Our church is now open for worship on Sunday mornings, but we continue to have some measures in place to keep you safe when attending church. However, we no longer need you to book in advance if you want to join us, but we do ask that you wear your mask and maintain social distancing within the church buildings. The sermon and prayers continue to be available online if you can't make it to church or are not ready to come back yet.
Please check with group leaders to find out details regarding activities for young peoples' groups. Many of these are starting again from September.
If you or someone you know is in need of support or would like prayer at this time, please get in touch with the minister or contact us.
Teach Me To Pray
The Bible encourages us, "in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, to present you requests to God." (Philippians 4:6).
If you want to learn more about the prayer, the Prayer Course is a great resource. We ran the course at our church last year, and many of us found it helpful. The good news is that all the videos are available free online, so now might be a good time to tap into those to discover more about different aspects of prayer and rediscover how to pray.
The 24-7 Prayer website also has resources to prayer specifically about our response to the coronavirus.
If you'd like us to pray for you, please get in touch.
Are you in need of some daily hope during lockdown? Daily Hope is a new FREE telephone line for you to ring to hear comforting hymns, daily prayers and reflections. The number is 0800 804 8044. More information can be found here.
