Welcome to All Saints' Church, Gosforth
Welcome, and thank you for visiting All Saints' website. We hope that our website highlights the wide variety of worship, fellowship and service opportunities available. Please feel free to read more about our church on this site, or come in for a visit.
Church opening for worship
We are delighted to be able to return to church for public worship on Sunday 12th July at 9.30am.
This is not however, a return to normal - there are measures in place to ensure your utmost safety, and these will impact on what we are able to do together. As stated in last week’s pew sheet the service will not be Holy Communion but Morning Prayer.
All are welcome, whether you are a regular member of the congregation or not. Currently we are able to have 45 people in the congregation. This is so that we can maintain the two metre distancing advice. However, for members of the same household or those in a bubble who do not need to social distance from each other, the number of places can be extended to accommodate a maximum occupancy of 70. Families are most welcome, but regrettably, as yet, we are unable to offer any special provision for children.
You will find specific measures are in place, including sanitiser stations, social distancing, a one-way system, and also a special service sheet. For the time being, there can be no singing - so sadly, no choir or hymns. We won’t be able to sit in our ‘normal’ seats. All are welcome but we are asked to remind you that the risks are dependent on your own situation. It is important that those who are shielding, or who are in a vulnerable group, should feel under no pressure to attend; they should carefully consider their own situation. Online worship will be available again this Sunday.
Nothing should be too taxing or complicated, and churchwardens/stewards will be happy to welcome and guide you. Please be assured that everything has been thought through carefully. (If you have any questions or concerns whatsoever about what to expect, please don’t hesitate to be in touch). Please see the tab above labelled 'advice to attendees'. You can view our COVID-19 Risk Assessment here.
We very much look forward to welcoming you.
