Connecting with GHBC

Sunday Gatherings

We are organising our Sunday meetings around the guidelines issues by the Government and by the Baptist Union. However we are in a fast moving and rapidly changing environment and we have to balance our desire to meet with the need to keep everyone safe. It’s important, to the Diaconate, to continue to support and lead the fellowship in the best way we can.

We are now back “live” in the building but we will continue to broadcast live to Zoom and Facebook as usual and you are still be able to chat to others before and after the service. We are inviting members of the congregation to join us on a rota basis and will also be resuming our Kidzone activities in the building. Please wait for your invitation before planning to attend the church in person.

If you have any concerns, then please get in touch with Steve or any of the Deacons.

Supporting GHBC

JGButtonIf you’d like to support GHBC financially during lockdown but don’t have a standing order or direct payment set up – you can now do so through our Just Giving page.

Thank you for your support which enables GHBC to do so much. Steve and Lars are happy to help if you have any questions.

Self-isolating? Don’t be isolated!

Please don’t feel cut off and helpless in your home if you are self-isolating. We’ve set up a support group to help with shopping, fetching prescriptions, providing meals or just for a short, friendly chat. Please contact us if you either need, or can give, help.

Covid Precautions

If you are involved with a ministry within the Church that is still meeting or entering the premises (ie Bags of Hope, Tuesday Meals, AV, essential Maintenance, Admin or Finance) it is essential that we know if you have any contact with the virus. This helps us to prevent further spread and to keep our teams safe.

As such, if you:

  • Test positive for Covid-19
  • Develop symptoms of Covid-19 (temperature, new cough, shortness of breath, loss of taste or smell)
  • Live with someone who tests positive or develops the symptoms
  • Are contacted by NHS test and Trace and instructed to self-isolate

Please let us know as soon as possible.

If NHS track and Trace ask you for contact details for GHBC, please give them our phone number.
