WE ARE OPEN // WE ARE ONLINE // WE ARE CHURCH
There will be no plans for Sunday gatherings until at least September ’20.
Having done a Covid-19 risk assessment, our team report that our buildings are too small to hold services and maintain social distancing at the government required levels. And most of the schools, community centres and hotels are not available for hire for other locations.
Further, since the restrictions would require no singing, and no children’s church it wouldn’t be church as we know it. We will, therefore, wait a little longer before we get back together in that way.
HOWEVER – households can meet, (up to 8 persons indoors). So, FELLOWSHIP is possible.
So, for the month of August we would suggest that we start the following:
1. Growth groups can start physically meeting in homes where possible.
Bearing in mind that you will need to also have the meeting on zoom or Facebook since you can’t exceed 8 people present. You will also need to comply with current good health and safety practices. We will fully support you with materials and guidelines to make this possible.
2. Start making your house a friendship house/go to church online with others.
Either invite a family around to your house or you go to theirs for one of the Sunday services.
Enjoy food and fellowship at the same time whilst following guidelines (see here)
Such social events where a big key for our growth in the early part of our church journey.
3. Invite your unchurched friends to join with you in any of these relaxed and friendly opportunities.
We have been learning about soul purpose and discipleship in our Surge month. This is our primary objective and small groups are the best way to go.
We will continue to produce a quality church online experience for the weekend, with many other broadcast/input opportunities available during the week.
As we move into this next phase, let’s raise our faith once more to thrive and not just survive.

We Are Church
We need volunteers like never before to take a big personal risk and be willing to serve on the FRONTLINE.
- We need volunteers to go out and visit people and pray for people. We need volunteers to deliver food, medicines and care.
- We need volunteers to be willing to meet, greet and minister to people who feel the need to meet real people and who will want to turn up each day at our buildings.
Jesus touched the leper’s without fear, He ministered to the needy at every turn. Our buildings will be open every day with pastoral staff for those who wish to physically come for help.
We won’t be needing some of our Sunday service ministry teams for a while, but we do still need many volunteers to be on both the FRONTLINE and with our media team as we now reach even further into the world.
If you want to be a FRONTLINE volunteer please connect below:
We also need food and supplies like never before, and we will be using our legacy missionary fund to provide assistance to those in need, that fund needs funds.
To slow the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) the general public is being asked to stay at home as much as possible and avoid unnecessary social contact.
If you are in need of help of any kind, please do not hesitate to call in (0141 616 6777), email us (firstname.lastname@example.org), or just click the chat link!
