Dear Church Family
It seems a long time since we had to close our church buildings and alter how we functioned as God’s people in Old Felixstowe. In this time many things have happened and we have had to adapt and learn new skills. Who would have thought that many of us would attend worship with a cup of coffee in our hand, slippers on and then sung in front of our computers – or for those of us who have returned to the building we would not be singing and have to wear masks?
We are currently working through the extensive government guidelines to ensure that when we return to worship in the church buildings we are able to do so in a way that reduces risk. This will require some adjustments in how we operate and time is needed to implement the changes.
On 12th July we will return to our church building for public worship. We plan to do this in a staged and sustainable way, seeking to reduce risk as much as possible whilst complying with government regulations. At present the national church guidelines recommend that if you are vulnerable for any reason you should avoid public gatherings of more than six people.
Having received on Wednesday official notification that we may open our buildings for private prayer, much work has been going on to ensure we can do this in a safe and sustainable way.
We are not open this week but are looking to be in a place where we can be open for a limited period in the next week or so.
