Resumption of Church Worship Services


I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD. – Psalm 122:1

We are delighted to announce that we will resume church worship services on Sunday 9th August.

This follows the government’s announcement on 17th July 2020 when they ended the legal ban on church services as a result of Cornavirus legislation.

After 20 weeks of lockdown and spending each Sunday at home, we are delighted for the opportunity to return to worship the Lord together as a fellowship.

Having said that, we note that in order to comply with the legal requirements of social distancing measures, our current building was simply not suited for this purpose and left us with near impossible challenges.

We are thankful however that the Lord seems to have provided us Providentially with a solution.

For over a year now we have been assisting the nearby Rock Baptist Church in holding monthly services. These services also along with ours had to be cancelled in March 2020 due to lockdown.

However with thanks to members at the Rock Baptist, we are grateful for the opportunity to temporarily use their building as a suitable place for worship while the social distancing measures remain in place.

The Rock Baptist Church is a much larger building to our own and will work much better as we seek to implement the 2 metre social distancing requirements and worship the Lord together safely.

We will be posting detailed guidance to those of our own fellowship this week and will publish further details online of what to expect and how to reserve a space in the near future.

For those who will be unable to join us on this date, we will still be posting online recordings, which will be available after the Sunday service as soon as possible.

In the meantime, do be in prayer for us as a fellowship as we prepare for our first return to gathered worship and feel free to contact us if you have any further questions at this time.
