Do remember the priority of washing your hands thoroughly with soap or using a hand sanitizer. Social distancing is currently set at 1.50m. At All Saints during the services we are practicing 2.00m. If you are feeling unwell, the recommendation is to stay at home.
When You Arrive
When you arrive at the Church carpark you will be welcomed at the main door. Please enter through the main doors only and not through the Church Hall.
The Welcomer may ask you to wait a moment to ensure social distancing is maintained as we enter the church. It would help us if you could arrive at least 10 minutes before the beginning of the service to avoid a last minute rush.
When you enter the porch, you will find another friendly Welcomer who will offer you hand sanitiser, ask you to confirm your registration and take your contact details. We will hold these details for 14 days before destroying them.
Once inside you will be taken to your pew. Yes, you will have assigned seats!! You will notice that every second pew has been roped off, and the cushions and kneelers removed. This is to ensure social distancing and to help with the effective cleaning of the church.
The service will last around 45 minutes. We hope there will be music but at this moment there will be no singing. At the end of the service, for those who are able, we would ask you to leave the church by the side door. Federal Guidelines encourage a One-Way System to be in effect. We fully appreciate that exiting the church through the side door requires navigating two sets of steps. If this is not possible for you, please do not worry. Coffee time is sadly not possible at the moment.
Some last thoughts
Children’s and Youth programmes are taking a break now until September. The sharing of Holy Communion is sadly still not possible. Booking is necessary for the All Saints’ “in person” service by noon the Saturday before. Please contact us here for more information or phone Clive, the Chaplain, on +41 78 710 18 60.
Online service resources will be available throughout August. The Online Worship Service Video for this Sunday 16th August can be found here.
