We are busy preparing to re-open our building for services on 2nd August. Things will look different, as we have spaced chairs out in family bubbles and for individuals to maintain social distancing, as required by government guidance.
There are new notices, reminding us of the need to practise social distancing both inside and outside the building and to wash hands and use hand sanitiser regularly.
Despite the restrictions, we are very much looking forward to meeting again in person and services on 2nd August will be at the usual times of 10:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. The morning service will involve Holy Communion and you are asked to bring your own bread/ fruit juice to avoid cross-contamination through handling these items. Because of the potential risks handling refreshments, we won’t be serving drinks after services at present.
We hope to run Sunday services and meetings on Thursdays (at the usual time of 7:30 p.m.) in the building, but will also be livestreaming Sunday services on Facebook live from the GPCC Facebook page to give all who cannot attend in person the opportunity to join with us in services.
On Wednesday12th August there will be a ‘Dearne Churches Together’ prayer meeting at Furlong Road Methodist Church at 10.45 a.m. (also livestreamed from the DCT Facebook Page.) Join us to pray for God’s healing for the world and stay for a picnic (bring your own food and drink!) if you can. All being well, we will meet outdoors and social distancing will be in place, but we can’t wait to actually connect in person after so many months apart!
