Back to the future

If I had a pound for every time I heard the phrase, "so when are we going to be able to.... " regarding our church buildings, I'd be very wealthy! As restrictions are being lifted the questions of what will, or won't, be our future-normal come into view. There are ongoing limitations that mean only 15 persons at one time at St Pauls, and only 27 persons at St Peters' will be permitted even with the revised 1-plus metre rulings but, what might be possible? We will step forward wisely, seeking to discern the times...

There are two surveys we've designed to help us hear and understand the mood of our church family and help PCC make wise choices in these unique times. Please contribute to one: if you're longstanding church family or one of the many newcomers to us! Your response in a brief church family questionnaire is eagerly desired! Only requiring approximately 4-5minutes, and it'll help us keenly assess the mood of our church family regarding the future-normal of gathered church! Perhaps you're one of the many guests and newcomers we've welcomed at this time, and we'd so welcome your views regarding our online and future-normal gathered church life! If this is you, your response is welcome.

1 What have you gained that you'd be happy to lose?

2 What have you gained that you'd like to keep?

3 What have you lost that you'd be happy not to see again?

4 What have you lost that you miss and want back?
