Coronavirus

Government restrictions due to COVID were lifted on July 19. The new guidance for Places of Worship places responsibility on organisations and individuals to act appropriately in the light of local conditions.

As we enter September we are altering the way we gather on Sundays.

Sunday Worship

Everyone will gather together for Morning Worship at 10.30am in the Fonteyn Ballroom of the DSU. Morning Worship will continue to be streamed to our YouTube channel. As part of our gathering children along with parents and carers will be able to go to Family Worship. For more information on how this works in practice, head over to our childrens page.

In light of the current COVID situation we are having the following measures in place:

  • We will allow singing, behind masks.
  • Ask people to wear masks at other times when arriving, leaving, and moving around the building.
  • Allow people to take masks off whilst just sitting down.
  • Have a social distancing seated area (1m+) and a non-social distancing seated area. Please state which you require when you book tickets.
  • Encourage booking of tickets, to give us an idea of numbers, but allow people to just turn up.
  • Encourage the taking of lateral flow tests to give confidence to others coming.

We will continue to maintain good ventilation and ensure hand sanitising is available throughout the building. If you turn up and have forgotten your mask we will be able to provide you with one as you enter. As always do not come if you have tested positive for COVID, are awaiting a test or result or have been asked to self-isolate.

Please do book tickets for our gathered worship via the links above.

Small Groups

Our small groups throughout the church, both for residents and students, are taking part in a variety of ways, some in person, some online and others a combination. If you are not part of one and would like to be please contact the church office.

Kids & Youth Work

Our children’s work is focussed over the summer holidays around Family Worship. As we enter September we will restart a number of our mid-week activities for children and youth as well as our Kids@Kings Sunday groups.

Outreach in the community

We are working closely with other charities, agencies and the council to help care for those who are most in need in our city at this time. We have members of our staff & intern team working hard to deliver food to the vulnerable and befriend over the phone those who are lonely. For more information on all the outreach we’re doing visit kcd.org.uk/coronavirus-help.


We will continue to update this page and our social media accounts on Facebook and Instagram with the latest advice. Those in the congregation will receive regular updates via email.

Thank you for your understanding. Let’s continue to pay attention to government advice, use common sense and above all pray for our nation and our world.
