Sunday Church Services at Halling Baptist Church

About this Event

As a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic, our church services were suspended from 22 March 2020. However, the UK Government has outlined new plans from 4th July allowing us to meet again. The purpose of this online booking system is:

  1. To enable us to manage seating arrangements with the appropriate Social Distancing measures
  2. To limit the number of people in attendance at any given time
  3. To gather temporary data (in a GDPR compliant way) to help us provide the NHS Test and Trace team with accurate records of visitors if needed for contact tracing and the investigation of local outbreaks.

IMPORTANT

  • You should follow the stay at home guidance if you or a member of your household has a new, continuous cough or high temperature or loss of or change to sense of smell or taste
  • If you are shielding, you should continue to follow the government’s advice on shielding (the government plans to pause shielding on 1 August but strict social distancing will remain in place)
  • If you develop symptoms during the Service, you will be asked to leave and follow the stay at home guidance
  • You should notify the church leaders if you develop symptoms at any point during the week

Steps for a “COVID-19 Secure” Building

  • All touchpoints will be cleaned before each Service
  • A one-way system is in operation (one entrance and one exit)
  • A 2m Social Distance is imposed throughout the premises and necessary measures are in force where a 2m distance is not possible
  • Information posters are displayed throughout the building
  • Toilets should only be used if absolutely necessary (please plan accordingly)
  • Sanitising gel is available throughout the building
  • Hot drinks, biscuits, etc will not be served until further notice
  • There will be a clear screen between the speaker and the congregation due to voice projection
  • We have a booking system in place to manage seat allocation and contact tracing

During meetings

  • Always observe the Social Distancing Guidelines — this includes the car park
  • We advise that face coverings be used only when walking to and from your seat
  • Bring your own Bible as pew Bibles will not be available. Do ask for a gift Bible if you do not have one
  • One volunteer will ensure that all visitors have booked a visit for the purpose of contact tracing
  • No offering will be collected during the meeting, but if electronic giving is not an option, a bag will be available
  • Children are welcome but remain the responsibility of their parents
