Thank you for all your encouraging words and feedback following on from our very first livestream last Sunday.
This coming Sunday we will be looking at John 11 together. We also have a special interview with someone from the heart of the response to CoVid.
10am Sunday. Don’t miss it!
Looking after each other
This difficult season has really demonstrated the value of our Growth Groups. Please do not give up meeting together online or over the phone.
If you’re not in a Growth Group but would like to be part of something new starting online then do please let me know.
It could be that you need some practical help in other ways.
We have formed a team ready to assist you if you’re having trouble getting things done. Perhaps you’re not able to get out and do your shopping? Maybe you need help setting up technology (e.g. an iphone or a computer) so you can join in with a group online or watch the Sunday livestream.
Whatever it is, please do let me know and we’ll get our team onto it.
If you have family or friends living close enough, why not ask them to help you get online for our livestream? It’s a great way to get more people watching! Of course, make sure everything you do is safe and in accordance with the physical distancing guidelines that we all now are very familiar with.
Wider Church News
Bruce has written to you to let you know that the AGM has had to be cancelled. We will update you when we work out a process of electing new Synod reps.
Resources from the Diocese
The Diocese of Sydney has produced a web page responding to the current Corona Virus concerns. There’s lots of interesting material there.
Perhaps of most interest are:
- a message from the Archbishop
- “What You Should Know” from Dr Charlotte Hespe
- Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for Parishioners
Please do contact me or your congregation pastor if we can be of any help to you, or simply to share what is happening in your life. We all need to make the effort at the moment to stay in touch with each other.
Wash your hands! Keep physical distance but also increase your social contact in other ways!
Most of all, keep loving and trusting Jesus.
