Sunday Worship

COVID-19 Update: 1st Dec 2020

**Take a look at our new Christmas page for news on all our Christmas events**

Following the latest government announcement we will re-open for services in our building from Sunday 6th December 2020.  Services will continue to look a little different whilst there are additional restrictions in place, but we are really excited about the opportunity to gather together again to worship, learn and encourage one another.  A full risk assessment has been undertaken and our services comply with the government guidance for the safe use of places of worship.  

Here are a few things to bear in mind before you come along for a service:

  • Services will start at 10.30am and will be kept to under 1 hour;
  • Face masks must be worn by everyone over the age of 11 unless you fall under one of the exemptions for mask wearing;
  • We suggest you try to arrive at church 10-15 minutes before the service starts to allow time to provide details for track and trace, sanitise your hands and enter the building whilst maintaining social distance from others;
  • A steward will guide you to your seat and chairs will be set out with plenty of space between them to allow for social distancing;
  • No tea, coffee or refreshments will be served in the building at the moment;
  • Our children's groups will be running each week in the youth centre and the children will remain in their groups for the whole of the service at the moment.  Please click here for more information.

As well as live services, there are also lots of ways to engage with church life online:

  • Sunday services on our YouTube channel, uploaded by 8am every Sunday and available to watch anytime and via audio and on Phil’s blog. The services all include worship, HBC Kids talk, prayers and a talk;
  • The women's fellowship, worship nights and Monday night prayer meetings via zoom; 
  • Life Groups on zoom;
  • Daily Bible readings and prayers via WhatsApp and Phil's blog.

Dates coming up...

  • Sunday morning worship with kids groups 6th, 13th & 20th Dec at 10.30am
  • Christmas morning family worship 25th Dec at 10am
  • NO Service on Sunday 27th Dec

Please get in touch if you would like more information on any of these or follow us on Facebook or Twitter for regular updates.

Please be assured of our love and prayers for all of you.  In the meantime please feel free to contact us via phone on 01932 701139 or email phil@hershambaptist.org.uk / heather@hershambaptist.org.uk if you need any practical or spiritual support.
