Sharing God’s Love with our Community


Sunday Services (10.30am)

The next services at Union Street will be inside the church on:

17 October (Geoff Harris)

24 October (Rev Dr Bonni-Belle Pickard)

31 October Local Arrangement

There is now no need to book in advance, but  we will make a list of attendees on the day and keep it for 14 days in case it is needed for track and trace in the event of a case of Covid being reported by a member of that day’s congregation.

  • Entry is via the front door.
  • Hand sanitiser will be available at entrances, and all those attending are asked to use it
  • Chairs will be set out in widely spaced rows, and the congregation will be asked to leave a chair-space between their bubble / family group and others in the same row.
  • Members of the congregation will take responsibility for social distancing according to what they are comfortable with – please respect others who prefer not to shake hands, stand close etc. And please don’t hesitate to ask others to give you space.
  • Masks are not compulsory, but we respect that some members will wish to wear them
  • Those who prefer not to wear masks and / or wish to sing are asked to sit towards the front of the church
  • Those who wish to wear masks are advised to take seats nearer to the back of the church.
  • Communion will be distributed by the minister and Communion Stewards along the rows, to keep movement of the congregation to a minimum.
  • Bread will be served on cocktail sticks to minimise handling as it is distributed
  • Cocktail sticks and glasses will be collected in baskets by the stewards.
  • We encourage members of the congregation to chat outside the church after the service rather than inside to minimise indoor contact

Online Sunday Services will continue at 10.30am – join the online service by going to the North Kent Methodist Circuit Website or Facebook page to find the live stream (opens 15 minutes before the service).
