Strict Lockdown
(Update January 23, 2021)

The measures against corona are even stricter till at least February 10. We call upon the churches to follow the measures strict so the spread of the virus can be stopped.

 

  • Preferably meet online
  • Physical meetings are discouraged. When you physically meet, limit to a maximum of 30 people (excluding those involved in the service)
  • Follow regulations: distance 1.5 m and hygiene regulations, protocols and usage plans per church
  • No singing apart, recently the advise is that is no singing of  a worship group in the front
  • People are asked to wear a mouth mask

It remains important that the measures are followed not only in the church but also in other places.

Churches can help to prevent the spread of the virus by calling on people to follow the measures, by providing information and by providing practical and spiritual support for people. While doing this please give attention to the questions persons have about vaccinationa and encourage them. Also inform them about the restrictions for visitors at home.

Usage plan for your Church

Every church should make a plan of use on how to ensure that the corona measures are maintained during church services. In this video  you can see what you have to take into account and how you can make a usage plan.

The presentation can also be downloaded here so that you can adjust the example of the usage plan for your own church.

Materials

On the website coronapreventiekerken.nl there are signs, banners, tape, vests, etc. for sale specifically for churches in the 1.5 m society

Holy Supper

A tip that we received for churches that want to celebrate corona proof or online holy  supper while people can participate at home is the Fellowship Cup. A ‘single’ cup with grape juice and hosti. They are easily available online.

Pastoral care

Visits are allowed, provided you comply with the regulations of the RIVM (such as keeping a distance of at least 1.5 meters). If the person asking for help or yourself suffers from a cold, cough, sore throat or fever, do not make an appointment. Keep in mind that you can be a source of contamination for people who are more sensitive such as the elderly and the sick. So consider carefully whether it is wise to visit.

If you have any questions about the measures or the specific situation of your church or people of your church, please contact us via mail info@skinrotterdam.nl or app 0681691670.
