In line with the UK Government most recent update on social distancing, DOMINION CITY is continually reviewing our guidance for our place of worship and for our congregants as their safety is of utmost importance. DOMINION CITY is introducing some cautious measures both as compliance to government advise and as a necessity to maintain proper hygiene. Individuals are encouraged to follow the guidance issued by the government and NHS.
With the announcement of reopening places of worship from July 4th, we understand that not all of DOMINION CITY family would be inclined to returning to face to face congregational worship in our building, we will continue to harness digital technology to spread the good news and fellowship with one another as we have done throughout this season.
However, for those who wish to return to face to face congregational worship in our building, be rest assured we have already set our facilities up to standards which are commensurate to government advise and proper hygiene. This would ensure you safely enjoy your experience during fellowship.
Hand Sanitizing stations have been positioned at visible and convenient locations around church
We strongly encourage that you bring your own mask and wear it whilst in the church facility; in case you are not able to, we may provide you one upon entry. Any member attempting to enter the church premises or use our pick up service without a mask will be politely reminded that it is now mandatory to wear one.
Please carry tissues with you to cough and sneeze into and be sure to properly bin it and wash your hands immediately after.
We would be adhering to a no physical contact policy, which means no handshakes, no hugging.
There would be a one-way flow of congregants into and from the church. Ushers and signs would be strategically positioned to assist movement.
We would be strictly operating within our timeframe to ensure every group gets enough time to fellowship and also to ensure the premises is properly cleaned and sanitised after every service. This may mean our meet and greet before and after service would not be as refreshing as it once was, please understand that this is for your safety and the safety of our community.

SERVICE TIMES AND BOOKING
To manage our capacity, we are reducing our seating capacity to ensure congregants are adequately spaced in line with social distancing. As such, we would be running new service times to ensure everyone gets a chance to safely and comfortably fellowship in church.
Our four new service times are now:
9am – 10am | 10:30am – 11:30am | 12am – 1pm | 6pm -7pm
To ensure that you get a seat, please be sure to visit our booking site and register for your seat and transportation as soon as possible before maximum capacity reaches per service as we would want to maintain strict adherence to safety. However, if you decide to switch service times, please be sure to de-register yourself and send us a message so that others intending can get a chance to attend the service. Remember to include children, family and friends in attendance so that proper planning and arrangements can be made to accommodate all. Click Here to Book.
As much as we would encourage every giving to be made online, we understand that some may still be inclined to giving by cash, our envelopes would still be made available to you for giving. Our POS terminals would still be made available but will be managed in sanitary and hygienic conditions.
All face to face counselling is now cancelled but we would be maximising technological platforms to ensure that all your spiritual needs are attended to.

We understand that this are uncertain times, but as a church we are not shaken by what the world goes through. Our assurance lies and remains in the word of God that although we are in this world, we are not of this world;
John 17 v 15-16
I am not asking that You take them out of the world, but that You keep them from the evil one. They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world
Thus, we have overcome the world and its evil through our faith in Jesus Christ.
1 John 5 v 4
For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world— our faith
Stand firm in the victory Christ has wrought for you, you are more than an overcomer!! Hallelujah
Romans 8 v 37
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
