Remember when we do meet again that there are strict measures to comply with–you will need to notify David Silcox if you wish to attend and at church when you enter, after using the hand-sanitizer you will need to give your contact number in case it is needed should there be a case of coronavirus among those who attended at the same time as you. You will need to wear a face covering at all times in the Church building. Although we will conduct a normal worship service with prayers and hymns and a live sermon, you are requested not to sing the hymns aloud. There will be no refreshments and limited social interaction before and after the service. Please observe the one-way system into and out of the Church. You may bring a Bible for your personal use (the Pew Bibles have been removed) but please do not bring a cushion to sit on.

Although these measures may seem strict, at least we can meet in person and it really makes such a different to be there and worship together rather than virtually.  

Christian Unity is needed even more as the global community faces a crisis such as we have not seen before with the coronavirus causing widespread panic and suffering whether physically, psychologically or economically. Please join us in praying for our countries leaders, for our Church leaders, for the NHS and those looking after people still catching the coronavirus. May God bless you and keep you safe.

Once we begin meeting again in-person, everyone is welcome to join us Worshipping God in our Church Services 11am on Saturdays, but during pandemic restrictions you need to book a place because of restrictions on numbers. The Service generally lasts an hour and a half, followed by a cup of tea and a snack. However, due to the coronavirus, government restrictions still prohibit refreshments, but we can still pray and worship. So we can’t sing out loud, we can sing in our minds, hearts and spirits and learn together from God’s Word. What a blessing to be able to meet together.

We normally meet in St. Peter’s Church, Bushey Mill Lane, Watford:

Worldwide Church of God, Watford
