Friday 24th December

11:30pm

Please join us for a reflective midnight communion service this Christmas Eve

Below explains a little of how we'll run things and what to expect.

No booking required

  • There is no need to book in beforehand, just turn up.

  • We do provide a venue-check-in QR code for those who would like to use it

Ventilation

  • We're aware that good ventilation helps minimise the spread of COVID-19. We will keep doors open where possible.

  • We have also added a mechanical air extraction unit to aid ventilation

Arriving & Leaving

  • On arrival there will be hand sanitiser available

  • Stewards will guide people to a pew and we ask people to stay seated as much as possible and chat to those around them if they would like

  • At the end of the service we ask everyone to remain seated for a moment to enable those in the socially distanced seats to leave first if they would like.

Seating

  • The central block of pews will be free to be used with no social distancing required

  • Under the balcony on the sides, we’ll have every other pew roped off to provide some social distanced seating. These are available on a first-come first-served basis.

  • Extra seating in the balcony is available too.

Taking Communion

  • To help us be safe and sensible, we will all remain in our pews for sharing communion together

  • At this point in the meeting, the servers will bring the bread and wine to you in your pew

  • The bread and wine will be in individual portions (there is no sharing of a common cup)

Face coverings

  • The government is encouraging people to continue to wear face coverings in crowded indoor spaces such as public transport

  • We believe that at this point people are free to make their own decisions. Some will wear them and some won't - we just ask that we all respect other people's decisions. 

Singing

  • We will sing together some of the wonderful Christmas carols
