Reopening

WELCOME BACK!

Before booking your space, read carefully:

To ensure the safety of all our members and visitors, we have adopted the following measures at Central London Church:

– You will need to self-isolate if you visited or made a transit stop in a country, territory or a region that is not on the list in the 14 days before you arrive in England. Check the link here.

– Self-Isolate in your house if you or anyone in your household has symptoms of Covid-19.

-Services have a limited number of people that are allowed inside the building and to attend you will need to book your seat. Your details will be stored for 21 days for track and trace purposes according to the latest UK government guidelines.

– We are missing you, and we are sure you are missing all your brothers and sisters, but we have to inform you that we are still practising Social Distancing in church. It means: Do not hug or shake hands and maintain a distance of at least 2 metres from anyone while in the building.

Each time you plan to attend you will be required to book your seat and register with your personal contact details.

For small children, you will take responsibility for them. Please err on the side of caution if you or anyone in your care or party is feeling unwell and advise accordingly. If you fail to book your seat you CANNOT be admitted to the Church Service.

Alternatively, you can scan the QR code displayed at the entrance of church so your details will only be sent directly to NHS. Bear in mind that you need to register with the official NHS mobile app to be able to check-in with your mobile device and a seat can’t be guaranteed if you choose to use this method. More details and the download links can be found on the following link.

Please be mindful that even though the following doesn’t prevent you from coming to church we have the responsibility for your safety and wellbeing. Therefore we need to inform that you could be at medium or high risk. This will be concerning you or anyone from your household that falls any of the categories stated below.

By booking, you acknowledge that you have read and understood the statements above.

– Please, bring your face mask to church and personal hand sanitiser.

– Please, only book your space if you are sure you will come. Please book the number of tickets of people coming with you (families and friends etc.) to set up the chairs accordingly.

– If you have children please keep them with you at all times as they will not be free to roam as this provides a further safety hazard.

Finally, bring your smile with you! We are looking forward to seeing you again and worship together.
