We now have a page for Coronavirus and information about church activities that have been affected by the need for people to isolate themselves socially. It is on several of the drop down menus and currently consists of the same information wherever you view it (technically it is a reusable block, which sort of does what it says on the tin!)
Please consider whether you are in a high risk group for Coronavirus such as diabetes, heart disease, asthma, COPD or anything that can impair your immune response such as radio or chemo therapy. If in doubt stay at home and watch an online church service instead.
Message from the Sanderstead Methodist Leadership Team:
Due to the most recent government advice, we are suspending all activities in the Circuit for the time being.
- All church services are suspended at Sanderstead Methodist and all UK Methodist Churches.
All church activities are suspended.
- Update 4 June from Methodist UK website: We continue to heed the Government guidelines for churches and to consider carefully the needs and risks involved in reopening places of worship. At this point, we do not anticipate making any changes to our own guidance until after the Conference which takes place between June 25 and July 2. See latest blog post here Methodist Churches staying closed for the moment
- Update 6 July from Superintendent Faith Nyota: Each Church’s Leadership Team (aka Stewards) will be meeting to consider reopening our churches subject to passing a detailed risk assessment. Services are likely to be shorter and a number of social distancing and other safety and cleaning rues and procedures.
We will revise in the light of Central Methodist updates on the virus.
We earlier posted the cancellation of all meetings on church premises.
