Events move quickly these days, don't they? Just last week I was telling you all on this blog about our plan to open up for in-person services again. Sadly, before we’d even had our first meeting last Sunday, the government announced that we would be going into another national lockdown. So, even though the in-person services last week went well, and were enjoyed by all who attended, we will not be able to open up on Sundays for now. But of course, our online services will be continuing, and I encourage you to keep on joining us each week.
Though it is frustrating to be in lockdown again, I believe it is the right decision. Here is a brief video message from me as we go into our second lockdown of the year.
As we enter this second lockdown, I want to encourage you to keep looking up – keep looking to God and drawing near to Him. Let’s keep looking out for one another – making phonecalls, sending texts and emails, particularly to those who are alone. And let’s also look ahead – to Christmas and the hope of better times as spring approaches. Even though Christmas may look a little different this year, the truths we celebrate during this season remain the same. Plans for our online carol services are already taking shape, and I look forward to telling you more about these in the weeks to come.
