Guidelines for those attending meetings in the Church Building:

  • In order to protect one another please do not attend church if you or a member of your household are still experiencing, or not yet recovered from, symptoms of COVID-19 or if you are in an at-risk group.

  • Please do not plan to arrive more than 10 minutes prior to the service beginning. There may be a short queue at the entrance.

  • You will be invited to enter the building through the main doors.

  • In-line with PHA advice, face coverings should be worn at St. Elizabeth's (except for those who are in an exempt group). These must be worn at all times while in the building.

  • The church wardens and/or welcome team will be at the entrance to assist you with any information or assistance you need. They will also scan your ticket and record your attendance.

  • Everyone will be asked to hand sanitise on entrance and keep social distance all times, especially at entrances and exits. Many pews will be blocked for this purpose.

  • The lift will be in operation for those who need it, but we ask that users allow the wardens to operate the lift externally.

  • Households do not need to social distance and we ask that they sit together at all times (there will be no Creche facilities available at this stage).

  • Attendees should avoid touching surfaces apart from where they are sitting.

  • Tissues will be provided if needed but please try to remember to bring your own. All tissues should be kept and discarded at home.

  • Stewards will guide you to an appropriate seat, with seating being filled from the front to back (unless someone needs to sit near exits for health reasons). Please note a one-way system will be in operation.

  • The service will be conducted using a screen and there will be no books in the pews. You may like to bring your own Bible to help you listen to God’s Word being taught.

  • As singing can spread COVID-19 there will be no singing at this stage.

  • No food or drink can be served or consumed in the building before, during or after a service

  • If you experience symptoms of COVID-19 during a service, you should inform a church warden or staff member immediately.

  • The offering will be taken in the usual fashion (i.e. retiring collection)

  • Toilets will be closed, except in an emergency. If you need to use the bathroom facilities, please ensure to wipe down hard surfaces with the cleaning products provided. Please do not use the hand dryers, but instead use the paper towels provided. There should be 5 minutes left before anyone else should use the same facility.

  • Guided by our wardens, you will be required to exit the building as soon as possible after the end of the service. Exit will be through the main doors.

  • We ask that people do not congregate in the building or at the exits after the service.
