Here at Wealdstone Baptist Church we are dedicated in supporting our local community, here are just a few on the projects we support in the local area:

Food Bank:

At WBC we are collecting food for Harrow Foodbank, to support local people in crisis. For ideas on what to donate please go to: http://harrow.foodbank.org.uk/

Harrow Savings and Loans

This is part of Hillingdon Credit Union, a financial co-operative which allows its members to save and borrow money at low rates on a not-for-profit basis, with surpluses being returned to members.  WBC operates an access point in the church  building on Friday mornings from 10.00-12.00 and can provide applications, general information, access to the Credit Union’s website etc.  It’s at the same time as our “Coffee +” so visitors can enjoy a coffee and cake at the same time!

Dear Members and Friends of Wealdstone Baptist Church,

We are looking forwards to meeting you again on our church premises for small group meetings. Please note that things will be a little different than what we were used to in the past. We have been working hard to implement the guidelines and safety measures recommended be the government and the Baptist Union and try our best to provide a safe environment for everyone, however this will depend on each of us helping on the way.

To be prepared please check and note the following safety guidance before coming to the WBC premises:

· If you are unwell, or displaying any symptoms of COVID19, please stay at home and follow the current guidelines on self-isolating.

· If you are vulnerable or advised to shield, please do not attend in person, as stated in the current government guidelines. We know this might be disappointing for some, however we do not want to put anyone at risk.

· Please bring your own face covering.

· Please adhere to social distancing guidelines (current guidelines state 2m social distancing or if absolutely necessary 1m with face covering ).

· Please note that there will currently be no singing in any of our meetings, in line with government guidelines.

· Please bring your own bible along.

· Please bring your own drink or snack along if you should require it during the meeting.

· Each time you enter the premises you will need to register with your full contact details, these will be kept for 21 days in case it should be needed for NHS track and trace.

· Everyone will be asked to confirm they are well at the time of arrival

· You will be asked to sanitise your hands on entry to the premises and we advise you to wash your hands regularly as appropriate.

· Please follow all distancing and safety measures as provided by the government or displayed around the premises.

· If you are leading a group or using one of the rooms, please make sure to book your location in advance with the admin office.

Please also always check the latest government guidance on https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus.

We are aware that this is a lot of information, but we hope that this will give you a clearer view of what to expect when you attend any of our meetings.

Please do not hesitate to contact the office on office@w-b-c.org.uk if you should have any questions in relation to this.
