Like all of you, we are watching closely how things develop around us and pray for God’s guidance and wisdom in making good decisions.
At this point, we plan to proceed as follows:
Sunday Service will be on as normal but please take notice of government guidelines. (Wash hands frequently and with soap, avoid any unnecessary physical contact…)
Tea and coffee will be served in disposable cups and we ask you to put them straight in a bin.
If you are unwell or are required to self-isolate, please get in touch with the Elders or the pastoral care team. We will add you to the prayer list and help where we can!
We would also be in touch with ways you might be able to help others – this could simple be to chat on the phone with those already feeling lonely and dreading the idea of even less human contact.
In all this we do trust in the Lord, and still come before him to worship each Sunday. If you are unable to worship with us, as usual the sermon is posted on our website, and we will be investigating the recording/ livestreaming of future Sunday worship.
We aim to keep our Facebook page and church website home page up to date.
German Food Night
Several people have inquired if the German Food Night will go ahead as planned. The general impression we get is that people are a bit anxious and we feel we cannot quite deliver the enjoyable evening with good food and good company we envision.
We do not have an identified risk within the church family but in light of advice and this not being an essential event we have decided to postpone for nowand find a new date when things are clearer. If you would like to have your ticket cost reimbursed, please connect with Frank.
Likewise, the Elders have discussed the potential benefits and drawbacks for the participants as well as the youth leaders and have asked them to postpone the Youth weekend for the time being also. They will be in touch with parents once they have more details and a new date.
In all these things we look to the Lord and aim to be a blessing to those around us.
