Update: 03 MAR 2020

Dear friends,

Here’s a brief update on how we’re responding to the unfolding Coronavirus situation.

We’re continuing to monitor information from the health services as its released, and are staying up to date with the government’s advice.  In the light of the government’s announcement today that anyone who is not unwell should go about “business as usual,” we will still meet together on Wednesday night for the Central Prayer Meeting and on Sunday for our regular gatherings.

We will provide individual cups for sharing the Lord’s Supper at the Central Prayer Meeting, and will continue to have hand sanitizer in our venues. Please do make use of this, and help your children make use of it also.  And let’s allow each other some of the recommended “social distance” – let’s not be offended if others in our church family are more restrained from hugging and shaking hands than usual!

We’d encourage you to keep following the government’s advice on hand-washing as well as what to do if you start to feel unwell, and if you think you might need to self-isolate.

We’re currently investigating how to provide online access to our gatherings for those who aren’t able to attend.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any questions.

Dear friends,

As you will know there is increasing anxiety in the UK, and in fact, around the world, with regard to the spread of Coronavirus/COVID-19.

We have no knowledge of anyone at church having travelled to any affected areas since isolation was introduced on 19 February, or having come into contact with anyone infected or displaying symptoms.  Accordingly, and in adherence to the best available advice from the NHS, it is right and safe for us to continue meeting on Sundays as usual. The NHS is advising that you only need to self-isolate if advised to by the 111 online coronavirus service or a medical professional.

Even though we’re not aware of any particular risk at Dundonald Church, we want to encourage everyone to follow the advice from the NHS (further details available here), primarily washing hands regularly, especially after coughing or sneezing, and before eating. This also helps reduce the risk of various other respiratory infections such as the flu and the common cold.

To help us follow the NHS advice, on Sunday there will be hand sanitizer available at both Wimbledon Chase School and St Andrew’s.  Please make use of it when you enter the building, and repeat as necessary.  Please also continue to wash your hands with soap and water at home, and at work, to minimize the risk of getting sick.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday!
