Coronavirus and the Church
Our services will continue 'on line', being aired on Utube. Just search for Carleton Rode Baptist Church in the Utube app.
After 16th August pronoucements our worship at the chapel began a slow progress towards a more 'normal' service. As I write this on 6th September there are still a few precautions being taken, such as, continuing with open windows and doors to improve air flow, sanitizing stations at the entrances and encouraging social distancing and the wearing of face masks, though these are not compulsory. Singing is now allowed, praise the Lord. Our numbers on a Sunday have been slowly increasing as our congregation feel its safe to come back and we thank God for that.
