A pastoral letter from the ministry team

To the our brothers and sisters in Christ

The first thing I want to say is, you are in our prayers daily. We are concerned for your physical health, your emotional health and your spiritual health. Personally I’d like to say its easy to get overwhelmed in times like this, its easy to shift from feeling faithful to fearful in a blink. Please don’t beat yourself up we are in a period of life, that for most of us, we have never experienced. We know the impact of cyclone and flood but nothing on this global scale. 

Let me share a few first thoughts and steps with you.

First, if its all getting too much please call us, call a friend – be honest.

Sunday services are suspended

Friends we have been directed to suspend our usual Sunday services. We are taking this step to suspend our “gathered church” in favour of what we will call the ‘scattered church’. Plans are in process to meet is smaller groups using the appropriate guidelines – it is here that we will keep connected with one another and support one another in worship, bible study, and prayer. The fundamental reason for this move is that this is how we believe we can ‘love our neighbour’ well. The other way we are going to connect is on Sunday 22nd at 10.30am we will meet online via Facebook live. If you click here it will take you there and you can follow us so that when it comes to 10.30am there we will be together. I’ll be writing to you all soon either by email or traditional mail. Expect a phone call from me or one of our church leadership.
