Sunday Worship

**COVID-19 UPDATE : Services restarting in the building 20th September 2020**

We are excited to announce that from Sunday 20th September 2020 we will be resuming Sunday morning services in our building.  The service will be at the usual time of 10.30am, but will only last for about 45 minutes at the moment.  We have taken into account the latest government guidance for places of worship, as well as guidlines providing by the Baptist Union.  Here are some of the things that will be a little different:

  • all adults and children over 11 years of age will be required to wear a face covering whilst inside the building, unless they fall under one of the exemptions;
  • children's groups will be running in the Youth Centre for 3-11 year olds.  For the moment children should be dropped at their groups before the main service starts and collected at the end.  Find out more here;
  • there will be no congregational singing in the service until this is permitted under government guidelines;
  • social distancing will be maintained inside the building and everyone will be asked to use hand sanitiser when they enter;
  • we will be taking details for the NHS Track & Trace system;
  • no refreshments can be provided at the moment and attendees are encouraged to leave the building promptly after the service finishes;
  • please do not enter the building if you have any of the main known symptoms of COVID-19 (a temperature, a new persistent cough or a loss of, or change to, your sense of smell or taste. 

In the meantime, we still have lots going on online, including....

  • 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.  These will still continue once services resume in the building;
  • 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; and
  • Alpha online via zoom from Thursday 17th September.

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.
