COVID-19 Services Update


Myself as Pastor, elders and deacons met for an online meeting on Sunday 3 January 2021 to discuss if we should reopen the church for in-person services on Sundays. It was felt that we should press pause for the time being and not have in-person worship services. Whilst we absolutely believe that meeting together as a church is vital and important, we feel that it’s unwise to have a large group of people gathering together in person at the moment due to the rising numbers of people testing positive for Covid and the increase of Covid being transmissible. Since that meeting, the Prime Minister made an announcement on 4 January that England would be entering into another lockdown situation. The guidelines do allow for churches to meet in person, but we feel it's sensible to not do that at the moment. We will keep this under review and review every two weeks.

Meanwhile, all our services will be live streamed every Sunday at 10am, and you will be able to find the link to the message and also the accompanying outline by clicking here.

When we do re-open for in-person worship services, we will be following all the relevant guidelines to ensure we continue to be a Covid Safe building, and have put together a Coronavirus Risk Assessment for Opening Cowplain Evangelical Church, which gives you full details of everything we have done here at CEC to minimise the risk of transmission of Covid-19.  You can access that document by clicking here. 

We look forward to seeing you here very soon.
