The more we spend time reading God’s Word and considering the love He has for us as individuals we find ourselves filled with a passion to do exactly what is written on our newsletter each month:- LOVE FATHER GOD – LOVE LIFE – LOVE OTHERS – LIVE WORSHIP.
The more we spend time with our Father God the more He draws us to love others around us with the love like He has given us. He prayed 20 “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, 21 that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me… then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. “John 17:20,21&23
As we commit to spending time with our Father in reading His Word , in prayer and worship we are led to offer ourselves as “as living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God” Romans 12:1. He can then use us to passionately life our lives with the knowledge that we have a purpose :- For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10 .
Our devotion for our Father God becomes an overflow of passion to all around us giving glory to Him and reaching out in love
-‘that the world may believe’
LIFEWELL CHURCH REOPENING
As lockdown is starting to lift, we are looking forward to being able to physically meet again!And we have started to plan for a phased start back, following the recommended guidelines.
Our first step will be to start back with our Family Service
3:30pm Sunday 30th August 2020.
To do this within the present guidelines, will mean –
People with COVID-19 symptoms should follow isolation guidelines
Limited seating due to 2M social distancing, sitting within your family group – So we may require you to let us know in advance if you are planning on attending.A Zoom link to the service will be available for those not able or ready to attend.
Hand sanitiser being used on entry.
You will need to bring your own Bible, notepad, pen, drink & snacks, as shared items and refreshments are not permitted at present.However, we are looking into the possibility of refreshments.
There will be no singing until it is permitted.
Where possible, it would be great if you could continue to give online, the offering bag will not be offered around but there will be an offering basket at the back for those unable to give online.
We are still thinking through how the service will look and how we may be able to do the children’s zone.
That while we look forward to seeing each other in person, times of fellowship before and after the service may have to be limited and we would appreciate your help in respecting social distancing during these times.
Please let us know if you are willing to commit to volunteer to be part of the ‘Welcome (hand sanitiser dispenser) team’, the ‘cleaning team’, ‘children’s team’.
The advice is to discourage sharing lifts and if you need to use public transport / taxi, please follow their safety regulations.
More details with regards to this phased return will follow nearer the time, as lockdown measures are lifted or reinforced.
THESE PLANS WILL CHANGE TO FOLLOW
ANY DEVELOPMENT IN THE GUIDELINES.
Please continue to pray for the situation as a whole and for us as a church as we look to start back.
We look forward to gathering again to enjoy and celebrate the goodness and the faithfulness of our God.
Barnabas stands alongside our Christian brothers and sisters where they suffer discrimination and persecution by providing aid through our partners on the ground encouraging prayer, telling their untold story and speaking out on their behalf.
37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
What can you do?
Pray for your persecuted brothers and sisters. Please search the Barnabus fund website to find more information for your prayers.
As a church we give to this charity and others that reach out in love to our Christian brothers and sisters. Please consider giving and showing love and compassion to Christians and others in the many countries supported.
