Following the Government’s statements, we have taken the sad and temporary step of suspending all King’s Church events, and any events that were due to be held at our building.
This is an unprecedented time for us at King's but we have been planning for how to love God and our neighbours during these restrictions. We confidently believed that God’s Word is never restricted, even when we are (2 Timothy 2:9).
We will livestream a worship service on Sunday mornings, starting at 10.30am, via our YouTube channel. You can find out more about how to connect with us and what will be happening at our services on our livestream explanation page.
We encourage small groups to meet virtually. It’s not the same as being there in person but there is technology that we can use to help us see and talk with one another.
If you’re part of King's and having to self-isolate for whatever reason, we want to be able to pray for you and care for you. Let your small group leader know and contact the elders.
Our King’s Kids team are in contact with parents and carers to give resources and ideas to help your children continue to grow in their knowledge of God. Contact Rachel Fleming for more information.
Similarly, there won’t be youth meetings but Gemma Morton will be arranging virtual hangouts and giving ongoing support and encouragement to our young people.
Students will also have opportunities to meet and talk and pray online together: Nathanael Smith will be leading this for us.
We will continue to reach out with God's love to those in need. We will still be collecting for the Basics Bank, we are getting in contact with isolated elderly people to offer them conversation and friendship, and we are working with Safe Families to give emotional and practical support to vulnerable families.
Let’s pray for the government officials and scientists who are trying to prevent things getting worse, that they would have wisdom and success. Let’s pray for medical professionals, that they would have grace and strength to deal with the workload. Let’s pray for those who are sick, that God would comfort them and heal them. Let’s pray for those who are fearful, that they would put their trust in God alone.
