Returning of Onsite Church
You do not need to book in advance anymore. Just come!
The government has requirements about the number of people we can have in the building, and by our calculation we can have 70 people / family groups at church. The good news is that we think that most Sundays we will be able to fit everyone in the main building, but if we have extra people, we can re-purpose the church hall as an overflow room, and people can participate in the service from there via livestream.
As per government directive we will be collecting the address, email, and phone numbers of people who come to church on a given Sunday.
At this time we are not planning to run Sunday School or have tea/Coffee after church, as the logistics of making those things happen are still difficult.
Please keep in mind that the way to love your neighbour at church right now is to NOT shake hands and exchange hugs. We look forward to the day when we can do these things again, but that day has not yet come. Additionally, if you choose to come to church, we encourage you to head home shortly after the service ends rather than staying for some extra fellowship afterwards. Instead of Having fellowship with others after the service at the church property, it’d be great if you chose to invite someone from your church family over for a cuppa (or lunch!) at your own home after the service. This way we can still enjoy seeing each other while staying in significantly smaller “contact bubbles.”
We will maintain access to our services via livestream at https://mansfieldcrc.online.church/ for the foreseeable future, so you can still join us from home if you feel it best to stay home for some other reason.
