We welcome the lifting of restrictions announced by an Taoiseach recently.
However, many people still feel vulnerable and unsure, and the risk of infection is not over.
At DMC, we will be relaxing restrictions gradually, while ensuring that people can feel safe when they participate in activities and services on site.
We will continue to require masks, sanitizing and ventilation at indoor gatherings. However, we will be allowing greater numbers into our church services and we hope to reintroduce tea and coffee at meetings, which will be a welcome return to normal life!
The leaders of each church organisation will make their own assessment of the risks involved in their meetings and will take whatever steps they feel are necessary to keep everyone safe.
Andrew and myself are required by MCI to take weekly antigen tests as a precautionary measure.
Let us continue to pray for those who are still suffering from the impact of Covid on their lives.
