This Sunday's Service - 25th July

Colin Strudwick asking the question: Don't all religions lead to God? The main reading is Acts 17:16-34.

Changes to our Covid precautions from 25th July

At Chailey Free Church we will be taking a gradual approach to relaxing our Covid protection measures. We need to take into account both those who feel confident in the government's relaxations, and those who still feel the need to be cautious.

From Sunday July 25th, services inside our building will be the same as before the restrictions were relaxed, but with the following changes:

1. There will no longer be a screen between the preacher and the congregation.

2. Singing is allowed, but only while wearing a mask.

The following precautions will remain in place:

- Chairs will still be in separated groups to maintain social distancing

- Masks still need to be worn inside the building (unless you are exempt)

- You still need to fill in your name on the attendance sheet in the foyer, to help with contact tracing if needed.

- There will still be hand wash available.

- Communion will still be conducted with no sharing of a cup or bread touching other bread.

- The after service cuppa still won't be provided.

We will review the situation towards the end of August and decide then on whether we will further relax our own safety measures.

See here for further details on our Covid risk assessment and actions.

The services will also be recorded and published on YouTube later in the day so that those who are unable to come, can still join in at home.
