This months Home Church Stream:

No Sunday Gatherings in our building (for the moment)

Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, there are no gatherings in our buildings at the moment.

I think it’s worth pointing out that while our services have temporarily ceased, CHURCH has not stopped. Both the church “gathered” and the church “scattered” are still the Church – God’s redeemed people, on mission in the world. So, while our Sundays may look a little different, we will still be worshiping God together, albeit from our own homes.

On three Sundays of the month, a "Home Church Booklet" will be delivered to members before each Sunday, which will include some devotional thoughts and discussion questions, as we continue our Sunday program. They are designed so that you can do them as an individual, a couple, or a household. There will also be links to songs to listen to, prayer points, and any announcements.

On one Sunday each month, we will have the "Home Church Stream" - found above or at tinyurl.com/cowratube

If you’re concerned about the Corona Virus, a little lesson from church history may give perspective. This was Martin Luther’s approach as he faced "the Black plague":

"I shall ask God mercifully to protect us. Then I shall fumigate, help purify the air, administer medicine and take it. I shall avoid places and persons where my presence is not needed in order not to become contaminated and thus perchance inflict and pollute others and so cause their death as a result of my negligence. If God should wish to take me, he will surely find me and I have done what he has expected of me and so I am not responsible for either my own death or the death of others. If my neighbour needs me however I shall not avoid place or person but will go freely as stated above. See this is such a God-fearing faith because it is neither brash nor foolhardy and does not tempt God." (The Annotated Luther, Volume 4: Pastoral Writings, page 404.)

In summary of Luther:

  • Love, trust & serve God
  • Love your neighbour as yourself
  • Respect social distancing
  • Wash your hands
