of Weymouth Baptist Church premises
Following considerable prayer and discussion by the Elders and Deacons it has been decided that because of the nature of our building, the size and closeness of the congregation we will not be resuming full worship services at WBC until the "all clear" is given for the relaxing of all social distancing guidelines. As it stands that is scheduled for after 21st June. So, our first planned service in WBC will be Sunday 27th June at 10 am, if all goes to plan. We will of course be following all government guidelines and will continue to make sanitising liquid available, and anyone who desires to continue to wear a face mask will in no way be prevented from doing so. In the meantime, the church will be opening from the beginning of May for smaller groups including Treasures, GB and Youth Cell - each following the appropriate safety guidelines. The online worship service will continue until we are open again. Many thanks for your patience and prayers.
Pastor Peter Mockett on behalf of the Elders and Deacons.
WBC Bank Buildings
If you have reason to go into the premises (by whichever door you use) please can you sign in and out so that we have a record of who has been in the building for track and trace purposes. There is a sign-in sheet on the table as you go into the side corridor from the side entrance door, and also one on a clipboard at the bottom of the WBC office stairs.
WBC Worship Live Stream, Saturday 15th May, 6 pm
It has been such a long time since we have been able to praise and worship God together as a church family at the church building. Although government/BU guidelines still limit us to how many can be together at church at any one time, a few of us from the worship group (plus our terrific technical team) would like you to join us, via YouTube, in a live stream praise and worship from Weymouth Baptist Church on Saturday 15th May, starting at 6.00pm. We expect the live stream to be for around 45 minutes. Please mark the date and time in your diaries, and join in on YouTube from where you are, to worship Him 'in spirit and in truth'. The link will be published here nearer the time.

South West Awake
You may remember that last year, before Covid struck and the country entered into lockdown, planning was under way for the churches to take part in South West Awake. A new date has been arranged for this year, Saturday 19th June 2021 from 10.30-11am.
The vision behind South West Awake is to see the 630 miles of the South West Coast Path hosted with Christians of all traditions across the region in a chain of prayer and praise.
As for last year, the prayer positions around the coast from Bowleaze to Abbotsbury, but not including Portland, have been kept for Refresh.
(As a church, WBC will be taking part in this powerful and profound day).
If ever there was a time in history when we needed God's hand on this region and nation - it's now.

H & S and Fire Safety
At Weymouth Baptist Church we want to ensure that we adhere to all the latest legislation regarding general health and safety, and fire safety. To this end we are looking for a person or persons, who is a church member, to look after the health and safety paperwork and/or the fire safety. The fire marshal course includes fire risk assessments.
The church will pay for an on-line course (webinar) which may also be a useful qualification for use in the volunteer’s secular work.
Should you want to find out more about what is involved, and have an informal chat, please contact Martin Gardener and he will get back to you.
