THE BELOW ADVICE IS IN RELATION TO BROMLEY CHRISTIAN CENTRE
First of all, it was great to see so many in our services last Sunday. I really sensed a spirit of faith and trust in God as we fellowshipped together. Many also joined our services through Facebook Live. God is with us in these uncertain times.
As anticipated things are now changing quickly regarding Covid-19.
Last night the Prime Minister issued new Government guidance on social distancing for everyone in the UK, and protecting older people and vulnerable adults includes specifically that we all should…
Avoid large gatherings, and gatherings in smaller public spaces such as pubs, cinemas, restaurants, theatres, bars, clubs
Avoid gatherings with friends and family. Keep in touch using remote technology such as phone, internet, and social media
Therefore the right and responsible thing to do is to suspend our centralised group meetings until the advice changes. However, we are already making plans to ensure that we can continue to gather "virtually" using video and online tools.
I can tell you there will be a live stream of our Service this Sunday at 9AM and we are also working on a plan to deliver prayer meetings online.
Our intention is that we will also be increasing the amount of emails, website updates and social media posts that we send to help encourage, support and motivate our church through these unprecedented times of uncertainty.
We know that God is Good and He is in Control. We do not need to fear, He is with us!
If you need support (including practical help with groceries etc if you are one of those who needs to self-isolate), please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have Prayer Requests, please contact us at email@example.com with any requests.
We also encourage you remain connected to your Life Groups.
Psalm 37 v 3 says, "Trust in the Lord and do good. Then you will live safely in the land and prosper."
So I believe we need to see this as an opportunity for increased faith and for the church to see God's Kingdom prevail and expand, despite these unprecedented times.
