Returning to Mack

Mack will be re-opening for Sunday Morning services from Sunday 4th April 2021. We’re looking forward to welcoming you back to church in person, but want to make sure we are doing everything we can do to make sure it is safe for everyone. This means we’ll be following the below precautions:

  1. Those wishing to attend will need a confirmed booking of their place. There will
    be very limited space available. You can request to book a space online.
  2. You MUST NOT attend if you are displaying any Covid symptoms, or if you have
    been in contact with someone who has Coronavirus or who is displaying
    symptoms / awaiting a test or a test result.
  3. Entry will only be via the side door (with ramp) on Mackintosh Place. Please
    queue by the railings until you are instructed to enter. Please do not arrive
    before 10.50am.
  4. A mask must be worn at all times while in the building. This is a condition of
    entry.
  5. On entering Mack the person’s name and contact details will be confirmed.
  6. Each person must sanitise his or her hands with the gel provided at the
    entrance.
  7. Each person will be shown to his or her seat (seats in the case of a family
    group). Changing of seats is not possible.
  8. People will not be able to talk / chat in the normal way – masks must be worn
    and 2 metre distancing must be maintained.
  9. There will not be the usual heating.
  10. There will be no singing.
  11. The service will last approximately 40 minutes. At the end of the service
    everyone must remain in his or her seat until told when to leave.
  12. Exit will be via the main doors onto Mackintosh Place. Hands must again be
    sanitised at the point of exit (sanitisers provided).
  13. On leaving the building everyone is strongly advised to head for home very
    quickly i.e. no group conversations in Mackintosh Place.
  14. During the service the doors and windows will be kept open to allow fresh air to
    circulate.
  15. It will not be possible to offer lifts to and from the service.


These requirements are in line with, and adhere to, current Government guidelines for
churches. We recognise that these restrictions are severe but it is vitally important
that we all recognise that ‘normal’ church is still some way off.
