We may ask for general information about you such as your name, address and other details so that we can contact you, provide services to you or for the purpose of your participation in church activities. The information collected may include some sensitive information such as health information, your religious beliefs and so forth. Where practicable, the reason for collecting personal information will be made clear at the time of collection.
You are not required to give us any personal information. However if you do not provide us with certain information we may not be able to provide you with access to some of our services or allow you to participate in some of our activities. The circumstances in which we would restrict access to services or activities are rare.
During the COVID 19 pandemic, we are also required to maintain a register of attendees at all gatherings on church property, including attendance at weddings, private worship, and small religious ceremonies, Contact information must be kept about all guests and staff for contact tracing purposes, including name, address and mobile phone number for a period of at least 28 days.
