Enjoy our short act of worship on video
We have had a Christmas update from our Missionary Partners in Nepal, Joel and Fiona Hafvenstein
You can read their moving and inspiring message here
Please remember Joel, Fiona and their family in your prayers
Just a thought to ponder on this day
when what wethought could never happen, has
and public worship has been suspended:
Christ’s Church is not closed!
The doors may be shut and locked
the lights out in the building up the street
But the Church isn’t closed.
We may be told to stay at home, self isolate,
We may be ill or too frail to come,
We may be disillusioned with the institution, or with God
But the Church isn’t closed
The Church cannot close because it is not a building.
The church is YOU, and me, and every child of God
Who feels the tug of His love and senses His presence,
Even in the darkness, even in loneliness,
Even in fear or sorrow.
The Church is open, though the building is closed.
It will stay open as long as His children stay open to God,
And seek his presence wherever they may be
This day Christ says to you,
“I am with you always”.
So take this moment to enjoy his companionship,
To be still, to give thanks and to hand over your cares
And know that you do so in company with God’s family,
not only in our building but all over the world.
