UPDATE 7th April 2021
We continue to stream our services and prayer times (see calendar) on https://www.facebook.com/churchontheroundabout/live (no Facebook account needed). The good thing that has come from this, is that so many more people have been able to take part.
As restrictions lift and the weather improves, we will be holding some outdoor services, which will be advertised on our website “upcoming events” which you can attend if you pre-book through firstname.lastname@example.org
Foodbank remains open on a Wednesday and Friday morning, 10am-1pm.
As restrictions lift, from Weds 14th April, we will be serving coffees outside.
Please don’t feel bad about using it. We see it as the whole community working together to help each other. We put in when when can and we take out when we need to.
If you are having trouble getting a voucher, please call Tony on 07584667879
Birthday parties & community use of the building:
Sadly birthday parties or other similar community activities currently cannot be currently be considered, as the risk is too high. This will be reviewed as the Lockdown begins to lift, but realistically it will probably be Autumn before it can be safely done.
Please note, bookings will not be taken until we know when we will re-open
