Further easing of covid restrictions will take place on 5/9/21. There is no longer a need to pre-book you seats for a church service at ECC, just turn-up!
The wearing of face masks will now be optional, but if you decide not to wear a mask then we recommend you carry one with you just in case you may need it (such as in any crowded areas).
There are plenty of hand sanitizing stations throughout the building and we encourage you to make use of these.
All the toilets are now in use and no longer operate a one-in-one-out system. However, we do ask users to be mindful of others, particularly in any bottle-neck areas, and keep a safe distance from each other where possible.
There is still a one-way system in the entrance to reduce any potential bottle-neck issues. Our friendly stewards will be on hand to welcome you and answer any questions you may have. We simply ask that you make your way swiftly through the foyer to avoid any over-crowding. There is plenty of space in the main hall for you to chat and catch-up with others.
Children will need to check-in at reception. They will then be given a sticker to show that they've been registered, and then they can sit with you in the main hall until it's time for them to go to Kids Church. The groups for Sunday School are as follows:
Bible Explorers (ages 1-4)
God Seekers (ages 4-7)
Truth Chasers (ages 7-11)
Faith Finders (ages 11-16)
We will be having communion during the service, and we provide pre-filled communion cups which you can collect from reception. (Alternatively, if you wish to bring your own communion, you are very welcome to).
We are still encouraging people to give online or through the GIVT app, but if you'd like to give by cash/cheque, there is a collection box on the wall in the main hall (as there won't be an offering taken up during the service yet).
Tea & coffee will be available after the service in the minor hall, on a self-service basis.
