Following the decision by the Government to enforce a national lockdown, advice received from the Baptist Union which strongly encourages churches to close in the short term, and following much thought and prayer, the church will not be open for public worship from today (6th January 2021) until further notice.
This also applies to the weekly prayer meetings held at The Hub.
Please remember we are still worshipping together as a church albeit online only for a while.
The Hope Centre will continue to function at this time, carrying out the vital work of supporting rough sleepers and the most vulnerable in our community.
We will, of course, prayerfully review this decision as a team on a regular basis, to ensure that we can open the church again for socially distanced worship as soon as it is safe to do so.
The ways in which we are able to provide pastoral care remain unaffected. If you have a pastoral need of any description please do not hesitate to contact Paul, Richard, Mark or the church office in the first instance.
We have an amazing God who knows the plans he has for us and therefore we can declare, He is still God, He is still in control, and the church that bears his Son’s name will worship him Sunday by Sunday no matter what. We need therefore to trust in his timing, rely on his promise, wait on his answers, believe in his miracles, rejoice in his goodness, and relax in his presence.
