Update June 2021 – Summary

A lot of discussions have been held over the last few weeks, including at the Members meeting, which include a number of adjustments to our weekly activities. We’re glad we have this opportunity to worship together, including singing again, and that some of the childrens’ work can resume in-person. The following list is a summary of where things are – if you have particular questions, please contact us.

  • Main services: Sunday Evening services will resume at the church from 4th July.Reminder: Coordinating the service arrangements – and especially the seating – is non-trivial in a building like Ebenezer. It would be really helpful if you could let us know by each Friday evening if you intend to come or not. Please SMS Lanny including your name and number of attendees and if you have any particular requirements. If you don’t have his number, please use this contact form. Where possible, services will continue to be streamed on our YouTube channel. We do have an overflow available if space becomes short.
  • Social distancing and covid-safe measures remain in place with some adjustments:
    • attendees are requested be arrive at scheduled times;
    • both doors at the front of the church should be used;
    • masks should be worn;
    • officers will check temperatures, and request the use of hand sanitizer;
    • check-in via the NHS app should be done where possible (otherwise provide details on the track and trace forms);
    • seating is socially distanced;
    • songs will be played on the screens; quiet singing behind masks is permitted;
    • an “overflow” in the mission hall is also available to watch the service;
    • Sunday school has resumed for younger children during the service;
    • Creche rooms are available, but we ask parents look after their own children at present.
  • Over the summer holiday period, the bible study aspect of our mid week meeting will take place along with the prayer time on Zoom from 7:30pm, using “Group 1” (contact us for a link if you don’t have one).
  • Footsteps and Gladiators have resumed meeting at he church on a Friday evening; TAG will continue to meet outdoors or on Zoom – please keep an eye on the parents’ group for details.
