Sunday Service Reminder

In light of all the recent changes to the government’s Covid regulations, here’s a reminder of how services will be operating at King’s from Sunday 25th July:



To summarise:

• We will continue with two meetings at each of our Catford, Downham and Lee venues. Each site will offer some level of kids’ provision depending on volunteers, space, etc.

• You will still need to pre-book for all our Sunday services and register on arrival. We will limit our auditorium capacity to 50% at each venue and will still have some spacing between chairs. Services will be just over an hour in length.

• We will ask you to continue to wear face masks. We are going to encourage singing in worship, but with masks on. While seated during the updates and sermon, you can take your mask off.


I’m really looking forward to being able to sing and worship together once again, albeit with masks on. There is nothing quite like joining with God’s people to praise and worship Him! This Sunday also sees the start of our summer sermon series, God of All Things. It will be based out of Andrew Wilson’s latest book, which I highly recommend and which you can order from here. Each week we will look at a different part of creation – earthquakes, rain, sun, rainbows - and discover what each reveals about the character of God.

Don’t forget to book your place if you intend to come to an in-person service this Sunday. I hope to see you there.

Update on Sunday Services

Following the government’s announcement on Monday about the latest Covid guidelines and restrictions, I am really looking forward to things opening up a bit more. I’m particularly delighted that singing will once again be permitted in churches after 19th July!

Here is a video update from me explaining what will be happening on Sundays at King’s from 25th July. You will also find a written summary of the key points below.



We believe it is important that we gather together as the people of God, but we want to do this in a measured and safe way, especially as not everyone has been vaccinated yet and Covid cases are rising.

Here are some of the revised guidelines we will be following in our services from Sunday 25th July and throughout August. We will review these at the end of August:

• We will continue with two meetings at each of our Catford, Downham and Lee venues. Each site will offer some level of kids’ provision depending on volunteers, space, etc.

• You will still need to pre-book for all our Sunday services and register on arrival. We will limit our auditorium capacity to 50% at each venue and will still have some spacing between chairs. Services will be just over an hour in length.

• We will ask you to continue to wear face masks. We are going to encourage singing in worship, but with masks on. While seated during the notices and sermon, you can take your mask off.

I have really missed singing at our in-person services and look forward to doing that together again from 26th July.

On a different note, I want to take this chance to say thank you again to all of you at King’s for continuing to be such a generous church. We want to model the stewardship of our resources in an open and transparent manner, and we will report in more detail to the church about our finances at our Vision Night. I have decided to postpone the Vision Night until the Autumn, which will hopefully enable more people to attend.

Important News

Last Sunday we announced that Phil and Sarah Varley believe God is calling them to move on from King’s. Phil and Sarah are dear friends, and our partnership in the Gospel has borne much fruit over the last 25 years. If you missed the video interview with them that we showed last week, I do encourage you to have a look below. Please pray for them as they seek God for their future.


Don’t forget that we have now resumed regular adult services on our Catford, Downham and Lee sites. If you are intending to come along, remember you still need to book a place for each person attending. Please check the website for more details.

I am taking some holiday now and will be back in a couple of weeks.

Recommended Reading

While speaking with Terry Virgo during the first lockdown last year, he told me he was taking the opportunity to write a book based out of the life of Moses. He clearly used the time well, and God’s Treasured Possession: Walk in the Footsteps of Moses has recently been published. I am so enjoying reading it, and I would love to recommend it to you all. It’s classic Terry, rooted to the Biblical narrative, confident in the sovereignty of God, with an appeal to respond to God with faith. With short, accessible chapters, it’s a great book for your personal devotions.
