NOTE: FOR VIDEO SERVICES SEE BELOW (BEYOND ALL THE COVID INFO!)


UPDATE ON CHURCH SERVICES

We are 'in the middle' of the 6 week series of Sunday Services that each include worship and a ‘brief video’ led discussion (see the Church Family letter emailed/etc - on 30th September). Each individual week is still very appropriate in its own right.
Praying that we will all find such a proven series helpful & beneficial in seeking an inspiring way forward – for God’s will to be done in our lives, in our local communities and on our 'front-lines'. In the glorious name of Jesus. AMEN

God bless - stay safe

INVOLVEMENT WITH WAVERLEY JUNIOR ACADEMY

We received such a warm welcome from the wonderful students and staff at a recent visit which was requested by the Academy as we talked about and discussed what we as Christians did in the Community (Serving God - Serving the Community).

The children have done some fantastic Posters advertising Events for us! 

A Mini Choir from Waverley Junior Academy practiced various songs - which they performed in the Chapel at our Christmas Fayre. They were fantastic and contributed brilliantly to the overall success of the Fayre! Soon we will be working together with the Academy to hold two 'Christingle'

           Performances in the Academy Main Hall on the 10th December.                 

Many thanks go to Katie Walton & other teachers for making all this possible.

IMPORTANT NOTICE - REF COVID 19


FOLLOWING THE GOVERNMENT'S ANNOUNCEMENT YESTERDAY (27th November 2021) WITH REGARD TO EXTRA MEASURES (INCLUDING POTENTIAL GREATER USE OF FACE MASKS) - WE AWAIT FORMAL INSTRUCTIONS AND GUIDANCE FROM THE YORKSHIRE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION/BAPTIST UNION - ON THE INTERPRETATION OF THE GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS CHANGES THIS COMING WEEK. 


 LAST UPDATE ON COVID

N.B. Following the Government announcement on 19/07/21 and subsequent follow up information - we awaited the stabilisation of associated Baptist Union Guidelines - and can report that our Leadership Team held a  review on 15th August 2021. At that meeting we agreed a Covid Addendum approach to our Health & Safety Policy. This Addendum was signed off by our Chair of Trustees on 27th August. We are also updated our Covid Control Action Lists document to reflect this and the review against BU's latest Coronavirus Risk Assessment template. 

We will continue with good ventilation, diligence in hygiene, and will encourage people to wear masks to protect others especially during singing.

We have also set up a 'sanctuary' area on the LHS of the rear of the Chapel for those wishing to maintain full social distancing/mask wearing. 

The Exercise Group on Thursday afternoons (3pm) has restarted 

along with the Library Coffee mornings (9:30am - 12:30).

We have recently held two weddings and several Dedications. 

Services take place at 10:45 on Sunday mornings. 

Occasionally we may continue to screen the on-line service from a sister church in Portugal - but have now mainly returned to 'normal' face to face services.

PREVIOUS COVID 19 UPDATE INFORMATION 

AS FROM 5th JANUARY 2021 - FOLLOWING THE GOVERNMENT'S INTRODUCTION OF THE 3rd (?) NATIONAL LOCKDOWN (REFLECTING THE RAPID SPREAD OF THE UK MUTATED COVID 19 VIRUS) - 

IN LINE WITH OUR BAPTIST UNION ADVICE - THE CHURCH WAS EFFECTIVELY CLOSED 

(EXCEPT FOR ESSENTIAL MAINTENANCE, ADMIN, ETC)

UNLESS MENTIONED BELOW UNDER UPDATE INFORMATION THIS MEANT WE HAVE NOT BEEN HOLDING ANY EVENTS ETC (See below) - OR HOLDING MANY WORSHIP SERVICES until May/June.

Although, as previously (see below) we have been prepared to host funerals when possible/permitted.

NO COMMUNITY EVENTS 

taking place within the church buildings or grounds

i.e. No weekly Library Coffee Morning; Thursday Exercise Group; 

Sugar Craft Group; No monthly Lunch Club, Ladies nights etc&

All 2020 annual ‘social’ events had already been CANCELLED

(e.g. Summer Garden Party, Bonfire Party; Autumn/Christmas Fayre; 

and the Salvation Army Christingle Events). 

AND UNFORTUNATELY THIS MAY HAVE TO BE THE CASE FOR THE REST OF 2021.

NOTE: WE DID DECIDE TO HOLD THE CHRISTMAS FAYRE & HOPE TO HOLD THE SALVATION ARMY AND CHRISTINGLE EVENTS


We continue to pray that the COVID situation improves significantly. We pray for all those who have died and for their families - & for all those still suffering directly with COVID or indirectly because of COVID

(we think particularly of Indian situation at this time - including guiding the UK & other Governments how to assist in India & reduce risks of the B.1.617.2 (Delta) Variant from spreading elsewhere). 

We pray for God's healing - in the name of Jesus our saviour. AMEN.

UPDATE INFORMATION

As the vaccination programme became well advanced - we were able to hold an EASTER PRAISE service on 4th April 2021 - and then a PENTECOST (Whit Sunday) service on 23rd May. 

