I’m sure aware, our Prime Minister, Boris Johnson briefed the nation on the latest measures that the
Government would like churches to take to help manage the national Coronavirus situation. Amongst other things it was requested that all social gatherings and social contact be avoided.
As believers we are called to submit to the authorities God has placed over us and so, with immediate effect we will be cancelling all meetings in their current format. These include Sunday mornings, socials, prayer meetings and the membership course until further notice.
Whilst we will not be meeting together in our usual venue, we are meeting together using the technology available to us. We are currently using a software called Zoom, which you can download onto your phone or your computer – just use the link here: https://zoom.us/
We then send out regular invites through What’s App or via email. If you would like to join us on a Sunday, all you have to do is email email@example.com and request a Zoom invitation.
What you can expect?
We’ll email you an invitation that looks like this:

The humble home has been the location of many-a-church gathering since the early church began. The Apostle Paul writes about the church that met in the home of Pricilla and Aquila on a number of occasions (see Romans 16:4-5, 1 Cor. 16:19). In fact, the early church would often meet in large, more central locations, such as the temple courts (Acts 2:46) or the hall of Tyrannus (Acts 19:9) as well as in each other’s homes.
What are H.O.M.E Groups?
H.O.M.E Groups are a great opportunity for us as a church to demonstrate our devotion to God, our devotion to each other and our devotion to sharing the good news of Jesus’ death and resurrection; within the context of smaller mid-week meetings in people’s homes.
Our blueprint for this is found in the Bible and the example of the early church. Acts 2:42-47 says this, ‘They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favour of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.’
If you’re interested in joining a mid-week group why not come along on a Sunday and speak to one of the leadership team.
