seat, we’re going to require you to reserve a free ticket online before you come to church.

Tickets need to be booked for every person attending, and we ask that you only book for those who will attend.

We ask that you arrive 30 minutes before the service starts to allow us to check you in and seat you.

You will be able to book your tickets on this page.

TOUCH FREE

When you arrive, our amazing welcome team will check you in, take your temperature and help you to your seat.

Content will either be on a big screen or you can access on your smartphone. This includes our welcome, any sign-ups and the offering.

HYGIENE

All our venues are deep cleaned and disinfected.

We do ask that if you are ill you continue to view our online service in your home. Please do not attend our venues or a watch party in someone else’s home if you are showing any symptoms of COVID-19.

We are asking you to wear a face mask or visor and we’ll have hand-sanitiser stations available.

All of our team will be wearing masks or visors.

SOCIAL DISTANCING

Seating will be arranged in accordance with the latest social distancing guidelines. Your bubble will be shown to their seats. Unfortunately, you will be unable to ‘choose’ your seats at this time, it is really important that we respect this.

We ask that should you have children with you that you look after them during the service and keep them within your seats.

It’s also a hug free zone!

We know you may meet people you have not seen in months for the first time but please respect the government guidelines and do not greet people with a hug!

TRAVEL TO CHURCH

Please follow the current guidelines for travel on public transport and if arriving by car, we ask that you follow the venue team’s instructions on where to park. They are filling the car park in as safe a manner as possible. We may require you to park in alternative spaces.

Whilst in our car parks, we ask that you stay alert and respect the current social distancing guidance. Please wear your face mask from the moment you exit your car.

FAMILIES

Some locations will have an exciting programme for your child to engage with. This will have praise, worship, games, a message and a craft to enjoy. Every activity done will be socially distant away from each other so that we are meeting within the COVID-19 guidelines. Meaning, each child will have a place to stand, play, dance, laugh, listen and complete all activities. We are ensuring that this socially distanced setup will be monitored at all times, but while ensuring the fun is alive! All our leaders will be wearing masks and will have a temperature check before the programme begins to protect your child.

Younger children are very welcome and will receive an age-appropriate activity pack to enjoy as they sit with their family during the service. Please note that these children will remain the responsibility of their parents throughout the service and should be seated with their family to ensure that social distancing measures can be respected.
We will be continuing to share and upload new content from Equippers Kids online at www.equippers.co.uk/kidsathome for you to continue to enjoy.

WORSHIP

To prevent transmission, and in keeping with the current Government guidelines, we will not initially be singing out loud when we gather and we ask that you follow this request.

The worship will be shown on screen as it is in our homes via Church at Home.

MASKS

We are asking for everybody to bring and wear their own face mask or visor. Under 11 year olds are not required to wear face masks.

Masks will continually be worn from the moment you exit your car and you arrive back at your car. Masks will be worn throughout praise and worship, and when moving about the building.

PRAYER RESPONSE

Somebody will be available for social distancing prayer after the service.

TOILETS

Toilets will not be open unless in an emergency. Our services will be shorter than usual, so please plan accordingly.
