UPDATED COVID - 19 GUIDANCE (January 2022)

Upon attending a service at the Strand you must provide your Proof of Covid status (please note for all methods below other than the COVIDCert NI App you must also bring photo ID)

In line with new legislation from the NI Executive, all customers aged 18 and over must provide evidence of one of the following when coming to Strand Arts Centre:

  • proof of being fully vaccinated: EITHER COVID-19 vaccination card given to you when you got the vaccine, along with photo ID such as passport or driving licence OR the Covid vaccine certificate via the COVIDCert NI App (if you are bringing any official documentation from outside Northern Ireland such as the EU Digital Covid Certificate you will also need photo ID)



  • proof of a negative lateral flow rapid test within the last 48 hours along with photo ID (your test result must have been uploaded to https://www.gov.uk/report-covid19-result and you will receive an e-mail or text message which you must show on arrival).


  • proof of natural immunity from a positive PCR test taken in the previous 30 to 180 days along with photo ID.

As a result of this government legislation, failure to provide your Covid Certification status will require us legally to refuse you entry to the premises.

Further information on how to prove your Covid status can be found on the NI Direct website: https://www.nidirect.gov.uk/articles/coronavirus-covid-19-information-covid-certification-scheme


We love Sundays.

Join us in-person every Sunday morning.

Sunday Mornings

We LOVE gathering together, in person, on Sunday mornings at our home at the Strand Arts Centre. If you're looking for a church to call home, we'd love to see you this Sunday!

9.45AM – Pre-Service Prayer
10:30AM – Main Gathering

It's important that you consider what is the best approach for your household, bubble or situation when deciding whether to attend an in-person gathering. While safety measures are in place; the transmission of Covid-19 cannot be entirely eliminated. If you are showing symptoms, unwell or feel uncomfortable in attending, we encourage you to stay at home.

Spaces remain limited due to social distancing and you must register in advance for track and trace purposes. Please only register if you are certain you can attend. If circumstances change, please let us know so we can offer your seat to someone else.

Pre-Service Prayer

One of the highlights of Sundays is our pre-service prayer gathering which begins every Sunday at 9.45am before the main service.


We spend some time calling out to God for one another, our City and our Nation. We then spend some time listening to the Holy Spirit, prophesying and sharing what God is saying to us. It's a great, safe place to grow in the things of the Spirit. If you’re thinking of visiting, why not join us? This is open to everyone - no experience necessary!

Social Distancing

We ask that you adhere to 1m+ social distancing in and around the building. We know how we do this will be a testimony to those in the surrounding community. 

We ask that you respect distancing and avoid hand-shaking, hugs etc. 

If you have COVID-19 symptoms, have been in close contact with, or live with someone who has COVID-19 symptoms that you let us know as soon as possible. Please do not attend an in-person gathering until your period of isolation is over.  Also if you or anyone in your household has been notified by the track and trace system we ask you watch from home.
