The CRT held its scheduled meeting this week. Unfortunately given the latest government announcements, the situation we face as a church is the ongoing closure of the church building and the requirement of all MBC groups that meet offsite or in homes also to obey the new rules. These rules only permit us to leave the house for certain reasons, none of which are for general religious activities. The bulk of our church life will necessarily remain online for this period. For now, our use of the church building remains ‘paused’ and we have to follow the new lockdown for 6 weeks, or until at least Wednesday 19/8/20. CRT will continue to meet and monitor things fortnightly.
As we enter this new challenge, when hopes feel dashed, let us all pay prayerful attention to those about us who are affected by this situation. Pastors and elders are ready to respond, pray, visit, phone or drop off a care pack – please let us know. This is a time to attend to those most in need. Remember also to pray for our leaders who need wisdom.
If you have any questions please reach out to member of the CRT: Andrew, Matt, Rob or Owen.
