While we as a church are thankful for the technology that allows us members to have regular Sunday and midweek services, we long for the time when we can once again gather together in the chapel. The online services cannot replace, or ever be a substitute for the gathered church. Not only are we physically apart, but the present situation means that our outreach and visitation ministries are not continuing for they cannot be conducted through technology. Even so, this is all of the Lord for His good purposes. It also causes us to reflect on the Lord’s goodness and kindness to this country as we have long enjoyed such freedoms, while helping us all the more to pray for our fellow believers who due to persecution and/or censorship continue to endure way beyond anything we at this present time experience.
Due to the present health issues caused by the Coronavirus all services and meetings at the chapel have been suspended. Although our church members are able to view and listen to online services and teaching, these are a provision for them alone so that the church can still meet and worship to some extent from afar during this time.
There will be no Bible study this Thursday as a Church Meeting is necessary in view of the present COVID-19 virus situation.
The whole time will be given to prayer. Bible studies will resume next Thursday, 14th.
As it is our annual prayer week there will be no Bible study this Thursday on the 31st.
During these two months there will be no Bible study. The whole time will be given over to prayer.
As we have done for many years now, our 17:00 hrs teaching service will be shorter and devotional during the summer months in order to allow the church to engage in evangelistic outreach from about 17:30 outside and around the chapel. This will begin with Sunday 28th July. The morning gospel service is unaffected.
As this Thursday falls in our annual outreach week there will be no Thursday Bible study service.
There is no public service on this Thursday due to there being a Special Church Meeting for members.
The public services over these two weeks will be as follows:
Good Friday (19th) Gospel service at 10:30.
Easter Sunday 21st services as usual (10:30 & 17:00).
Thursday 25th Prayer meeting.
