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.
