SUNDAY SERVICES BOOKING

Sunday Services Booking

 

It’s good to be able to gather together in person again! In order to comply with COVID-19 government guidelines and recommendations of the Baptist Union, we currently have a booking application system for attendance at Sunday Morning Services.

Places will be allocated in 2 month blocks, so please bear with us as we seek to do this fairly.

If you would like to attend any of our Sunday services at 10.30am in September/October, please apply by email at this address: cometobhbc@gmail.com giving the names of your household group attendees, the dates that you are available and the number of services you would ideally wish to attend. Please be aware that allocation of seating depends on demand and capacity is greatly reduced due to social distancing measures.

We are required to keep a record of those attending services for Government Track and Trace so if you have not previously given us consent to hold your details, please complete the consent form here. This is a requirement of booking and your application will not be considered complete until this is done. You can view our privacy statement here.

You will receive an automated reply to confirm that your application has reached us and then emails will follow in due course regarding each individual service which you have been allocated.

Applications are reviewed on a weekly basis. The weekly deadline for submitting an application is Wednesday at 10am.

Seating allocation depends on demand and cannot be guaranteed, but your application will be more likely to be successful if you give us a range of possible dates well in advance.

Thank you for your patience as we try to ensure that those who wish to attend church have an opportunity to do so. All services will be streamed online on our YouTube channel for all those not gathering in person. These will be live from the church sanctuary from Sunday 13 September, so those not able to attend will be able to access our live service in the comfort of their own homes.

We look forward to seeing you at one of our services soon!
