CORONAVIRUS

Blackheath Baptist Church is a COVID SAFE place of worship. Places on Sunday are limited. To attend our 10am service on Sunday, we encourage you to make a booking. If you can't make it on Sunday, we encourage you to watch online! Services are live from 10am and available any time afterwards.

 

The church operates a meals ministry. Home-cooked meals are donated by members of the congregation every week and available for anyone in need. Don't be afraid to ask!

If you are coming on Sunday, please be aware of the following restrictions:

1.

We are asking that people who are booked in to attend the service on any particular Sunday arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the commencement of the service.

3.

There will be a table set up in the main part of the church building. A COVID Marshall will be on hand to guide you through the process of entering the church. There will also be an assistant marshall.

5.

Proceed to the next table, where the assistant marshall will show you where to sign in (at present, pen and paper).

7.

ON THE FIRST SUNDAY OF THE MONTH ONLY. We will be taking Communion together. On this day, you will be asked to sanitise your hands again, and then collect an individual Communion pack for each person in your party. This consists of one  wafer and one small cup of juice. When you need to access the elements, first of all, simply remove the plastic sleeve to access the wafer. After this, remove the foil cover to access the juice. The used containers etc won't be collected. Please dispose of them in the foyer as you exit.

9.

Once the service starts, the service leader will stipulate that whilst the band will be singing, the congregation should not sing.

2.

As you arrive at the church, please observe the 1.5m spacings marked with an "X" on the floor. Hand sanitiser is provided for your use as you enter the foyer.

6.

Disposable face masks will be available to those who require them. We are asking people to bring their own face masks. 

8.

You are then able to find a seat. Please sit on a chair provided. It is recommended that families sit in the gallery. If you have come in as a couple, feel free to put two seats together, but please don't grab another seat from the stacks of chairs.

10.

Upon completion of the service, morning tea will not be served. We are asking people not to congregate in groups outside. We'd like to encourage people to continue fellowship at a local cafe.
