Here are some important details to help you participate in services at Whetstone Baptist Church safely.
Please book in advance
Our services are usually full, so book in advance on the Eventbrite website until 4.00pm each Friday, and do arrive early. If you would prefer a seat with more space for distancing, please indicate this when you book. Please also book places for creche, Kids' Church and young people's groups.
When you book, or if you sign in on the door, you need to give the names of all the adults coming with you and their contact details.
What to expect
We’ve planned a time together that will be joyful and accessible. It includes worship with a band and singing, prayers and a message from the bible. The children and young people have their own groups for a portion of the service. The service lasts for around 75 minutes.
Your details are checked off when you arrive, and the church keeps the attendance data for 14 days. You can use the NHS track & trace app. We have hand sanitiser available, and stewards wear masks. We keep the doors and window vents open during services, and touch points are sanitised.
Registering for children's and young people's groups
We need to collect registration details for children and young people attending groups. Please download a registration form from our website and email it to us. Paper copies are also available.
Our safeguarding policy is at the bottom of this page.
