What are we doing in this time of the Coronavirus Pandemic?
Like every person, family, business, school and organisation, we are having to respond and adapt to what is going on around us. This page is a place to share what that’s looking like for us and to give you tools that can help you to do the same.
This page shares a few different things. It shares what we're doing on Sundays now, some info and articles about our plans, and some things you can be doing right now.
We have a few things going on with our Sundays, so what can you do and what are the options that work best for you?

We have been planning and preparing for what our next stages look like as a church family. Here are some key articles we’ve put together to explain that. You can see all our articles, blogs and our weekly info pages here.
How do I come out of lockdown?
We know that there are a lot of different ways that we are all asking this question. It is not an easy time or an easy thing to do for lots of us. So in our current series on Sundays, we’re asking that question and giving 6 tips for stepping out of lockdown. These are all practical advice that come from the Bible, and particularly from a story of God’s people making a transition of their own. You can join us on Sunday, or you can find all the talks in the series here.

We also believe that praying is a great thing to do as we step out of lockdown. As a church we are a praying people, and would encourage everyone to give praying a go. One of the articles shared earlier on is all about that, and shares what that could look like, from private prayer in our building, to prayer gatherings to praying on your street. Take a look!
We have made lots of things that you might find helpful in recent months. Our YouTube channel is packed full of things, including lots of weekly content for children, all of our talks and a number of other one-off things too. We have also put something together to help everyone get into the Bible for themselves, no matter what age you are.
