Coronavirus Pandemic - updated 1 Sep 2021
After the announcement regarding restrictions being eased for Places of Worship in England, this is an update on how we are proceeding at Bromham Baptist Church.
We realise that our Church family includes people who feel rather bullish and dislike the restrictions right through to those who are still feeling very nervous and want some precautions to remain in place.
With that in mind we have developed a plan that hopefully gives everyone the opportunity to feel comfortable and confident to connect with the services.
We would firstly remind everyone that if you are suffering from any of the identified Covid-19 symptoms or have been asked to isolate by NHS Track and Trace you should not attend church. This restriction will also apply if others in your household are suffering from Covid-19 symptoms.
Congregational singing will take place throughout the services, and people will be free to pray out and use spiritual gifts from their seat using a wireless microphone, or people can pray at the front using the microphone on a stand. Using the microphones has two advantages. Firstly, it means that people can speak at a normal volume and, secondly, it enables those who rely on the hearing loop or are watching the livestream to hear what is being said.
Good ventilation will be maintained. Hand sanitising will continue to be encouraged but face coverings will now be optional. We shall still lay the chairs out in socially distanced groups.
For the present time we will livestream the morning services from 11am which will thereby allow for greater freedom in prayer and the exercising of spiritual gifts in worship prior to the public broadcast.
After-service refreshments will be served.
The Baptist Union have updated their Covid guidance and include this helpful comment:
'We appeal to everyone involved to be kind to each other, to listen well, to appreciate the pressure leaders are under, and to compromise accordingly. This is a very vulnerable time for churches and we ask you to recall the exhortation in Ephesians 4 to “be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.”'
