Upcoming Services

Please note although some church services have restarted they will be operating in line with Methodist Church and Government guidance during the coronavirus outbreak to reduce the risk of infection. Also not all services that happened before the pandemic have restarted just yet.
See This Week's Services page for this Sunday's worship.


You will be wondering how Temple is interpreting the Government guidelines for our forthcoming services. The Stewarding team will be looking at this and we will keep you updated as we go, however, for the time being, the advice from the Methodist Church is to continue to exercise caution and care for those more vulnerable than ourselves, and to consider a safe environment for those who may be venturing back to church.

This is how we propose to go forward:

• Continue to offer sanitiser

• Continue with increased ventilation

• No need to book, but maintain Track and Trace lists for the time being

• Face coverings recommended when moving around, singing, or interacting inside the building. They can be removed when seated.

• Singing permitted, but face coverings are recommended by the Methodist Church when singing.

• Some distancing maintained - to this end we will continue to mark out alternate pews as a reminder, but people to space themselves

• Services continue at around 45 minutes

• Offering continues to be through retiring collection

• Current method for distributing Communion to be maintained for August

• No after service refreshments for the time being (to be reviewed for September)

• Cleaning of toilet facilities to be continued by users

Thank you all for your care of one another over past months, and for your continuing consideration. Deborah
