baptist Union Covid-19 response
As of 17th March 2020 BUGB website states “The advice is now that people should avoid meeting together wherever possible and this will have an impact on meeting on Sunday and at other times in the week. Sunday services should not now takes place and the move to online meetings, wherever possible, will need to be developed.”
The question was specifically raised during a session in Parliament concerning the expectations on all faith groups and churches. The minister replied, ‘We taken advice from our ethics committee which includes representatives from the major religious faiths and it is true that in our advice to avoid…..social contact we do include religious groups in that. And we have seen elsewhere in the world how it is sometimes through religious gatherings that this virus can spread. So with the deepest regret and with the heaviest of heart we have to include faith groups and gatherings of faith within the advice.’
