We had been preparing to re-open the church in November following rigorous risk assessments until the second Lockdown happened! Finally, we were able to return to our weekly morning service in chapel this morning. It was the first chance that our new minister, Robin Fox, was able to meet a lot of the congregation in person, ensuring face masks and social distancing were adhered to! Despite having to sit apart from friends and familiar faces, there were welcoming waves and warm greetings from everyone. It was a joy to be back in the familiar surroundings and we look forward to many more of these services in the 'new normal'.
