Church Services Need to Know

Here are some important details to help you participate in services at Whetstone Baptist Church safely.


You must book

Places are limited and need to be booked in advance.


Please email the office giving:

Names of all the people coming with you (can be one household or support bubble of any number) and contact numbers.

We will email you to let you know if you have secured your place(s).


What to expect
Each week a minister gives a short version of the message from our Sunday video service. We’ve planned a time together that will be joyful and family-friendly. The service lasts for 45 minutes.


We are COVID-secure with social distancing. 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 and wipes for your seats.

Dos and don’ts
Do let the office know if you decide not to come, or if you want to add to your party – 0116 286 3145 until Thursday 1pm, or by text over the weekend: 07469 703 854.
Don’t come if you feel unwell.
Do arrive in good time, so we don't get a queue at the door.

Over 11’s must bring face coverings (if you are able to wear one).
Do bring something for the offering if you wish to, cash or envelope scheme – we will collect it safely.
Do bring a bible if you want to follow the reading.
Do come into church via the front door. There is a one-way system. Stewards will direct you to a place.

Do stay seated in your own household bubble.

Don’t join up with other groups.

Don't sing.

Do leave via the one-way route. We aim to have the final song and blessing on the lawn if it's not raining.
Do book your place for next week via the church office.
Do let the office know if you are tested positive for COVID within 14 days of being present. If this happens, we will inform all who attended. Attendees should then seek medical advice on any requirement for self-isolation or testing. 


Outside services

As the weather improves we will hold services on the lawn whenever possible. Again, stay in your household bubble, we still advise you to wear a mask, but we are able to sing outdoors. You may bring a chair or blanket.


See you there!
