We are all living in unprecedented times and we all have to adapt quickly to new daily routines.

It is especially important that we maintain a sense of community in these coming weeks and months. Our Church is here for you. We want to help you. Please get in touch with us if we can help you. It’s so important that we keep in touch with our entire congregation.

God helping us on Wednesday evenings at 8pm we would encourage you to stop for 1 hour that we might follow the messages uploaded to our church YouTube channel and then join together in prayer from our homes. We may be apart but we are one in Christ.

Friends, we are living in very uncertain days and we need to pray much. In these unprecedented times of social isolation, we lean wholeheartedly on the Lord, as churches, as families, and as individual believers.

We commend to you the joy of regular family worship, the reading of God’s Word and prayer.

For those who are most isolated and living on their own, that they would remember the words of the Psalmist: ‘When I am afraid, I will put my trust in you. In God, whose Word I praise in God I have put my trust, I shall not be afraid’ (Psalm 56:3-4).

We do not know how the situation will develop in the UK or globally, but we, as the people of God, acknowledge our Lord’s sovereignty and goodness.

We pray for the churches, for our Government, those working on the front line in our Health Service and blue light emergency services, for the nation, and for the world, that the Lord will have mercy.

We pray that the church will thrive and be a blessing to an on looking fearful world. In the next month let’s commit to calling on the Lord to have mercy and to build his church according to his steadfast promise.
‘Oh LORD, revive your work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make it known; in wrath remember mercy (Habakkuk 3:1-2).

Many of us may struggle with deep anxiety and fear at this time. God’s Word provides comfort and exhorts us to fix our eyes on Christ.

‘Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus’ (Philippians 4:6-7).

Rev George Speers
