Corona-virus Updates-
Thursday 13 May 2021

At today's church meeting it was agreed that we will work towards opening up the church building from Sunday 30 May 2021. 'Hybrid' Zoom services will commence from that date. Other church activities will open up after appropriate risk assessments have been completed and as corona-virus guidelines allow.

Saturday 9 January 2021

The second lock-down thwarted our plans to re-open. Although the current rules do permit gathering in church, the CLT have decide not to press ahead with plans to re-open for the time being.

Friday 18 September 2020

The CLT intends to gradually open up the church for Sunday morning services. Initially, a small Worship Team and technical staff will join the preacher so that sung worship will sound better for those joining via Zoom in their homes. (Singing is not permitted by the congregation.) Over time, additional worshippers will be invited to join the congregation.

Wednesday 24 June 2020

From 4 July the 2m distancing guidance will change in England.

Yesterday, the Prime Minister announced: "...I am delighted that places of worship will be able to reopen for prayer and services – including weddings with a maximum of 30 people, all subject to social distancing."

The CLT will discuss at their next meeting on Tuesday 7 July what the implications and opportunities are for Acomb Baptist Church as a result of this announcement and any guidance published as a consequence.

Wednesday 18 March 2020

Following advice from the UK Government and the Baptist Denomination, Acomb Baptist Church has made the sad decision to suspend all gatherings until further notice.
