‘When they said, ‘Let’s go to the house of God, my heart leapt with joy.’ (Psalm 122:1)
To prepare our church for opening we have produced a Risk Assessment, inspected our church building to ensure all is in order, deep cleaned the whole church; all chairs, fabric, carpets, and floors have been steam cleaned, all hard surfaces pews, etc have been cleaned with recommended surface cleaner. The entire church was then sanitised using Ultra Low Volume Hydrogen Peroxide fogging. For more details on our:

**Update: Meldrum church has continued to be cleaned and maintained as per our normal practice over the last few weeks as we remained open for funerals and for recording services, our risk assessments have been updated wherever necessary.
Latest information - updated 9 August 2021:
The SG announced this statement:
“Even though the law will not stipulate physical distancing from Monday (9 August 2021), we will continue to advise the public that - especially indoors - keeping a safe distance from people in other households and avoiding crowded places will minimise risk.”
Although it would be possible for us to offer a range of seating options, we have decided for the next few weeks that we will stick with the 1-metre distancing regime which was so recently put in place. We hope this will be more reassuring for those attending our services.
