This is a place we can gather online while we all keep out of the way of the COVID-19 virus, isolating ourselves physically to slow it’s spread, but meeting spiritually.

We can’t meet in our building, but we are not our building.

  1. Thank you, what a blessing to our household that service was. We joined in with the prayers and sang out loud letting anyone within earshot hear our out of tune voices, with the valuable messages included, particularly, ‘The blessed assurance that Jesus is ours’.

    Yes, this coronavirus is restricting people. It is an appropriate reflection of what Good Friday would have meant to Jesus’ family, friends, and followers, throughout their darkest day…… (except the darkest day may last several weeks or months with this pandemic). It will lead us into the brightest day (Easter Sunday) where a whole new life (for us and many others) this world over will begin. Many are going to change from their self-interest and step out into a new life. The Blessed assurance that Jesus is mine is the key.

    For now, however, Isaiah 26:20 could not be more pertinent. A quote directed at the land of Judah but interesting to our times I am certain………..’Go, my people, enter your rooms and shut the doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until his wrath has passed by’.

    And a direct quote from today’s Upper Room……….
    ‘As Christians, we know that even in the midst of our distress we can remain strong in the assurance that death is not the end. As we struggle through times of grief, the promise given to us through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ strengthens us, gives us hope, and enable us to persevere.’

    I enjoyed the service today.
    I sent the link on to a few blokes I consider as my good mates and am hoping they tune in….. Ron said something along the lines of “tune your focus to God so he can adjust the balance for you”. I pray many do take up that opportunity and tune their focus to God and let him adjust the signal to one that suits each person best.

    See you all next week, and everybody invite somebody along……… this is a great moment for us to all………. ‘Reach out, and change lives’.

    Blessing to all,
    David and Deborah Buck.
