Coronavirus and the Church
It is with much sadness that we have taken the decision to close the Chapel for all activities for the months of January and February This decision was taken because although under the rules, churches can open, we felt that we should err on the side of safety and not expose our congregation to the risk of catching this virus which has now become a bigger threat with the appearance of the new variant.
Our services will continue 'on line', being aired on Utube. Just search for Carleton Rode Baptist Church in the Utube app.
So there will be no 'live services' in the Chapel. Also the Coffee shop will be closed and that means no Takeaways either. We are very sorry for the disappointment this will inevitably cause. We can assure you that we will keep the situation under constant review. But not exposing our congregation to unnecessary risk must be the main consideration.
