News From Rev. Gaynor Jones-Higgs.
I write on Wednesday 25th March 2020, the second day of lock down due to Corona Virus in the UK. None of us knows what the situation will be by the time you read this.
However, in this most difficult of times I am heartened by the way that our communities have joined together to love and support each other and the ways that our churches have continued to thrive. I have also been touched by the understanding and patience of our congregations as we as church leaders seek to respond to the rapidly changing situation, especially those who have had to have their weddings postponed and those who have not been able to have the funerals for their loved ones in the ways that they would have liked. perhaps now more than ever with our church buildings closed for the foreseeable future, we are realising that churches are not buildings that we turn up to on Sunday mornings, rather the church is the gathered people of God reaching out in love to our local community.
Church is very much still happening, in fact I’m still really busy. Overnight I have become a “Virtual Vicar”, services are continuing via Skype and Bible Study via WhatsApp. We are keeping in touch and supporting each other via email, Facebook, phone and letter. Please continue to stay in touch with what the churches are doing by following us on Facebook.
We are also keeping up a daily rhythm of prayer and worship in our own homes. If you have any specific prayer requests, please contact us and we will ensure they are acted on.
I would urge you all to continue in these very uncertain times to continue to love God and your neighbour and to seek to reassure you of the Christian certainty, best expressed by St Paul in Romans 8.31 – 39 that neither life nor death, (not even Covid 19 or coronavirus) separate us from the love of God in Jesus Christ our Lord.
Stay safe, keep praying, be kind.
Yours Rev’d Gaynor
