Covid-19

Most recent church update: July 2021

In March 2019 the first Covid lockdown in England began. As events have since unfolded, 360Life Church has always sought to be wise in following the legal requirements and in heeding government guidance. Now that Covid restrictions have been lifted from 19th July 2021, we have, once again, determined how 360Life Church should respond.

For some of us, there is understandable relief that booking seats at services, maintaining restrictions on singing and complying with the legal requirement to wear face masks have all come to an end. But for others, we appreciate that the changes have brought heightened concern, especially given the current increases in Covid cases in our area and the fact that notifications to self-isolate are running high.

As a church, we have a real duty of care for one another. We are called to “prefer one another in love”. It is also right that we act responsibly and continue to play our part in helping to reduce transmission of the virus within the community at large. We must also assist those who are not yet feeling confident to meet to worship with others at Cale Green Life Centre.

Even if you don’t feel able yet to come to Cale Green on a Sunday morning, you can always watch the livestream at home and perhaps try an in-person event in a smaller setting first.

All of us have waited so long for Covid restrictions to end. Nevertheless we must be mindful that the virus is still here and that we have a responsibility to act carefully and considerately around others. So let’s all move together, safely, through this next step. We are confident that God will help us as we do so.

If you have any questions about any of this, please do not hesitate to contact us.

For the sake of the whole church, we are striking a balance for how we conduct in-person events:


  • We will reduce the risk of transmission by maintaining open ventilation (keeping doors and windows open), by the regular cleaning of the building, and by continuing to encourage everyone to use hand-sanitiser upon entering and leaving the building.
  • We encourage everyone to limit close personal contact with many different people, especially during the first few weeks of the new guidelines.
  • We ask everyone to respect other people’s “personal space”.
  • Masks will no longer be a legal requirement. But if you feel safer continuing to wear one, we suggest that you do so. Some people may wear a mask to show care and concern for others. With that in mind, it would be considerate for all of us to put a mask on when we are singing together.
  • There is no longer a requirement to sign-in or to book-in for services in advance.
  • Chairs will be put out in rows (rather than bubble groups). If you would rather keep the seat(s) next to you unoccupied, cards will be available at the entrance that you can put on the seat(s) beside you, so that others know to leave the space for you.
  • As always, if you are unwell or have Covid or flu symptoms, please stay at home.
