Dear Church Family,

As you will have heard from the news, it has been recommended that we suspend all public worship services for the foreseeable future. This will come as a blow to all of us and will change the way we worship together and care for each other. However, with some forethought and creativity we can find new ways to maintain our spiritual lives and sense of community.

Over the next few days, Linda and Lynn will be phoning everyone on our church list to ask you some general questions about patterns of relationships and support that already exist within the church family. We would like to build on this and extend the way we can both give and receive support from each other. Once we get a better picture of what is already happening, we will then be forming a phone chain for prayer and pastoral care which will ensure that everyone is being contacted regularly and knows that they can ask for help when needed.

It is important to state that all information shared with us would be confidential and not shared without your permission.

There will be more information coming out soon about how we are going to make sermons and other spiritual resources available.

Please be assured of our daily prayers and commitment to helping us stay connected with each other and with God during these challenging times,

In the love of Christ

David, Lynn and Linda
