Scunthorpe SA Survey

Please take the time to fill out the information requested below.

Click the orange continue button.

There are 6 stages to this survey, click continue each time.

The last page will ask you to 'submit' your answers. When you see 'thanks for submitting', you'll know you have completed the survey. Many thanks.

The information below the survey (to the right if you're viewing on a desktop computer) is to keep you informed and may help you to answer some of the questions.

Further Information

Your views and insights will help us enormously as we continue to work towards being able to gather physically again, in order to worship together. There is an information section below, which will clarify a few things about what is required for us to safely open for gathered worship, and what constitutes being clinically vulnerable. 

We do need you to say who you are, but all the answers of these questionnaires will be kept securely and not shared with anyone outside of the Pastoral Care Council. Anonymous results will be shared with the corps council and our DHQ team for the purposes of making decisions in order to keep everyone safe.

^^ DVDs will have three or four meetings on, and will necessarily be a look back at what we’ve done.

The way forwards:

Our first priority, as God’s people, is the health, safety and wellbeing of everyone. Formal risk assessments are in the process of being finalised and the work to prepare for reopening is taking place. Then we will have a visit from the DHQ team who will agree that we are Covid-secure, meaning that we have taken all necessary measures.

After this, and having taken into account all the information we receive from you via this survey, we will reconvene as a leadership team, and prayerfully consider the best way forward. Thank you for your time in helping us do this. We do not take this job lightly, and we are very mindful of the differing needs of our fellowship. We cannot afford to get this wrong, as far as is humanly possible, so thank you for your patience and understanding as we take all the time necessary to do our best for the corps and God’s kingdom.

Be assured, the Kingdom of God is unshakeable, and nothing can separate us from His love. We encourage you to keep finding ways to be, and give away, God’s love in this strange world we find ourselves in.

Together in Christ with you,

The Corps Council



Things you need to know about what attending will be like:-

  • You may have to queue to enter the building, and you will need to remain socially distant from anyone not in your household or support bubble

  • You will need to sanitise your hands on entry and exit of the building

  • Your attendance and contact details will be recorded in the Test and Trace register, and the information will be kept for no longer than necessary

  • You will be shown to your seat in a hall that will not look the way you’re used to; you can only sit with members of your household or support bubble, and we’re not able to get up and walk around to talk to people

  • We are not able to sing or have the band play, but we can have music via cds, and the piano

  • The meeting leader is able to remove their mask to lead the meeting so long as they remain on the platform

  • At the end of the meeting you will be directed to leave in order, from those seated at the back to those at the front, in keeping with the one way system we have to have. You won’t be able to stand and chat at the back, and you will need to maintain social distancing even as you leave the building

Official Salvation Army guidance on the wearing of face masks and visors:-

“Face coverings (masks) must be worn in the relevant places if people are able to wear them. If a person is exempt from wearing a face covering but is able to tolerate a visor then they should be encouraged to do so, as a visor, while not as effective as a face covering does provide a limited level of protection.​​”

“It is a legal requirement that face coverings are worn in a range of indoor venues including places of worship and charity shops, except for people with an exemption. 

Exemptions differ between each nation and these can range from those with physical or mental illness, to an impairment or hidden disability. Children are also exempt from wearing face coverings however the age in which this applies differs between the nations. 

Always be kind and courteous if you approach someone who is not wearing a face covering. While some people may feel comfortable showing an exemption card, badge or home-made sign, this is not necessary in law and they should not be made to wear a face covering or denied access to our corps or shops.” 

**Our experience is that you get to the point where you almost don’t notice the face mask anymore, and as someone has pointed out, you do feel warmer with the mask on.
