Latest Covid update
With the new lockdown arrangements across the country, and following advice from the Baptist Union, our Trustees have met and we have agreed that the safest way for our congregation to worship remains online. We will continue to monitor the guidance and advice from both Government and the Baptist Union. However, until we are back to the level of restrictions that have applied in Tier 2, we are unlikely to return to worshipping in the church building.
We recognise that this will cause disappointment for some. We are all desperate to return to in-person worship and to do so swiftly. However, with the new Covid strain, and an ever-changing environment, we believe the safety of the worshipping public is of paramount importance. The trustees continue to review this regularly and we will update you again as we are able.
In the meantime, we continue to worship each Sunday at 10.30am on Zoom. Our Meeting ID is 571 871 793. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for the passcode. Previous services can be watched on our ‘Listen again’ section of our website - www.heatonbaptist.org.
We will continue to provide resources and support for our Junior Church and Youth groups as we are able. Please get in touch if you would like more information on this provision.
We give thanks for all who are working tirelessly to protect, care for and vaccinate the public, and we continue to pray for all those who are suffering, recovering or grieving at this time. And we choose to put our trust in our Almighty God, who loves us and who understands the future.
With grateful thanks,
Rev. Dave Tubby
Senior Minister, Heaton Baptist Church
