We will be live-streaming our Sunday services at 4pm each week during this period of reduced movement and gatherings as the UK government tries to slow the spread of the covid-19 virus. Please join us and be encouraged by God's word.

Practical or prayer needs
Please email us if you have any practical needs like shopping or medicine deliveries or if you would like someone to pray with you over the phone.
Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another - Hebrews 10:23-25)
Wisdom from the past
For help on how to handle this unprecedented pandemic, Ash Cunningham (Head of UCCF's Theology Network) has composed the following summary of Martin Luther's advice to Christians during an outbreak of Bubonic plague in 1527, which I hope offers some comfort and encouragement in the days ahead:
• Employ good hygiene
• Do not shy from medicine
• Do not put others at risk
• Avoid places where you don't need to be... but if your neighbour is in need – you DO need to be there.
• Do not fear death, but do not court danger – the Christian is fearless because they follow the death-defeating Christ, not because they follow a cult of fearlessness and folly.
