CHANGES

In response in light of the latest advice we are postponing all church gatherings both on Sundays and groups until further notice. 

 

Whilst Sundays are an important aspect of our life as a church we can still work to our vision during this time of uncertainty. We have uploaded a video regarding our plans and you can see this here.

 

Our vision is to grow a family that

  • Loves God

  • loves one another

  • loves the world 

 

Love God:

 

Being at home gives us all an opportunity. We could go one of two directions. Switch off and begin Binge watching every series we can find or switch on and look to deepen our relationship with God. 

 

  1. To help you grow and deepen your relationship with God in the next few weeks whilst we are unable to gather, this week we will be starting a series on the Psalms 'knowing God in every season'.  We are planning on releasing a recorded video for mid week and a live meeting every Sunday morning at 10am and click ‘watch now’.

 

  1. We will also be creating and sending out resources for you to use in your family life if you have your children and/or youth at home. You can find these resources on the Sunday live stream video under the ‘notes’ tab. 

 

  1. We will be sending out prayer requests and an update each week in the form of a Friday blog.

 

Love One another:

 

  1. Are you over 70 or living with an underlying health condition? We want to support you through regular contact and dropping off anything you may need if you are unable to leave home. *Sign up here*

  2. Do you have time to help phone or support others? If you want to take part in serving those who are in need of support please sign up here.

  3. We are creating contact groups to temporarily replace existing groups. This will provide you with an opportunity to connect with a smaller group of people over the next few weeks - we are still working through this and will send out information shortly.

  4. Need to call the office? We are currently still open Monday-Friday 9-4pm. But if you can’t get through, leave a message which will be emailed to one of the team to follow up.


 

Love the world:

 

  1. It's time for the church to step out in love to those around us. Consider how you can be a witness with your colleagues, when you are out at the supermarket and with your neighbours. We share the kingdom God with the

    1. Words we speak

    2. Works we do

    3. Wonders we expect

  2. We are printing some ‘help your neighbour’ cards - we will let you know once they are available.

  3. We would love video testimonies to share with the church on our website of what God is doing in your life through this time. 

 

As we walk through this together, let’s be prayerful, hopeful and full of faith for what God will do in us and through us.


We look forward to seeing you online this Sunday at 10am!
