Corona Virus Update
Greetings KCC family
As has been previously announced we are slowly returning to in-person services from 27th September, starting with a time of gathering together of the fellowship to worship and then open to the wider community from the 4th Oct
Church will look different to what we were used to and there are still areas that we have to bear in mind when we meet so that we can honour our government, each other and our wider community as seen in the bible in Romans 13 and 1 Peter 2,
Below we have attached the churches risk assessment so you can see in detail all the things we will be doing to help keep us Covid secure, but there are a few details that you need to be aware of before you join us in person.
1, Please book in:- as we only have so much room including social distancing we need you to book so that we know how many people are coming for setting up purposes. You can book for a group of up to 6 (in line with the governments rule of 6) or if you and your support bubble is larger than 6 that is also allowed (please state when booking) To book please visit this link (also below) bookings will close on the Friday evening so we have time to set up etc.
2, Face masks/coverings:- it is a requirement by the government for face masks to be worn indoors in places of worship. Therefore unless you are exempt, we will be asking all attendees to wear a mask when entering the building and if you do not have one, one will be provided for your use. If you do have an exemption please mention it when booking in so that information can be passed to the welcome team.
3, Hand sanitisers:- Hand sanitisers will be in plentiful supply around the building and we encourage you all to use them on entrance and exit of the building.
4, Times:- due to social distancing and one way systems we ask that you arrive early so you can be seated in plenty of time. Please be aware that if you are late arriving you may not be able to enter the service.
5, Symptomatic:- Please do not attend the services if you may have one of the main symptoms of covid 19, or have been in contact with someone displaying these symptoms in the past 14 days. To confirm these are a high temperature, a new continuous cough or a loss of smell or taste. You will be asked to confirm that you do not have any of these symptoms upon arrival.
We know that some of you may feel that due to higher levels of risk, shielding, self isolating or other concerns you may decide not to attend in person and that's perfectly understandable. Please note we will continue to post videos on the Facebook group and within SoundCloud as we have been doing over the months we've been in lockdown.
We also recognise that some of you may feel unwilling to follow the guideline restrictions. If that is the case we respectfully ask that you don’t attend the gatherings.
To confirm we recognise that we have a biblical responsibility to care for the vulnerable and to love our neighbours as ourselves, which is why we have put in place the measures that we have, to enable us to start to open up the building once more.
Finally, please be aware that as things change how we gather and worship will also evolve and change. We will endeavour to keep you all informed as we move forward. Please continue to pray for the leadership as we navigate our way forward.
if you have any further queries or questions then please contact one of the elders
