LiFT (Living in Faith Together) 12th March
Good Evening all,
How are you?
It has been another busy week with plans and hopes falling into place. I am thrilled to let you know that we will be opening our churches for worship again, on Easter Sunday. How wonderful that we will be able to celebrate our most important festival in person!
We must be mindful of the restrictions and requirements to adhere to the law and guidance from Welsh Government and the Church in Wales, so not all our buildings will be opening straight away.
I will write to you again once I have spoken with church wardens and firmed up exactly which churches will be holding services. There are two things to note about this – first there is no obligation or pressure for you to come back to the buildings if you are still uncomfortable about your safety or wellbeing. We will continue to broadcast a service online every Sunday, although for practical reasons this service will shift to 6pm on Easter Sunday and following Sundays.
Second, because we will not, for the short term, be able to have a service in every church every week, I would like you to regard every service that is available as a Ministry Area Service. Every single one of you is welcome to worship at any church in the group and I strongly encourage you to come and worship wherever you prefer, regardless of your usual church, confident that you will receive a very warm welcome when you come through the door.
Details will follow about times, places, how to book a place, and new arrangements for coffee once I have tidied up the loose ends!
This Sunday, 14th March, We will worship online with coffee afterwards on Zoom.
