It is with a heavy heart I have to inform you that all church activities at Eastwick Road Church have been suspended until further notice due to the Covid 19 epidemic.
This includes Sunday Worship Services, Life Groups, Church breakfasts, Messy Palm Sunday, other Easter services and Meeting Point. I am still also available for pastoral and spiritual support. For this Sunday at least, the church will be open from 10.30 to 11.30am for individual prayer and reflection.
On a practical note, we are truly concerned for those who will self isolate over what might be a considerable period. There are various community groups forming to offer help, but we are establishing our own helpline. So if you need support like shopping or picking up prescriptions etc, or some social interaction over the telephone, please do call either me on 07889 878 471, Jane on 07772045113 or Nick Cox on 07801 318 900
I am aware this is a difficult decision, but we are living in unprecedented times and it appears that only such actions can help tackle the spread of the virus. As we live through the challenges involved might I assure you of our love and commitment to support you and the rest of the church family. We are reminded that God is our rock and our salvation. Let us believe and live out these words.
Finally please find below a prayer circulated by the URC General Secretary this afternoon.
Ted and the Elders
In the midst of a storm,
You said, ‘Peace be still.’
Bid our anxious fears subside,
Sustain your church in faith, hope and love,
Bring our nation through this tumult,
Grant wisdom to those with heavy responsibilities,
And healing and hope to those who are infected.
We are delighted to welcome anyone and everyone to Eastwick Road Church. We are a small friendly church of all kinds of people - all ages and stages of life and faith.
