The service itself will be short with just two pieces of music beginning and end to listen to.
We hope that once people have got used to the ‘new normal’ then it will become a relaxed enjoyable experience.
Please remember to bring your mask and wear warmer clothes as the weather gets cooler as while heating can be on in church, we will still be needing to keep it well ventilated to comply with regulations.
There is a one way system in place in the church, in through the main aisle and out by the side aisles, which means that if you want to sit beside an exit aisle you need to go up to the front, and back down to your seat, however the advantage is that you have less far to go to exit at the end of the service! Please follow the direction of the steward on duty.
In order to support the NHS Test and Trace programme, we are taking contact details (name/email address/telephone number) for all visitors, as well as recording times entering and leaving Bishop Auckland Methodist Church. In line with guidance issued by the Department for Health and Social Care, we will keep your details safely and in compliance with GDPR legislation for 21 days before securely disposing of or deleting them. We will only share your details with NHS Test and Trace, if asked, in the event that it is needed to help stop the spread of coronavirus. We will not use your details for any other purposes or pass them on to anyone else.
If you can agree to this, please continue to fill in your details. Please tell us first of all how many people from your household pod are attending before going on to fill in the registration details. If there is more than yourself in your household pod attending, please fill in their names at the bottom of the registration details.
Thank you for your understanding.
