FAQs

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?

What will the format of the services be?

Our Gatherings are places where everyone has fun, family is built and where we can lay the foundations of our church family going forward. Services are about one hour long, including 10 minutes of high energy kids worship and a game, then once the kids have gone to their amazing kids spaces we will worship some more, have a short talk or interview and some response time.

Can I help out?

Yes! There are lots of opportunities to serve and help make the Gatherings happen. If you’d like to find out more about joining one of the teams, email Matt on matt.davis@emmausrd.com

Welcome team will be responsible for set up and pack down, refreshments and welcoming people.

Kids team will be responsible for the kids provision. We cannot run our Kids provision if we don’t have enough team so please do consider joining this team if you have children, we keep people on a rota so you don’t volunteer on Kids every week.

Worship team will be responsible for helping us to worship. This includes the band, the sound team and the visuals team.

GROUPS

Can I bring my children?

We want to make church fun for everyone! For kids, we will do a 10 minute up front, high energy slot for the whole family right at the start of the service and then for the rest of the time there will be awesome activities in kids church for kids to enjoy.

GETTING PREPARED

How do I download the NHSCOVID-19 app?

To download the app, visit the App Store on your iPhone, or the Google Play Store on your Android phone. The app is only available on smartphones, and cannot be used on a smartwatch or tablet. Open the search screen and type “NHS Covid-19”. Then download the app on your phone.

I can’t download the NHSCOVID-19 app, can I still attend?

You will be able to attend, however, we would prefer people to have the app if at all possible.

AT THE VENUE

What happens if I forget my face covering?

In line with government guidelines, masks are optional but are being encouraged, particularly for indoor gatherings. In this, let us extend grace and sensitivity to each other.

We will have some disposable face coverings for anyone who forgets their own.

Can I sing?

We will be encouraging singing with or without a mask!

What happens if I feel unwell in the service?

If at any point in the lead up to the service, during the service or immediately after the service you develop any of the Coronavirus symptoms, we ask that you leave the building immediately, limiting your contact with others as much as possible.

Can I speak and interact with people at the service?

This is still a time of considerable uncertainty, so we would ask that if you are coming, that you will considerate towards others who are there. For example, although you may want to shake hands or hug someone, check first that they are comfortable with that. In all that we do, we want to look after and honour each other.

Will I be able to take communion?

We are unable to offer communion at the service due to the increased risk of transmission of Coronavirus. However, you can still say the words in your heart and we would encourage you to take communion when you get home.

Will you take my temperature?

We will no longer be measuring temperatures.

What happens if I have a high temperature?

If you have a temperature of 38C or above, please remain at home.
