GCW CORONAVIRUS UPDATE
You will not fear the terror of the night,
nor the arrow that flies by day;
Nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
Nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.
THE CURRENT SITUATION
Our Government has requested that we stop all non-essential contact with others so the NHS can better care for the most vulnerable people in our society, and relieve pressure on our NHS, during the 'second wave' of this Coronavirus outbreak. As the nation goes into a second lockdown, our in-person church meetings have been put on hold until we are permitted to meet together again. In the meantime, we'll be meeting together online and you're welcome to join us. Find out how and follow our 3 simple steps to get started.
Some might argue that church gatherings are essential and under state persecution around the world, our brothers and sisters bravely disobey their oppressive regimes in order to obey God (Hebrews 10:25) and meet together.
However, it isn't in light of persecution that we find ourselves in this situation. Instead, these things are being asked of us to protect others and it is the effect of centuries of Christianity that leads our nation to protect the elderly and the very poorly at great national cost.
Jesus taught us to love our neighbour as ourselves. We thank God the Father that Jesus’ influence is still felt today, despite our nation’s widespread rejection of his selfless love which was seen at the cross where he offered himself to God as a sacrifice on our behalf.
