Coronavirus update – 20th March

FOLLOWING THE PRIME MINISTER’S STATEMENT TODAY ALL SERVICES,MEETINGS AND EVENTSAT ST ANDREW’S CHURCH and at HOLYMOORSIDECHURCHARE CANCELLEDFOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTUREBECAUSE OF THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC.

Elders have taken this decision particularly to protect the older members of our congregation. No one should feel obliged to go to church and put their own health or that of others at risk. We know you will miss the time of worship together so we urge people to follow the URC Daily Devotions and the Sunday service they will be providing each week. You will be in company with 3000 others who follow the Daily Devotions day by day. Pastoral Carers will keep in touch by phone with the people in their groups. Please don’t hesitate to contact them if you feel in need of support, or simply a chat.

Even though we cannot meet, we have on-going financial commitments, not least our Ministry and Mission Fund contribution which help to pay the URC ministers. Please continue your giving, either by setting up a Standing Order to the church or by filling your envelope with the contribution you would normally make and give it to the church when possible. Details for Standing Order scan be obtained from Patrick Lidgett or Liz Sharples at St Andrew’s.
