Update – In Person Services & Pastoral Care

From this week onwards, we will be holding some of our services in person (which will be ticketed). We will continue to live stream our services (9am, 10:30am, 6pm each Sunday) to our YouTube channel too so you can watch them online if you aren’t quite ready to come back to the building. 

Our pastoral team are in touch with many members of our church family, and if you’d appreciate someone to talk to or pray with, we’d love to hear from you. There are lots of other exciting things happening so do check out the rest of our website and get in touch with the office for details.

As ever, we’re keeping these arrangements under regular review, so do check back here for updates.

Why are we ticketing for services?

To help us maintain a safe capacity and social distancing in line with government guidance, we’re asking that you register your interest for a ticket. Please do not come to church without a confirmed ticket. We realise this may seem strange, but it’s really important that we don’t have too many people in the building! We felt this was the best way to ensure that we are keeping everyone safe at this time. We will of course be keeping some seats free for newcomers, who won’t already be signed up for our emails. Look out for ticket information for each week’s services which will be sent out weekly via email on a Monday morning. If you would like to receive these emails, please contact office@st-saviours.org.uk.

Keeping our services safe

We are working hard to make sure that our services can run safely. We’re aware that some of you can’t wait to get back to church and others will choose to continue watching from home for the time being, which is why we will continue to run our live stream services for the foreseeable future. We have put together a video outlining the guidelines which we all need follow to help keep us safe as we return to public worship. Click here to watch the video. 

 

The important points are:

Before you come:
  • You need to register using our ticketing system, which is in place to maintain safe capacity and social distancing (2m) between households/bubbles
    • Details will be emailed at 9am each Monday morning
  • Don’t arrive too early! You will need to sit down as soon as you arrive
  • Please bring with you:
    • A face covering (unless you’re medically exempt) – this needs to cover your nose and mouth
    • Some water to drink (we won’t be serving any refreshments)
    • Some hand sanitiser
    • Your own bible
  • Don’t come if:
    • You have been advised by a medical professional not to
    • You are isolating due to recently travelling abroad
    • You have a new, persistent cough or any other flu-like symptoms
    • You have recently lost your sense of smell or taste
    • You have recently been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19
    • You are awaiting COVID-19 test results (unless this is a routine test carried out by your workplace)
Whilst you’re at church, please:
  • Find a set of seats which suit the number in your household/bubble
  • Use the one-way system (entrance through the big church building doors on Woodbridge Road)
  • Use hand sanitiser on arrival
  • Wear your face masks at all times (unless medically exempt, or leading the service, preaching, reading, leading worship etc)
  • Keep using hand sanitiser, which is offered throughout the church building
  • Observe and abide by the regularly updated signage displayed in toilets and entrances, which will remind you to wash your hands and observe the one-way system
  • Don’t move any furniture (grab a staff member if you need help!)
  • Don’t sing! Unfortunately, no congregational singing or responses are permitted
  • Follow any further instructions from staff or host team, who will also note your attendance for our track and trace records (which are kept for 21 days in line with our privacy policy). For newcomers, we also now have a QR code, which you scan in the NHS Test and Trace app.

Additionally:

  • No refreshments will be served (we hope to change this when the rules allow!)
  • Communion will be offered ‘in one kind’ (wafer only) – we will celebrate communion at our services in line with our usual monthly pattern.
  • The music may be a bit quieter than normal in line with COVID-19 restrictions and to dissuade the raising of voices
After you’ve left:
  • Please leave promptly using the one-way system (exit through the white church centre doors on Woodbridge Road), not gathering in groups.
  • If you develop symptoms in the days after your visit, please let the church office know so we can inform others via our track and trace system
  • Don’t forget to book to come to a future service!
