From our minister:
Following guidelines from the government and the Baptist Union it has become necessary, along with all other places of worship, to close all church activities as part of the effort to stem the spread of coronavirus. We deeply regret this decision but feel that it is the wise thing to do.
We are currently organising a Pastoral Care list in order that we can care for one another should the need arise.
Please contact Graham if you or someone that you know is in need of assistance or if you self isolate or fall ill. We can then pray for you and assist you
We are also organising the recording of a mini service/ reflection available on our website (podcasts) or by CD. If you would like to receive this please let me know.
I will also send regular e mails and updates so that we can keep in touch .
The church is the family of God’s people and so we should care for one another in whatever way we can-If one part suffers , every part suffers with it…. (1 Cor 14:26b)
As people of faith we are also called to be salt and light in a dark world and so I hope we will be able to be witnesses of God’s love and hope to those around us, drawing on his power and strength.
The following verses may be helpful to reflect upon
Psalm 55: 22 Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous slip.
Matthew 6: 31-34 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
