After after 15 months and much work by the Reopening Committee to keep everyone safe, FCC Bristol’s doors opened up on Sunday June 6th and we were able to come back together in person. It was a joy to just be able hear the liturgist read the scripture lesson, to listen to the minister’s sermon, and to hear friends voices and catch up on the news – in person, even if we were all still wearing masks and social distancing, in an effort to safeguard any who may not have yet been able to be vaccinated or who were concerned about COVID-19 variants.
It brought back to mind the old children’s rhyme:
Here is the church.
Here is the steeple.
Open the doors
And see all the people.
Live-stream services, available through the website home page, will continue to be offered every Sunday to anyone who wishes to join the service from home.
