IN-PERSON SERVICES

RIVERSIDE HOUSE

We are gathering together for small in-person services at 10:30am each Sunday at our Community Hub: Riverside House. 

Our in-person gatherings are going to look and feel quite different under the current Covid-19 restrictions.  However, in a fully safe & Covid-19 secure way, these gatherings are a wonderful opportunity to meet and celebrate the hope we have in Jesus together. We can still deepen our relationship with God in even the most challenging of times, and this is our opportunity so to do.

If you wish to attend these in-person services you will be very welcome. Before you attend please remember that you must first sign-up (for 'Track & Trace' purposes).

Community Hub: Riverside House
21 Alcester Road, Moseley, Birmingham, B13 8AR


COVID-19 SAFETY INFOMRATION

Please be assured that we will do all we can to be Covid-safe, but we all need to continue to re-double our own personal efforts to be safe:

# Before attending you must sign-up online for 'track and trace' purposes. 
# Please do not attend if you feel unwell or have any Coronavirus symptoms at all.
# Everyone over the age of 11 must wear a mask at all times, unless they have a recognised reason not to (please simply let the steward know if that is the case).
# Please arrive via the REAR entrance of Riverside House (via the side car cark off Augusta Road). Please do not try to enter via the front door.
#Please arrive promptly to allow enough time for you to check-in. 
# When you checked-in please go straight to your seat do not socialise with anyone outside your bubble and keep 2 metres distance at all times.
# Children attending must stay with their responsible adult at all times.
# Note: We are unfortunately still able to sing together under the current guidelines. 
# At the end of the service please continue to not gather to socialise with anyone outside your bubble.

What Happens?

Our in-person gatherings are informal, during which we spend some time worshipping together, hearing a Bible-based talk that inspires and encourages and during the service there will be an opportunity for prayer.

Our in-person services last for approx. 45 minuets. 

Children & Young People

Children and Young people are the church of today as well as the church of tomorrow.
