We just want to update you all about our church services light of the current situation with coronavirus.
Firstly, we don’t want to panic. We believe in the Creator God who is Sovereign and brings order out of chaos. He is with us in the middle of all storms saying, ‘Take Courage! It is I’ (Matthew 14). We believe that He is with us, He will guide us and He will give us all the resources that we need.
We will meet this Sunday morning as usual for a service of Holy Communion at 9.30am. We are continually monitoring advice and guidance from Truro Diocese, The Church of England and Public Health England. If there are any changes regarding our Sunday services or mid-week meetings, we will post information on our social media channels and on our website. The current guidelines from Truro Diocese along with a message from Bishop Philip can be seen here.
In the meantime, if you are planning to come on Sunday morning, but you have symptoms such as a persistent cough or a fever (or have had close contact with someone with such symptoms in the last 7 days), we ask that you stay at home; but please do let us know so we can pray for you and keep in touch.
If you come on Sunday, you may notice that things might look a little different in terms of how we share the peace, serve refreshments and celebrate the Eucharist, but we will explain things as we go along. And like everywhere else, we’ll be placing a high priority on all of us keeping our hands clean.
If you are unable to meet with us, many churches do live stream their services. For details of a couple of churches that do this in Cornwall and details on how to access this please see here.
If you are at home with children there is a simple liturgy and resource ideas from the Church of England here. (Use the ‘Worship at Home’ tab.
