We just wanted to send you an email with some updates in light of the Coronavirus situation.
Now is the time for us to stand strong together as a Church and be the light in the darkness that we are called to be. Let us continue to pray for the nation, our government, the NHS and all those who are serving us at this time.
The way we operate as a church now has to change and we are working very hard behind the scenes to try to serve you well and to extension, help serve our communities.
With this in mind we’d love to update you on a variety of things – all of which can be connected to through our new look website.
We will continue to meet as the family of God on Sundays. For the time being this will be online from our homes, starting this Sunday (22nd of March) at 10:30am. This will be a full service of worship and word from the LIFE Church team.
After each service the local campus pastors will be hosting online hangouts, with prayer, discussion and a place to answer some questions – more information and details about this will be shared on our live online service.
If you are unable to watch the services live, they will be available throughout the following week on Facebook and YouTube.
Kids and youth
Our kids and youth teams have been working hard to put plans in place to help serve the young people in our church!
From Sunday the 29th of March we will also have an online kids church – this will include worship, teaching and other great items. More information will be given next week about the times you can access this service.
Our youth ministries in each location are also working to utilise social media and other platforms – you can access these by going to the specific campus pages on the website.
In this ever-changing environment, communication is key and we want to ensure you’re updated. Each local campus (Bradford, Leeds, Belfast and Warsaw) will be using social media as well as emails like this one. Our main church website has also been updated and now has specific local pages directing you to what’s available through your church campus.
Prayer and support
We want to continue to support you in what could potentially be an unsettling time. You can email in any prayer needs you have as well as support requests through our website. Your local campus team will be in touch with you once they receive it.
Today I Choose…
As you may already be aware Charl is doing a short daily message called ‘Today I Choose…’ which is a great encouragement at this time. Please do check that out and share as widely as you would like to. It can be accessed through the church website.
Although we cannot attend a main gathering together, we are still the family of God and we share the privilege and responsibility of giving into God’s house. For those of you who are not already giving by standing order we have updated our Giving page to make giving as straightforward as possible.
Thank you church for your faith and love for one another. These are extraordinary times but you are an extraordinary church and we have an extraordinary God!
We are praying for all of you and your families during this time, specifically praying Psalm 91 over everyone.
Much love, Steve and Charl
