We are so excited to be able to welcome you back to TVC Church at the Oakwood Centre!
Please have a good read through the information found here so that you are fully prepared to enjoy being back at our services, while continuing to keep the rest of our congregation and volunteers safe.
While Covid-19 remains with us, we’re being careful to accommodate a limited number of people in the building. We can therefore only welcome those who have a ticket on a Sunday morning.
It is very easy to book a ticket. Simply click on the link for the week that you wish to book and enter your details, then click ‘proceed’. Information is held securely and will only be used to help us to admit the correct number on a Sunday morning, and for test and trace requirements. You will receive a confirmation email with your QR code attached, which you will need in order to be admitted to the building.
Note: If you are on a service team (eg in the worship band, tech team, stewarding, leading or preaching) a ticket will be reserved for you as part of our rota management.
Those attending will need to arrive between 9.50am – 10:25am in order to get everyone into their seats before 10:30am.
Face masks must be worn when entering the building in order to protect those who remain vulnerable. However, we are now able to offer an ‘unmasked’ area where you may remove your mask once sat in your seat. Please choose this ticket type when booking if you would like this option.
Everyone arriving will go through the following process
During the service, you need to remain seated or standing by your chair, unless you need to use the toilets. Services will be approximately 1 hour 15 minutes long.
We are thrilled that our children can also enjoy worshipping together on a Sunday. Our ‘Illuminate’ children’s provision runs from age 2-5 (Fireflies) and Y1-Y6 (Spark). Please take the time to book the correct ticket for each child, so that we have plenty of space in our groups. Full information about these groups is available here.
Will I be safe attending the services?
We have taken time to develop best practice through the pandemic. Guidance from the Evangelical Alliance and other churches has helped, as well as the involvement of healthcare professionals. We have developed comprehensive procedures to ensure our services at The Oakwood Centre will be as safe as possible.
Can we sing?
Yes, we are now allowed to sing, and we’re making up for lost time! Singing is a key part of our worship together when we gather.
Can I choose where I sit?
You will be able to choose where you sit within the auditorium. Stewards will be be available to assist you in finding seats. As we now have the option to ‘unmask’ while seated, please let stewards know your preference before being seated as those with masks will sit in a separate area to those who wish to remove their masks.
