As we enter this new time of national lockdown, I am aware that it is full of different emotions and messages. Our approach as a church, is one of calmness in the storm, hopeful and secure in our God. As the situation moves forward, we are always endeavouring to adapt and change, to the needs and guidance that there is. We are a living, praying community.
So with lots of different information flying around, let me just clarify how we are moving forward at this time.
While we are grateful that the government has allowed places of worship to open, after careful consideration and prayer, with the increase in the ‘R’ rate being significant in the areas around us, and pressure on our NHS, in line with the guidance from our Bishop, and other guidance, the PCC have decided to hold a live stream service only at this time and not ‘in person’. We feel that this is the safest thing to do for our community and to play our part at this time.
Sundays at 10.30, there will be our live stream service and we encourage you to join in with us from home. I am excited about our new series from the book of Philippians, and I encourage you to take a chance to have a read through it.
While not everything is the same as March, we are aware that some may be finding themselves in need or just need a friendly voice on the phone to pray with them. We are here and please do contact us via the church office (e-mail or phone).
It is great to hear stories of where you are reaching out to each other at this time, and can I encourage you to keep continuing to do so.
Paul reminds us in 1 Corinthians 13: these three remain, faith, hope and love. Let us continue to love each other, our neighbour and to be rooted and steadfast in prayer, sharing the hope that we have.
