December came with new regulations and a hard lockdown. Our leadership team met to discuss how we as LIFE Church are going to respond to the current infection numbers, the increasing burden on hospitals and the hard lockdown. In our conversation, one thing above all has become important to us:
Yes, we want to continue to have services, but we must all work together and take responsibility to adhere the new regulations.
Starting from December 16th 2020, our services can still take place on site in the Advent Church! We are happy that we can continue to welcome you personally so that we can celebrate God and experience his presence together with you! Our hygiene concept is still in place to ensure that the service is safe for everyone who attends and that we do not expose each other to any risk. We therefore ask you to read the following carefully and to comply with it. These points follow the recommendations of our organization, the BFP KdöR, and the state government of Baden Württemberg.
However, we have made some changes as a result to the new regulations:
- Please be sure to register online in ADVANCE by 3pm on Saturday.
- Mouth and nose coverings must be worn throughout the service.
- The congregation may not sing along during the service (only singing from the stage is allowed).
- Nursery, Kids Church and PreTeens will not be held for an indefinite period of time.
- Please head home directly after the service. Conversations before and after the service will not be possible.
- The LIFE Groups will be kept online until further notice.
Thank you for your support! Let us seek God especially in this challenging time and be light in this world.
How we proceed
If you or your family should show symptoms of illness such as loss of your sense of smell and taste, fever, cough and sore throat, we ask you to stay at home. If you have had contact with an infected person and if 14 days have not passed since the last contact, please stay at home. We are legally bound to the hygiene requirements and protective measures of the regulation of the state government
on infection-protective measures against the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus (Corona Ordinance – CoronaVO) of June 23, 2020. According to these regulations, a ban on participation applies to the above-mentioned persons. We therefore ask for your cooperation and understanding.
As before, we will also broadcast the service as a live stream.
If you plan on attending a Sunday service, we ask that you register ahead of time. This will help us better plan for your attendance. We have seats available which are set up to accommodate singles, couples as well as groups of 3 or 4. By doing this we can offer more seating overall but group seating is only available to members of the same household and this will be strictly enforced.
If you have trouble registering online for whatever reason – you can call the office and talk to us or leave a message.
Our number: 06221/ 22727
We have marked the floor to help you keep 1,5m distance from others, thus minimizing physical contact. Please disinfect your hands upon entering and try to touch as few surfaces as possible. We don’t want to make everything forbidden but we do want to encourage everyone to navigate the situation circumspectly and take responsibility for yourself and others as much as possible.
We will open the doors at 10:15am. Please follow the ushers’ instructions carefully and fill the seats in the auditorium from front to back. Following the service we kindly ask everyone to exit immediately and to not linger in the building and to please refrain from congregating on the sidewalk in front of the building, but rather head home immediately, avoiding conversations.
