COVID-19 Response Updates
This change in the way we do church has shifted us from being the church “gathered” to the church “scattered”. It has brought unprecedented opportunity to serve and love others in tangible ways in a time of real need.
I encourage you to take hold of this opportunity in two ways. Firstly, be seeking ways to serve your own friends, colleagues, neighbours and community. Give them a call to check-in. Find out what you can do to help – remembering to do so with the appropriate hygiene practices in place to care for both yourself and those you are helping.
In a similar way, we would love you to be part of the church community team who will be doing these things for people: making calls to those in isolation, assisting with food delivery (either by shopping or providing meals for others), praying and/or being available to offer other assistance that might be required. To join this team, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. or go to our online form here.
A Flourishing Community of Hope
We continue to hold our vision that we are becoming a flourishing community of hope. It may look and feel a bit different to how we might have imagined it just a few months ago, but it is exciting to be seeking God’s heart for us, together.
Please make sure we have your updated details, so we can communicate well with you. If you become sick or are feeling isolated, please let us know so we can call to check-in. And, of course, if you have questions, please let us know – email@example.com. is the email address to use.
Our hope rests on Jesus and on the knowledge of God’s love. Nothing can take that away or change it. We may be living in circumstances that feel different than we have experienced before, but we continue to live in the light of eternity and eternal love given by the Father and available through his Spirit.
