Update from 26/3/2020
Well, hello, long time no see, literally.
We hope you all enjoyed last Sunday’s services. A lot of new skills were learnt, and we shall be honing things for this next week, so, we hope you will join us again. We may not quite be up to Joe Wicks’ numbers, but we were heartened by the numbers of people who had tuned in live to the morning service, and the numbers who watched it after the event.
I can’t speak for you, but for where we were, we certainly felt that we were taking part in something much bigger, and that we were still part of a larger Community. Certainly, we found the commute much easier, a lot less setting up and the refreshments were really quick!
Obviously, this isn’t supposed to become church, or be church, as, this is only temporary, but it does serve as a good reminder that wherever 2 or 3 are gathered together, Jesus is in our midst. Church is wherever we are, as the flood reminded us in November.
We have also begun to put some other content up on the YouTube page so, click on the link, and you will be able to see what we’ve been up to. This is also where you’ll find this Sunday’s services.
Tonight’s Lent course is going to appear on the above link, like last week, but a little later, as we’re going to run the course Live, via Zoom. We’re doing this to allow for some interaction. If you don’t get our update emails, but would like to join us, please let us know and we can forward you the details.
You will hopefully now be aware that the church has had to be locked up. We have asked 1 person to look after the building, by popping down occasionally. If we haven’t asked you, then, you are not that person. Even if you have a key, please do not venture down there. It sends the wrong message to the village and to other church members. If you think of a task that may need doing (no, grass-cutting doesn’t count), then let the office know and we’ll pass it on.
If you would like to receive the update emails that we’re sending out to church, then, please do email the office on firstname.lastname@example.org and we can add you, and send you a GDPR form for our records.
We have now been able to allocate almost everyone into a small group, but if this is something you feel you would like to be a part of, please do email the office.
Similarly if you become aware of anyone who may be struggling, do, please, let us know so that we can put them in contact with someone.
And, the office does have a phone (07961 891168). It will be with Diane, who is going to working every morning at other times, it will be switched off and so, you can leave a message. Emma will be working Thursdays and Fridays. However, the best way to get a response will be to email, as we can both access those on the days we work. I hope that makes sense.
We have been so touched by people’s obvious care for one another, and would urge everyone to keep doing what they can do whilst they are able to do it.
