Following the Prime Minister’s statement on 23rd June, the government has now issued guidance on the safe use of places of worship from 4th July. This guidance was published yesterday, 29th June. We are examining what steps we need to take, how we can safely reopen, and making appropriate plans. We will update you as soon as possible on when and how we will be reopening for church services.
In the meantime, we will continue to have church online. We hope that you will join us for Sunday live streamed services at 10:30, Wednesday evening services, Pastor Robert’s Daily Devotions, Jump Street Mini-bites (ages 2-5s) and Warehouse TV (ages 6-11).
We will be providing Live Stream Services, Daily Life Devotions, children’s and youth activities, resources and videos.
The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government has published guidance stating that places of worship are permitted to live stream services without an audience. We thank God for this provision and the opportunity to join together in this way.
Jesus came to bridge the divide not only between us and God but also between one another. Pastor Robert and Virginia and the senior leadership team have been deeply grieved to see how George Floyd lost his life and the evil of racism and discrimination. As followers of Jesus we are all called upon to be examples of His love; to be part of the answer for the world today and to join hands with our black brothers and sisters against racism.
We realise that for many people this may raise painful memories from events in the past, or from more recent incidents, and feelings of hurt, anger or injustice linked to racism and discrimination. We want you to know that we are here for you. We want to listen, to stand with you in prayer and support you however we can. If you would like support and to talk to a pastor, just text the word CONNECT to 66777.
We are very grateful to be part of a multi-racial congregation where we see how wonderful it is to love and respect each other.
