Message from the Elders, 27th November: Reopening for in-person services & Acts of Worship
This coming Sunday, 29th November, our services will be exclusively online at 9:15am, 11:15am and 7pm. However, we're delighted to be able to reopen for in-person services on Sundays and for other forms of acts of worship once the current national restrictions end on 2nd December.
On Sunday 6th December, we will have in-person Sunday Services, with Bible Workshop provision for children at 9:15am and 11:15am. God willing, Adrian Reynolds (Associate National Director, FIEC) will be joining us to open up Christmas from the book of Jeremiah! At our 7pm Service, we will be focussing on 'Compassion at Christmas', seeing how ministries of mercy at home and overseas play a vital role in the kingdom of God. Watch the film below to see more about our Christmas Appeal 2020. It's essential for you to prebook for any service you would like to attend in person. Please note that bookings for the 9:15am and 11:15am services close at noon the preceding Friday.
Bookings are now open for our December and Christmas Services in the first half of the month. Whilst most services are also in-person, Carols from Narnia on 20th December (4pm), Christmas Eve Midnight Reflection (11:15pm) and our Christmas Day Morning Service (10:15am) will be livestreamed/premiered via youtube/facebook only.
We're planning in-person 9:15am and 11:15am services for 27th Dec and 3rd Jan, and will release the details and bookings for this in a couple of weeks' time.
Whilst some of our usual Christmas events are not able to take place, we are delighted to be able to offer a creative, walk-through act of worship which follows Covid-secure guidelines for places of worship. See below for more details about The Narnia Experience!
As we look forward to brighter days in 2021, and as we pray for all those working hard in the NHS, public health, vaccine roll-out, and many other areas of life, may our eyes be lifted to an even more wonderful horizon:
'...because of the tender mercy of our God, by which the rising sun will come to us from heaven to shine on those living in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the path of peace.' (Luke 1:78-79)
Yours in the tender mercy of our God,
Lead Minister, on behalf of the Elders.
