COVID-19 CHURCH ATTENDANCE & WHAT TO EXPECT (Updated 12/11/20)

As of Sunday morning July 26th, with a new service start time of 10:30am, Mossley Methodist Church have been in a position to safely re-open our church building for weekly morning worship.

Read below to insure you and your fellow worshippers safety.

(The service will continue to be made available to those who feel they cannot attend, via Website and Telephone access)

Expect the Church Sanctuary to be well ventilated, with seating spaced out allowing for families and individuals.

Listed below are requirements for your safety. This is in compliance with the NI Executive and the Methodist Church in Ireland.

  1. Do not attend church if you are unwell and exhibiting any COVID-19 symptoms
  2. (UPDATE 12/11/20) The Methodist Church in Ireland have formally made the wearing of face masks in services, plus entering and leaving the building compulsory.
  3. Maintain 2m social distancing at all times. (There will be no handshakes or hugs)
  4. Use the hand sanitiser provided on entry to the building
  5. Wait to be seated in the Sanctuary by a Steward (unfortunately you will not be able to choose where to sit, and the Sanctuary will be seated front first)
  6. To enable ‘Track and Trace’, ensure that you provide your name and contact information to the Stewards
  7. All young children must remain with their parents throughout the service
  8. Toilets are available, but are restricted to a maximum occupancy of 2 people at any one time. Please wait outside until a place becomes available
  9. Offering may now be placed in a slotted collection box fitted to the wall on entrance to the Sanctuary
  10. There will be no crèche or Sunday School
  11. Leave the church promptly at the end of the service when directed to do so by the Stewards
  12. Take home your litter. i.e tissues, sweet wrappers, empty bottles, nappies
  13. Please maintain social distancing in the car park and foyer to ensure that everyone can safely leave

The leadership team in Mossley have the hope and trust that these measures will not hinder our call to Worship. We believe that where His people are, God is in the midst.

Matthew 18:20

 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
