I’m afraid that with the latest government advice and because of our desire to protect the welfare of the church family and the wider community we’ve made a decision as an eldership to cancel all church meetings for the foreseeable future. We do this with a heavy heart and looking forward very much to when we’ll gather together as a church again. We’ll close for four weeks initially and then take stock at that point as to how long this situation may be going on for. The cancellation includes both Sunday gatherings and all our midweek groups and kids work.
It is at uncertain times like these that it is good to remind ourselves of the certainty of who we are and what we have in Christ. We can repeat with the Psalmist in Psalm 27, ‘The Lord is my light and my salvation – whom shall I fear?’
We understand that people may be anxious and lonely in the coming weeks and yet we have confidence in God, we know that in Christ we are eternally safe and we have peace, hope and comfort through good times and tough times.
Even though we’re shutting down our gatherings at the school, we’re still going to have plenty going on for us to gather together in the best way we can.
We’re going to live stream a service for everyone to watch. More details on what Sunday mornings will look like and info on how to dial in later on in the week.
We’re going to use video-conferencing to continue to have this prayer meeting as best we can.
We are going to be using video conferencing to continue our Growth Groups on a Wednesday night, we’ll carry on going through Hebrews together.
Hebrews 3:13 says, ‘encourage one another daily, as long as it is called 'Today,'
We need to be regularly in touch with one another, particularly those who are not living with other people. Please make a special effort to get in touch with others in church to offer support if even just to chat for a little bit.
You are welcome to email the church during this time. Please let us know if you would like to receive emails by using our contact form.
