Weekly Update 05/07/21

Hello Everyone

 

According to the news following the Prime Ministers announcement freedom day is here! At the risk of sounding like Mel Gibson’s rendition of William Wallace, they cannot take our freedom. Freedom day for us is the day we followed Christ, that day when we were set free from our sins, our past hurts, our selfish desires and instead we have been given a life of the Spirit. A life that will never end, that is abundantly full and completely free. Jesus liberated us. The church of Jesus Christ, His followers, His family, have always been and will always be utterly free. Let us live in the freedom Jesus has given us and no longer be slaves to sin, to fear, or to the fleeting pleasure of this world. You are free and you can share freedom with those around you.

 

Galatians 5:1 It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

Church Services fully open from Sunday 25th

 

Following the announcement from the Prime Minister  we are excited to inform you that Church will be fully open with no restrictions on Sunday Mornings from 25th July. As we are still in the global pandemic, masks and hand sanitizers will still be available, the choice to wear masks will be at your discretion.  We are so looking forward to seeing you all and to singing together freely again.

 

Children’s Church and Youth provision

 

In the coming weeks we will have more information on the restarting of children’s and youth provision for Sunday mornings.

 

Cafe provision

 

We will be taking our time with the re-opening of the cafe and be considering the local infection rates and how we can maintain some space whilst offering drinks after the service.  We will again have more information on this in the coming weeks.

 

Dedication

 

This Sunday we are celebrating the dedication of Katy and Paul Auerswald’s son Joshua. We are so looking forward to celebrating with the family and looking at the CLC baby boom I am sure this is the first of many dedications with 2 more already booked for August.

 

Love & Blessings
