Coronavirus Update - A Message from our Rector

Rev John Armstrong

Dear Friends, 

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 this unprecedented time.  To help with this, I am thinking here of using the internet in the following ways:

(i)   Beginning on Thursday morning 19th March, 2020, I will live stream on Youtube a short morning Bible reading and prayer time.  I am thinking of 9.30 am as a start time for this.  I will do this every morning at the same time, except on my day off and on Sundays.

(ii)  On Sundays at 10.00 am, 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 Sundays from 9.00 am - 12.00 noon for folk to come and pray.  I will also open St George's Jump from 5.00 pm - 6.00 pm 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.  I will also try to get it on our 'A Church Near You' page.

As long as the schools are open, we will continue with JAM club.  Helen and I will look at the possibility of a club for older children.  I think it is important that we provide something for children.  I doubt they will find (i) and (ii) above much use to them.

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

May God continue to bless you and watch over you.

Rev John Armstrong.
