Coronavirus Update - A Message from our Rector

Rev John Armstrong

Dear Friends,

I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord.” - Psalm 122v1

As you know, the Church of England have told us to stop holding public services. In the light of this, I’ve been having a think about what we can do to maintain our spiritual life together at the unprecedented time. To help with this, I am thinking here of using the internet in the following ways:

i. On Thursday mornings, I will live stream on Youtube a short morning Bible reading and prayer time. I am thinking of 9:30am as a start time for this. I will do this every morning at the same time, except on my day off and Sundays.

ii. On Sundays at 10am, I will livestream on Youtube a short service with prayers, music (hopefully) and a full length sermon.

iii. I will open St Mary’s on Sunday from 9am-12pm for folk to come and pray; I will also open Jump from 5-6pm for the same purpose

I will keep this going until the current restrictions are lifted. I will use my Ezra File Youtube channel for this. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgJaVyfuuXWJ2SpM4P0xEUw I will also try to get it on our A Church Near You page.

I am determined that we support one another spiritually during this time. I trust that God is at work through the emergency we now face. I pray that he will build his Church - in Wombwell, and in the world!

From September, there's a new channel on YouTube. This is called, Wombwell Parish. All services and Bible studies will from that point on be broadcast on that channel (Facebook continues as normal).

This last few months have been a very difficult time for us all. However, from where we are now, we can look to the future. We trust God for that and we want to build his kingdom here in our town. Thank you for your support and your prayers. I look forwards to see you soon.

Every blessing,

John Armstrong
