COVID-19 - CORONA VIRUS UPDATE
In the unprecedented times we find our country and world in, it is good to remind ourselves, that our hope is in the LORD, the maker of heaven and earth. He is the Rock on which we stand and in whom we trust, even if we have no idea what is going on and why things are currently as they are. You can be sure, that this will present us with many opportunities to learn more of God, how to love and depend on Him, what it means in practical terms to love one another and how we can love our neighbour - perhaps like we've not been able to demonstrate before.
A reminder of our motto card for 2020 - Romans 15 v 5 - 6 - of the endurance and encouragement that God gives through His word so we might have hope... leading to the same attitude as that of Christ Jesus.
So it is with a sad and heavy heart - but believing this is the right thing to do, all midweek activities within the church will be cancelled forthwith and will not reopen until we as a church leadership team think it is the right thing to do based on Public Health England guidelines and government advice.
We are also cancelling all the Sunday morning and evening services and trusting that God will be kind and gracious to us and bless us in ways that we did not think possible as we find ourselves sharing with one another via letter, email, phone, text about how God is being good to us at this strange time.
We are continuing to look at how we as a church can fellowship and encourage one another in the coming weeks and there will be further communications from me on behalf of the Elders and Deacons, but as I finish can I urge to pray for one another, for those on the frontline in the NHS, for those in government and their advisors with the responsibility of leading the country and for those across the globe who have lost loved ones and find themselves grieving in isolation. Pray for your church leaders too, as they seek to lead and those in our fellowship who have workplace responsibilities that require wisdom and strength to lead aright.
A prayer to finish...
Peace to the brothers and sisters, and love with faith from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Grace to all who love our Lord Jesus Christ with an undying love. Ephesians 6: 23 - 24
