Sunday Services Guidelines for August

The Church Leadership Team have recently met to
review the recent Government relaxation of rules re Covid19.

The Methodist Church and South Warwickshire Circuit
are recommending caution and with the recent rise in
Covid numbers locally, the Leadership Team decided to
keep most of the previous guidelines in place for August.

The Main change is great news
In August

Singing will be allowed but with Face Masks on please

However, we would recommend, for the safety and well being of other,
that if you are planning to attend Sunday Worship
will you please take a Lateral Flow Test prior to attending

Please do read the guidelines below,
these will now be reviewed on a monthly basis.

In Control

View from the Control Desk

(As seen by Hank Redway who has witnessed and felt the nail-biting, last minute stress and ultimate relief as Steve Conway and David Witham coax our ageing equipment into life, sometimes literally minutes before the preacher walks to the lectern. If only the congregation knew. Well, they do now!)

 

This is the tale of two guys that I know,
They’re really not brash, they don’t make a show,
They reproduce sound from upstairs, where unseen,
They ensure that the pictures transmit to the screen.

The first one is Steve, he just knows about things,
Advanced  electronics? He’s up there with kings.
He twiddles the knobs, gently coaxing our gear,
And makes it all work; though how? – I’m not clear!

Assisted by David, this pair are like gnomes,
Quietly bringing a service right into our homes.
But the stunning result you receive without care
Belies the sheer angst these two have to bear.

I’ve witnessed the skill that they calmly portray
When just at the last, there’s a hitch to allay.
There are so many things that can ever go wrong
When approaching the finish, that final furlong.

The ageing computer may freeze without warning,
“Oh no! not today, surely not this morning!”
Then out of the blue, it transfers from defiant
And springs into life and shifts to compliant.

Now the audios in church aren’t at the right level!
Or the Zoom, or the loop, they just can be the devil.
Independently tweaked, to find the right pitch,
They refuse to just blend, there’s always a hitch.

But what’s this I hear? Do we have a solution?
A new piece of kit to reduce the confusion.
A sound board that works with much simpler controls
That helps the fraught boys to achieve all their goals.

So, thanks for that, guys, perhaps a refresher
Would help to relieve my rising blood pressure.
Then all we require as you teach, and you tutor
Is a few more to help – and a brand-new computer!
