As part of developing and creating a healthy community there are a few important things we expect each part of our church family to do. Creating a healthy community involves communication. This helps us work together. In a practical sense it means communicating about plans for Natvity events and communicating about things that go wrong or that could cause issues in the future.
We have four main ways to communicate these things:
Nativity Event form
This is used to share your plan for any event that is associated with Nativity church. If you are wondering whether your event needs one or not you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org and ask. Filling in the form should help you think about and communicate the practical things you can do to ensure safety at the event, and help your team order it so that it runs well.
Nativity Accident form
This form is a way of communicating about an injury, loss or significant event at Nativity church. Use this form to communicate what happened to who, when and what has been done about it. It also helps communicate about anything that may need to be done to follow up and avoid any repeats in future. It could be for any significant incident you need to communicate about: e.g. a sprained ankle from playing a game in the hall, or having the fire brigade turn up due to burnt toast at a breakfast event.
Nativity Near Miss form
Our near-miss form is used to detail statements of near miss events which could have resulted in injury or property damage. It is used by Nativity Staff to record the details of near miss events so that risks can be mitigated and more serious, even fatal, incidents can be prevented.
Nativity Information form
If you would like to share any other information, please use this form. Being a healthy sized church community, information can be missed or lost if not shared properly. By sharing information this way you help us make sure the information is communicated to those who need to know. This helps make Nativity a place where each one of us can assist in creating healthy community.
Online Nativity Information form.
There are paper versions of these forms located directly under phone in the main entrance to the Nativity church hall and office area.
If you want the fast-post option – just fill in the forms online and email them to email@example.com.
If you have serious concerns about an upcoming event you are running, or need help in figuring out what to do about something happening at a Nativity event you are running, please don’t hesitate to contact the vicar directly (click here).
How to protect yourself and others
You can take some simple steps to help stop the spread of diseases like COVID-19.
Symptoms of COVID-19 are similar to a range of other illnesses such as influenza. Having any of these symptoms does not necessarily mean that you have COVID-19.
Difficulty breathing is a sign of possible pneumonia and requires immediate medical attention.
We don’t yet know how long symptoms take to show after a person has been infected, but current World Health Organization assessments suggest that it is 2–10 days. We know from other outbreaks that self-isolation is effective, and most people are good at keeping themselves – and others – safe and well.
Currently, there is no specific treatment for Coronavirus, but medical care can treat most of the symptoms.
As this is a new virus, there is currently no vaccine available. Researchers are in the early stages of developing one.
We strongly recommend that you get your flu jab. These are available from 1st April 2020.
