CORONA VIRUS

IMPORTANT: – SUSPENSION OF SERVICES AND MEETINGS:

 

It is with deep regret that we have to suspend all services and meetings at Greenfield until further notice.

We hope to continue with our worship and witness in different ways. We are looking to stream a Sunday morning service from the chapel led by myself. As there is to be a Sunday morning televised service led by the Archbishop of Canterbury we will ensure that we will not ‘clash’ with that service. Sunday evening a half hour ‘Conference Call’ service. Our Tuesday evening prayer meeting will also be ‘Conference Call’ .

The weekly Newsletter will be on Facebook – and emailed to members and friends who have an e mail address. Those who do not have e mail will receive the weekly Newsletter through the post. We will try to keep everyone up to date with church family news. The Newsletter will also have a message and prayer points.

While we have contact information for all our church members and regular friends who worship with us we are aware of a number of friends for whom we do not have this information.. It is important to us that we keep in contact with everyone. To those friends – please get in contact with your information.

My e mail is detjonescaeglas [@] aol.com   (NB: no bracket or spaces on the email address)
