Welcome to St Andrew's Wallace Green and Lowick

12.5.20

After many weeks in lockdown, the most recent advice from the UK government is that it will be some time yet before public worship and other face-to-face church activities will be possible. This doesn’t mean that our life together has come to a standstill, only that it is, at present, taking a different form. We are regularly producing online worship videos, please see below, and also hosting online gatherings as advertised here.

                                                           

May 2020

From the Minister:

Dear Friends,

We are now almost two months into the ‘lockdown’ brought about by the coronavirus and there is, as yet, no definite end in sight. The most that the Prime Minister was able to offer recently, was a staged loosening of the restrictions that we are living under. If, in this strange time, we are living for the moment when life will get back to normal, then it seems we are destined for a lengthy period of frustration. Perhaps, then, we need to approach our present experience from a different perspective. Typically, we think of each part of our lives as a journey, the purpose of which is to reach a destination. But maybe, in our current circumstances, a more productive way is to see each day as an end in itself. Rather than worrying about the indeterminate future, we can instead focus on living as gratefully and productively as we can in the here and now. Jesus once said, “Don’t worry about tomorrow”. This is a hard saying, especially for those who fear a difficult and even painful future. However, when the days ahead are uncertain, as they are just now, the best thing we can do is to ask God to help us live one day at a time.

God bless,

Adam
