It is now a well-known fact that we are closing all our church buildings as of March 21, 2020 for a period of four  weeks. This is part of the fight to beat the Coronavirus, COVID-19.
During this period, we are asking all our members to follow the government guidelines outlined below:
1. Wash hand regularly with soap and water for 20 seconds
2. Refrain from touching your face, nose and mouth.
3. Cough into your sleeve or into a paper towel
4. Maintain adequate social distancing
5. Self-isolate for seven days if you display mild flu-like symptoms. If things get worse call 111
6. Restrict travel to only the essential
7. If you are 70 and over, stay at home.
More information can be found at https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/
During this period, the pastoral team will be seeking to keep in touch with you via telephone and or the social media available. We want to ensure that your spiritual needs and your connectivity to your church is maintained. We will also seek to keep in touch on a regular basis.
Just in case you have needs – shopping, collecting your meds etc., we invite to call Pastor Esson or any of the elders and we will respond as best as we can. No one needs to feel that no
Now having said all of that- your pastor wants you to know that
we have a heavenly Father who cares. He loves you and you are under His watchful protection. So, after we have done all we can – we trust in God to cover us.
Isaiah 26:20 (NKJV)
Come, my people, enter your chambers, And shut your doors behind you; Hide yourself, as it were, for a little moment, Until the indignation is past.
