Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Important Coronavirus Updates: 17th March 2020.

At Christian Life Centre we care deeply about our family’s health and safety. During this current time it is important that we maintain a safe, hygienic and welcoming environment for anyone who comes through our doors.

We are closely monitoring the latest guidance from the Government website and ensuring that we are taking the right precautions to remain vigilant throughout the developing situation.

Public Gatherings

At present, there is no guidance from the Government, Public Health Office or National Health Service that will affect public gatherings. Therefore, our services will continue to take place.

In-line with Government advice, which is subject to change, we will assess weekly our approach to public gatherings and communicate any further updates to services, departmental teams or events that may have an impact on anyone attending Christian Life Centre. We will keep you up to date on our website, social media and direct communication from members on our database.

Services

Whilst our Sunday and Wednesday services continue to take place we are making a few changes to follow best practice guidelines. All upcoming church events will be monitored on a day by day basis. Below are some of the things that will be different.

Refreshments

Connecting after services over a tea and coffee is greatly valued, and we want to ensure we are doing everything we can to help minimise the risk of any virus spreading. With this in mind we will still be serving complimentary refreshments after our services for those who desire to participate.

Communion

We will shortly be updating you about our communion plans. Communion is an important time in our services as it represents the life of Christ at work in us, however we will be looking at alternative ways of serving the communion during the crisis.

Prayer/Altar Ministers
  • If there is an altar call we will ask you to remain in your seat and raise your hand for any prayer needs. Prayers will then be made for you at your seat.
  • If the ministers are used for prayers/alter services, the ministers will use hand sanitiser before addressing any respondents and will keep a healthy distance and reduce physical contact to a minimum.
  • To avoid the risk of spreading the virus through physical contact, our teams will be welcoming you with big smiles and waves. Be assured, we still love you, but at this time it is important to keep physical contact to a minimum.

Thank you for your continued support, your heart to serve and your consideration for the most vulnerable. It is so important to demonstrate our love for the church family. In every season, we will continue to lift up the name of Jesus with great faith and wisdom.
