Last week I promised that I would give you an update on our plans for services going forward. You hardly need me to tell you that the environment we are operating in is complicated and changing. We have been thinking and praying about how to make the church as available as possible for times of worship whilst following government and Church of England guidelines. You might appreciate that some of that guidance is easier to follow than others! I do have good news; there are new ways for us to congregate and I’ll explain those in just a moment.
First though, let me emphasise what I said last week. Whatever happens, we will be continuing the live stream 10am transmissions until at least September 6th. We are doing that to give as many people as possible the chance to engage and fellowship.
That is staying the same - so what is going to change?
Next Sunday – July 12 – in addition to the 10am transmission, we will be holding a service at 11.15am where up to 60 people can attend. It will be a short, simple service – with a reading, sermon and prayers. It will be necessary to book a space for this service, this can be done via the front page of our website or HERE.
Looking ahead, there is more that we have in mind to increase the ministry opportunities and the number of people that can attend but we are taking things one week at a time for now. There will be a further update on the Thursday email.
What is vital is that you look out for church communications because things may change quite quickly. Each week, I will update you but please continue to check the church web site and especially any emails we send out.
Finally, please do continue to keep us in your prayers that God will lead us and guide us as we move forward together as a community, to be the people of His blessing.
With my prayers
