Area Meeting has approved an important guide, COVID-19 Safe Method of Operating. This sets out stringent conditions for the safe re-opening of Bristol Meeting Houses. Redland Meeting House will not be able to re-open until these conditions are met.
Re-opening will be further delayed by our Meeting’s decision to carry out quite extensive building work during August/September 2020 (new side windows and a new corridor and side exit to enable one-way traffic and improve fire safety). We also hope to install equipment to enable ‘blended worship’ (combining some physical presence with online worship for Friends who do not want to come to the Meeting House).
Realistically, we can begin to plan towards re-opening our Meeting House for worship on Sunday 1 November.
