Covid-19 Re-opening of places of worship
We are pleased and encouraged that the Prime Minister has given permission for places of worship to reopen. We are aware that some of you will be very enthusiastic to get back to gathered worship as soon as possible, and that some may be much more cautious about returning.
As a leadership, while we too are eager for gathered church to resume, we will not commit to reopening CPBC until we are confident that we have all the safety measures in place to make the building, and the experience of worship and fellowship, as safe as possible. This means that significant changes will need to be carefully considered and implemented before we feel we can safely start, and we are awaiting further guidance from the Baptist Union regarding this.
This means that while we do not anticipate being ready to open by Sunday 5th July, we will now be actively looking at when and how reopening will be feasible, and as soon as we have more definite information, we will let you know.
In the meantime, please do keep safe and well.
