If all those who were intending to go into the balcony last week had gone upstairs there would have been 21 people adults and children up there out of an in-person congregation of 57. In other words, 37% would have been upstairs in a small space as we are now using only one side of the balcony.
That would not be safe. Our plan is to use the balcony as an overflow area once the downstairs area has been safely filled. This will have the added advantage of improving the singing and enhancing worship for everyone.
