We would advise that the decision
has been taken to suspend all services and activities at the church till
further notice. This includes Thursday evenings and both Sunday services.
The church office will only
be open on Mondays and Thursdays with the staff working at home for the remainder
of the time.
We will keep you up to date
as often as possible and will let you know about the livestreaming of services.
For those who do not have the facilities for receiving the livestreaming, we
are making the studies available on CD. These will be mailed every Monday. As
you know we also have one of the most extensive resource libraries available
with studies on every book and chapter of the Bible on CD, DVD and even
cassette. These are available at any time to give you a constant source of studies
in the Word to help with your spiritual growth.
We will also be advising
shortly of a few other innovations that will help with those over 70 and those
who may have to self-isolate and we are also making materials available for
children, so as while they are away from church, there is still an opportunity
for them to learn about the Bible on a creative way.
We are making all the
resources available to anyone who requires them, not just to those who come to
Calvary and we are looking at using this difficult period in an evangelistic
way to tell others about the good news…especially in a time when there is so
much bad news. History has shown that the church has grown during and following
times of crisis (e.g. both World Wars) and there will be people asking
spiritual questions e.g. “is there a God”, “Why would He let this happen” etc.
Although critical times, we
have an unprecedented opportunity to shine as God’s people.
To quote a couple of lines
from a hymn we often sing:
darkness seems to hide His face
I rest on His unchanging grace
In every high and stormy gale
My anchor holds within the veil
have many more plans and opportunities being quickly developed but that’s for
you have any questions or even suggestions, please let me know.
His and sincerely yours
