We are delighted that from 18th April we will be able to run two Sunday services in person indoors at Barnes Road, and still continue to livestream the 11.00am service too. We know that some are very excited about coming back to church in person, and others will, for good reason, still be unable to. We understand that. If you've got any concerns or questions about returning to church, and would like to chat to one of the elders or a member of the staff team about this, don't hesitate to get in touch with one of us.
From Sunday 18th April 2021, both our services will be meeting back in person at Binscombe Church, Barnes Road. You would be very welcome to join us at either the 9.30am or 11.00am service, but due to limited space it helps us to know in advance who would like to come. Please fill in the online form (ideally by the Friday evening before the Sunday you would like to come; but if this isn't possible, do just turn up – you will still receive a warm welcome!).
9.30am: If you have pre-school or primary school-aged children, this would be the best service for you, as there will be children's groups in bubbles of 15, running concurrently alongside the main church service. (Scramblers/Explorers: aged 3-year 2; Adventurers: years 3-6) At the moment there is no supervised creche, but babies and toddlers are welcome in the service. Please bring your own toys!
11.00am: this will be the same format as the 9.30am service, but there will not be children's groups running alongside.
Each week, our 11.00am service will continue to be livestreamed on our Youtube channel, or you can find it on the "livestream" tab on our church website, where you can also find previous services.
For those who haven't been before, please be assured that we take great care in making sure that those services are as Covid-secure as possible. The seating is all socially distanced, there is a robust cleaning schedule before and after services, and the church is well-ventilated too, with doors and windows open. You can read the risk assessment here.
How lovely it is to be able to worship God with brothers and sisters in 3D again! If you would like to come to these services, you will need to sign up; church family members will have received instructions on this. If you are a visitor, please do email us if possible to let us know you would like to come along.
Please pray for this time of transition, and that we can serve and love one another well as we take these next steps...
