WHAT TO EXPECT
Please follow all guidance including keeping distance and using hand sanitiser. Please remain in your household. Face masks are now compulsory. Please bring your own and wear it when inside the building. Those leading, reading and preaching, may remove their masks when up the front to aid those who lip read.
Services begin at 10.15 am on Sundays. Please arrive between 9.50 am-10.05 am, to allow time to take seats and be ready for service to begin at 10.15 am.
Evening services begin at 18.30 pm. Please arrive from 18.20 pm.
When services are Holy Communion, it will be done in line with Church of England guidelines. Receiving Communion is up to the individual.
The pandemic means we have been currently advised singing is not recommended. While, therefore, we ask the congregation not to sing, this does not mean that we can't worship together. Our God is a great God and we can worship Him in many different ways! Come ready to give your heartfelt worship and praise to Him as we meet in the Church building and at homes around Crofton and beyond!
