Here are some important details to help you enjoy Live on the Lawn at Whetstone Baptist Church safely.
You must book
Places are limited and need to be booked in advance.
Please email the office firstname.lastname@example.org giving:
Names of all the people coming with you as a household or group (a maximum of 6 including children) 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. Toilets are available in the church. Your details are checked off when you arrive, and the church keeps the attendance data for 14 days.
