BEING THE CHURCH in the time of COVID-19

From Sunday, September 6, we will offer both in-person worship in the sanctuary and online pre-recorded worship on YouTube. Online worship will still debut at 11:00 a.m. on Sundays and be available anytime after. The sermon, prayers and liturgy will be the same for both services. Each service will feature music from a soloist, with the songs from the live service recorded for the YouTube version the following week.

If you are ready to return to in-person worship with us, we look forward to seeing you! However, we must limit our numbers in order to maintain social distancing, so pre-registration is required. Email info@amchurch.co.uk for more details.

Our in-person worship will be a very different experience than what we left behind. Face coverings, temperature checks and handwashing will be required, and no one who is symptomatic, quarantining or self-isolating will be allowed to attend. We will not be able to sing together or socialise before or after worship in the sanctuary. Children of all ages will need to stay in the pew with their household. Even with these restrictions, we believe that gathering for worship in person is important for those who are ready to do so, and we can create a meaningful sacred time while maintaining best practices to be COVID-Secure.


Below is a summary of ongoing activities, and an update is distributed via our weekly email. You can subscribe to receive these messages here.
