Reopening and Coronavirus updates


Our plans to reopen the Church and Church Centre 

In light of Government guidance allowing churches to re-open, St John's PCC is currently making plans to allow the church family to meet together in person. We would like to re-open the church and church centre for meetings as soon as we can do so safely.

Our current plan is for some small group meetings to happen in the church centre from 1st September, and for Sunday meetings to recommence on Sunday 20th September, following completion of building works to install new lighting. To enable social distancing, there will be a booking system, details of which we will share nearer the time. With a reduced capacity, we won’t all be able to attend in person each week, but we will seek to organise this as fairly as possible. We also plan to live stream these services so that those who cannot physically join with the church family will be able to watch online.

We are sorry that this cannot happen sooner, but the planned lighting overhaul in the church, taking place over the summer period, has made it difficult to organise a return to church any earlier. However, we're looking into other options that may work in the meantime.

With the coronavirus situation constantly evolving, plans will be subject to the latest Government guidance.

We thank you for your patience as we work all this out. Please do continue to join us online in the meantime.
