By now you will all be aware of the new restrictions that will come into force on the 27th November. These restrictions will include the closure of church buildings for worship over a two week period. Consequently, this means that the Glastry Methodist Church (GMC) building will not be open on the 29th November or the 6th December. If the restrictions are then relaxed after the two week period, GMC will reopen its building for corporate worship on the 13th December. We will keep you updated.
God will grant us grace to be patient and to persevere. Through this grace, which enables us to make choices that reflect love for our neighbours, respect for the law, and enduring joy in difficult circumstances, the world will see the life of Christ present in us. At a time when some Christians in the Greek city of Philippi were experiencing far greater challenges than our own, we remember the words of the apostle Paul:
“Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, ‘children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.’ Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky…” Philippians 2:14-15.
Let’s let our light shine! 🙂
The Church is not closing! Just the building. As we have been reminded in a fresh way this past year, the Church is God’s people, in any place and at any time. Therefore, we continue to live lives of worship at home and through virtual services on the 29th Nov. and the 6th Dec.
How will this work? On the dates of the 29th November and the 6th December there will be one live Zoom service for both congregations (and anyone who would like to join us) at 11am. The details for joining remain the same,.
If you have any questions, please don’t be afraid to get in touch.
This Sunday’s services 22nd November remain the same: 10am Zoom Service, and 11:30am GMC Service onsite and online.
