Coronavirus Update

20th March 2020


This is to provide you all with an update of what is happening following

the Government’s request to close all places of worship because of the threat of the Coronavirus.


We will not be having any Services at present and so need to find new ways to worship God and support each other. I will be in St John’s at 10am each Sunday to pray both for those on our prayer list and for any other requests forwarded to me. I can publish this week by week if it is a help. I would encourage you all ta take time out between 10 and 11am each Sunday to make your own prayers and thanksgivings.


We are exploring using other mediums to communicate including the St John’s website and Instagram account and of course the telephone and email. Do let me know of any ideas you may have. The Standing Committee of the PCC met this week and will meet again regularly to monitor what is going on. Take to heart this promise from God:


Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified .. for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.’ Deuteronomy 31 v 6.


Every blessing Nigel
