Milford Haven's Sunday Meetings
Time & Location
About the event
If you wish to attend, please RSVP in advance. Covid19 regulations still apply; we have to insist on the wearing of facemasks indoors; to maintain social distanceing; and to keep a record of all those attending for Track and Trace. Please self-screen our before attending.
We hve received the following advice as of 20th July 2021:
- There is no longer any legal restriction on the numbers who may gather outdoors, and there is no legal requirement to maintain 2m social distancing outdoors. But it remains a legal requirement to carry out and implement a risk assessment for any activity – including worship – in the open air. This is especially important if singing is included, and it is still recommended that distance be maintained if singing is to take place.
- Indoors, it is now permitted for groups of 6 people from up to 6 households to sit together for worship and other activities – not including singing – and if the risk assessment undertaken allows for this. But if it is intended to sing or vocalise loudly, the guidance remains to maintain a 2m distance between each household or extended household.
There will be an Acting Elder, who may also act as Door-Keeper, directing you to where to sit. Those in 'bubbles' are allowed to sit together. In arranging our spaces it would be most helpful for us to know if you intend to come as a 'bubble'.
If you are in any doubt about your health or level of risk, or if you have any symptoms that might be Covid19 like, please do not attend.
A one-way system still applies to movement around the Meeting House and seating will be arranged to enable social distancing. Here is a plan of the seating and one-way circulation.
The toilets will be open for use. Please wipe down any surfaces you have touched with the cleaner provided using paper towels. Bin the towels straight after, and leave the door open to help with ventilation when you leave.
We will retain our traditional pattern of Meeting:
- Meeting starts at about 11.00 when the first Friend takes their seat.
- Meeting will end at about 12.00. Please do not shake hands.
- Rise and depart
There will be no refreshments provided. If you have a specific need, please bring your own and take away any packaging, etc. when you leave.
Socially distanced socialising may be safely carried out the gardens: it is a long time since we have seen each other! (Strictly, we are supposed to discourage such indulgence.)
Covid19 risk assesments have been prepared for holding Meeting either in the gardens, in the Main Meeting Room or in the Nantucket Suite
Please self-assess using our Covid-19 Screening before deciding to attend.
