We are all aware that we are in strange times due to the Coronavirus outbreak – isolation, quarantine are all terms many of us have never been affected by before. But we must keep trusting our Lord – He holds the future in His hands. As a Diaconate, we feel it is necessary to make changes to the Church activities. We have prayed about this, discussed the situation to decide what we need to be doing to secure the well being of our congregation and community. Although we cannot guarantee nobody will be affected by the virus, we can ensure we do all we can to assist avoiding it.
The Church building will temporarily remain closed but Church does continue, albeit in a different way to normal. Jon is recording his sermons each week and you will find the link to these on the Sunday Services page of this website. They are also available on the Church Facebook page and You Tube by 10.30 am.
We have also set up a ‘Zoom’ meeting each Tuesday morning at 10.00 am for a time of prayer together and Friday morning at 11.00 am for a ‘Coffee Morning’. Please e-mail Joyce Stammers stammers024@gmail. com if you would like the link to be included in these meetings.
The Dave Scott-Morgan event was postponed, maybe until next year.
Pastoral care will continue to be available but mainly by telephone rather than visiting. We are all vulnerable. Jon, is the only one on the Leadership team in the ‘under 70s’ age group so please make Jon your first contact, whatever the need. If you just need to speak to somebody, please feel free to phone any of the Deacons. Please don’t live in solitude – communicate by telephone with each other – and your neighbours!
We will keep you updated with any further news.
“Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever!” (Ephesians 3 v 20-21)
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” (Romans 15 v 13)
Every blessing to you all.
