IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATE
16th March 2020
Scripture tells us in Romans 13 that we should respect our Government and follow the guidelines they set out. Clearly the people ‘in the know’ are doing their level best to keep the UK safe, and in this instance and according to this scripture, we believe the right thing to do is to comply.

So in light of the current situation re the Coronavirus, guidelines were released today by HM Government to advise against ‘social contact’ including pubs, clubs, theatres and restaurants – in other words, places where many people gather together. In our interpretation, this would include church gatherings, therefore we have taken the decision - albeit reluctantly - to suspend all of our regular meetings – effective immediately. To be clear, this includes Sunday morning and evening meetings, Destiny Youth, Afternoon Tea Club, weekly courses and the monthly prayer meeting.
No one knows how long this situation could last - suggestions are up to 3 months - but currently we are anticipating being closed for 4 weeks!
We will, however, be closely monitoring what the Government is saying during this time and keep you updated re our position on this website and all our social media platforms.
The Church office will be open as usual and emails checked regularly should you need to contact us.
OK Church, so this is not a time to retreat in fear or batten down the hatches, but perhaps a great opportunity to think outside the box, connecting with Him and one another (in small, controlled familiar groups) finding creative ways to reach out to our neighbours and wider community – believing that God can bring so much good out of this challenging time.
We are family and as such, we will come through this stronger. In the meantime, we urge you all to press into God – read His Word, pray, worship, watch good teaching on YouTube etc etc and strengthen yourself in Him!
We love you and are always here for you.