Since then we have been coming together to worship via our big screen 'on-line' services compiled by 

 a sister 'Baptist based' church in Portugal - see below 'ON-LINE SERVICES VIA YOUTUBE'.

If anyone wishes to attend any services PLEASE DO CONTACT US to ensure we can do our best to accommodate you - since numbers have to be limited due to continued social distancing. 

(We are also still hoping to hold some outdoor services weather permitting!)

(Note: An Advent worship service did take place on 20.12.2020) 

If anyone wishes to attend our services PLEASE CONTACT US to ensure we can do our best to accommodate you since numbers have to be limited due to continued social distancing.           

We have also been looking at the possibility of holding Outdoor Services to permit 'congregational' singing  (which is not permitted inside the Chapel). A Risk Assessment has been completed - now praying for some good weather - various actions still need to put in place too.

Funeral services will continue as needed  

NOTE: During the 2nd 'Lockdown' we were so glad to be in a position to respond to a request from Pastor Dave Goddard to host a funeral for his friend. Dave led that service held on 30th November 2020 and gave us this very positive feedback:

A BIG thank you to TREETON BAPTIST CHURCH...the Funeral of Stuart Smith went lovely...again thanks to everyone that helped clean and prepare the Church...you all did amazing.  People also commented how clean the Church was...and that all Government procedures due to Covid were in place and followed. Treeton Baptist Church was mentioned and thanked at the Graveside by the family...a few people also said they would attend a service there when things are back on.          


 AS AT 26.11.2020/AND THEN ON 15.12.2020, etc)

 We have addressed the possibility of re-opening for COVID control style  services taking account of:

the latest Government Rules (which as we know can change rapidly- alongside the regularly updated Yorkshire Baptist Association/Baptist Union Guidance. 

To ensure public Health and Safety - particular emphasis has been given to conducting COVID 19 Risk Assessments - to enable actions to be identified (and now implemented) to permit shorter than normal services to take place (although only Funerals could take place during 2nd National Lockdown).

The control actions and restrictions during such services have been shared (particularly for feedback) with Church Members and regular Attendees (as far as practicable). We received enough feedback for the Trustees to be able to arrange 'COVID Controlled style' shorter worship services - when permitted.

EARLIER COVID 19 INFORMATION (UPDATE AS AT SEPTEMBER 2020) 

We can still confirm that presently (as stated back in March 2020 see below) - the church is CLOSED to the public. This means no church services are taking place at Treeton Baptist Church (unfortunately - currently that includes Weddings and Funerals.

PRIOR TO THIS:  

As from now (21st March 2020) - all Treeton Baptist Church services and smaller gatherings - including all the EVENTS (as previously advertised) - have now been cancelled until further notice. Effectively the Church is closed until further notice. (This follows Government advice that emphasised that we should avoid social interaction and gatherings - subsequently clarified in Parliament that this included religious gatherings such as church services.  Smaller family-sized gatherings were also included in the adviceIn the light of the Government advice - our Yorkshire Baptist Association have concluded that churches should not gather for worship on Sundays, nor in smaller group meetings. As you will all now realise - these are measures to protect those who are vulnerable and to care responsibly for those within our congregation and in the wider community.) However, Maintenance & Administration aspects continue where possible.

                                                         _ _ _ _ _ _

ON-LINE SERVICES VIA YOUTUBE:

In the interim we introduced VIDEOS (SEE BELOW) of services - from a sister 'Baptist based' church in Portugal) - actively supported/sometimes attended by 2 members of our church family. 

The earlier videos can be found on the Sermon Audio and Video tab - but since most people tend to come to the 'Events and UPDATES' page first - all those from 14 06 2020 onwards can be found below:

So - enjoy the worship - watch & listen to God's word from Joy Borgan.

(Joy is the Minister at the International Christian Fellowship - Portimao). 

Joy has sent these YouTube links to be used on this website - and she is happy for them to be shared as you think appropriate. 

SOME VIDEOS HAVE NOW BECOME 'UNAVAILABLE' - TRYING TO RESOLVE THIS ISSUE.

PREVIOUS EVENTS ETC:

REMEMBRANCE SUNDAY:

It was moving to see so many people at the Baptist Chapel, including youngsters, attending the Remembrance Service which was led sensitively by 'stand-in' Gordon Hawley (we pray Maureen will soon feel better) - with the 'Message' given by Carole Robinson of St Helen's on the subject of 'Love'. 

In the crisp sunshine, Chris Nuttall led the time at the War Memorial - where the Two Minute Silence was observed at 11am after the bugle sounded 'The Last Post'. The Silence was then broken by the playing of 'Reveille'. Once wreathes and other tributes were laid, people returned to the warmth of the chapel to conclude the service with prayer, poem and song. The final song was the fittingly The Dambusters Hymn (God is our strength & refuge). People then reminisced over refreshments in the Community Library which is housed in the church. 

The collection raised over £200 for the work of The Royal British Legion. May the Lord bless their work - and the givers.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Many thanks to them - and to Ian for helping to prepare the grounds before hand.
