We acknowledge the priority of meeting together in-person, worshipping with singing, and sharing life, fellowship and mission, and are committed to provide this opportunity, in all it's various forms, at ABC going forwards now that all restrictions have been lifted.
The clear sense from UK Government and Baptist Union guidance for churches, is that we now need to get on and learn to live with Covid in the background. We have said from the start that we will walk this road with both faith and wisdom, and this should continue to be our guiding principle.
One thing we have learned through this experience is that having a good online presence is essential if we are to remain relevant and engaged in our generation. This period has enabled us to launch into this well, and we should keep the ground we have gained. We aim to do this through a 'Sunday Service Highlights' video, and other video content from time to time, rather than a Livestream broadcast.
The measures set out in our Covid Charter will enable us to gather in-person whilst minimising risks whilst we adjust to the 'new normal' together! Please read before attending services and events at ABC.

- Use of a face covering is not required, but you may wish to wear a face covering if you prefer.
- Please enter and exit through the front doors only (unless in an emergency), hand sanitizer is available if desired.
- We will continue to be mindful of each other and respect any personal boundaries that people feel they would like to maintain.
- We will provide plenty of seating and the building will be well ventilated. We aim to provide an electronic air purifyer in the near future.
- For those that can't attend in person, and in order to maintain a quality online presence, we will provide a 'Sunday Service Highlights' video following the morning service.
