Whilst this virus crisis is with us, we are holding services online. For details, check our Facebook page or drop us a line here and we will get back to you.
This Friday it’s the turn of the family groups to meet together online. Please contact your family group leader for more details.
We’re having a special time of reflection on the theme of Good Friday. The event will include prayers, readings of Scripture and songs. We’d love you to join us.
Because of security issues we cannot post the links here, but if you send us an email or contact a member of the church we can get you to the meeting.
God bless, Malcolm
Good news! All the locations now have access to Zoom for broadcasting participatory live online church services. Many thanks to Marlon for organising this.
You should receive an invitation to join those meetings. If not, contact your location leader.
This Friday, 26th March, a pre-recorded lesson from Tim and Malcolm will be provided. The link will be put on the Facebook page and this website. The lesson will be available on the YouTube channel, the Facebook page and here on this site.
Future Fridays are being organised even as we speak, and we will let you know the details soon as they are finalised.
Keep an eye on the website calendar and check back regularly since things are continually on the move!
God bless, Malcolm
Thames Valley family, after talking things over with Tim and Shevvy this afternoon I have a couple of thoughts about worship for tonight (Friday) and Sunday.
Regarding Sunday, I have an online meeting tomorrow morning with the location leaders to discuss the best options we have for Sunday worship. We will get back to you after that meeting.
As you know we are not meeting together this Friday. Some family groups have plans, but whether you have a plan or not might I suggest that we have a time of prayer between 8 and 9 PM. Whether you are on your own, with a family member, or gathering online, on the phone or via WhatsApp, let’s pray together.
You might like to use Psalm 102 as a framework.
Some topics to pray about:
- Medical workers
- Members of our churches around the world
- Wisdom for the government
- The elderly and vulnerable in our congregation.
- Opened eyes for opportunities to comfort or support people.
- Faith to trust in God.
- Vulnerable people in your community you know of.
Another option would be to listen to the first two podcasts in the new series on the Psalms of Ascent followed by a time of prayer.
You can access the podcasts here: https://www.malcolmcox.org/home-2/psalms-of-ascent-podcast-series/
Or here: https://audioboom.com/channel/mccx
There are many other helpful resources going up online. Whatever we do, let’s be a people of prayer.
Remember the instinct of our early brothers and sisters when they were faced with a crisis…, “they raised their voices together in prayer to God.” (Acts 4:24 NIV11)
God bless, Malcolm
