This week sees our Creche and Sunday Schools restarting at St. Bartholomew’s and Friday Live! restarting at Church of the Saviour.
We are ‘fully open’ which means there is no requirement to book to come along to church. We will still have to maintain social distancing, wear face masks (over 11s), and have no singing or refreshments for the time being.
If you are planning on accessing the creche facility at Bart’s, only one parent/carer is required to come along to the creche per family and we currently have a maximum capacity of 10 adults. You can book to confirm your place in creche by replying to this email, otherwise, we can’t guarantee there will be enough space in creche on the day.
Older Sunday School will be happening outside (tomorrow is looking dry) and Younger Sunday School will be in a school classroom. More detail lower down in this email. Any questions please get in touch.
Parents who are hoping to register their attendance for 2020-21 need to come along in person in June, July, and August and sign the attendance register in the foyer. If that is not going to be possible because of health reasons then please get in touch.
To make things smoother when these re-open, the registration form for creche and Sunday school is attached. Please could parents fill it in and send it back to me?
Creche: We’re going to try something a bit different in creche now we’re reopening! We’ll get into a circle and do some singing/dancing/instruments to some Christian kids’ songs. We’ll then have a Bible-related story, followed by some colouring for those who want to and time to play with the toys. One parent will need to come in with their child. Adults will need to wear masks, and the number of adults is currently limited to 10.
Sunday School: There are two Sunday School groups. One for younger school-age children (U10s) and one for older children. Under current guidelines over 11s will need to wear masks in church and for Sunday school unless exempt. They will be able to remove masks when Sunday School meets outside. If you’d like any more info please get in touch.
Church Prayer Meeting 26th June
10-11 am, Saturday 26th June. Prayer is the most important thing we do as Christians! Put the date in your diary. More info to follow.
Many peoples will come and say,
‘Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
to the temple of the God of Jacob.
He will teach us his ways,
so that we may walk in his paths.’
The law will go out from Zion,
the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
God’s people had ignored and disobeyed His law and were facing the consequences. But the LORD promises a day will come when God’s kingdom will be established and His people will walk and talk in His ways. Let us ‘walk in the light of the Lord.’
