Like many of you, we’ve being staying up to date with all the information and guidelines that are being given regarding the spread of ‘COVID-19’. We are aware of the severity of this situation and the need for sensible and safe precautions.
Accordingly, all Sunday services in the building are now on hold until we are advised by the government and we have like many churches now moved to "streaming." We are however open to everyone to call and for private prayer. Please see the Calendar page just to make sure that the building is staffed and open. There is a room in the building which is available for this use, a member of staff, or one of the church leaders will gladly pray with you, or simply leave you in peace.
We are also very aware that God remains in control!
Whilst we are being responsible in how we approach the spread of this virus, we want to encourage you to not give into the spread of fear and panic.
Isaiah 41:10 tells us:
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand”
We must not allow the size of this issue to diminish the size of our faith.
We do not want any person at New Hope Church to feel isolated or anxious at this time, so we want to encourage you to contact your home group leader or Alan. We want to make sure everyone remains connected, we want to pray for you and want to ensure that you are receiving the help you may need. Using the government guidelines we have identified our church members who are in the “high risk” bracket and would encourage those individuals/families to raise any concerns. We are putting in place practical help should you require assistance.
Church family, even though we are implementing the above changes, there is absolutely no reason to worry. We have never been a church that chooses fear over faith and we are not about to start now!
“If you make the LORD your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter, no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your home”
