“God, who made the world and everything in it … does not live in human temples”

(Acts 17.24)

From the Minister:

Dear Friends,

These are strange, difficult and frightening times we are living through. Most of us feel overwhelmed and unsure how we are going to cope with many weeks and months of staying at home. We’ll miss direct human contact, our ordinary, everyday activities and the chance to worship together in our beautiful building. It’s encouraging to remember, however, that God isn’t tied to one place and that wherever we are, we can ask God to help us cope and we can feel ourselves part of God’s loving family.

During this time, let’s continue our habits of worship – there are many ways we can do this. Through caring for one another, by staying in touch through telephone, by praying for each other, or by offering what practical help we can - please do get in touch with me if you need assistance with the delivery of shopping or in some other way (332787). Our worship can also include making use of the many resources that there are on the internet, which help us to feel close to God and to others. Over the next weeks and months, I will post links to useful sites and activities on our website. This is a journey of exploration for me, as it will be for many of you, so please let me know if there are any resources that you have found helpful, so that these can be passed on to others.

This is going to be a rough time, but as the song Rena recently played says “Let there be love shared among us”.

Be safe, Adam
