Following UK government and Church of England guidance, all of our activities have been suspended. This includes Sunday services, Messy Church, Noah’s Ark, Tea & Chat, Lunch Club, Impact, Youth Group, Bible studies and more. Many of the hall activities have stopped as well. Christ Church is now very quiet. This is a very strange and anxious time for many. Below are some ways we can support each other.
We’ve setup a ‘Buddy System’ to help those who need to self-isolate and those who have fallen ill with the virus with prayer and daily phone calls. Anyone can sign up for this (data protection means we need your written consent) to offer and receive prayer and friendship in a time of need. If you would to be a part of this, please email me at vicarATchristchurchcov.net.
We are offering a audio version of Sunday morning worship which will be sent out to all those who subscribe to ‘Occasional Devotions’. If you don’t already receive daily reflections, click ‘subscribe’ on this website. The first broadcast will be emailed to you on Saturday in time for Mothering Sunday and features some familiar voices.
In the coming weeks, we hope to introduce other ways for us to be a community of love and support with Christ in the centre. This will be challenging for us as we are so accustomed to meeting in the building called Christ Church. We are of course, much more than a building, and with Christ still at our centre, we can expect surprising blessings in the months to come.
