Corona Virus COVID-19 Update

Going Forward

Going forward, all our services will be suspended according to government regulations, this decision will be reviewed as things change in the future.

As a church we will ensure that our entire premises is well cleaned before any reopening in the future paying particular attention to surfaces and door handles.

As a christian now is a good time to be thinking proactively about who in the church might need extra help should they decide or be required to self-isolate. Is there the need to shop for more vulnerable members of our community for example?

If you have someone who is not able to join our services, please consider giving our church information to them for them to join us from home or email them this link https://cityofgodchristiancentre.org/watch-live/  to our live services.

Remember that many people are anxious and a reassuring phone call and an offer to pray might be very much appreciated.

Prayers

Remember that the  Church is wider than Britain We are learning from our sisters and brothers around the world who are dealing with a difficult and uncertain situation and we would ask that you hold them in prayer, particularly those in affected areas.

God of all hope we call on you today.
We pray for those who are living in fear:
Fear of illness, fear for loved ones, fear of other’s reactions to them.
May your Spirit give us a sense of calmness and peace.

We pray for your church in this time of uncertainty.
For those people who are worried about attending worship.
For those needing to make decisions in order to care for other
For those who will feel more isolated by not being able to attend.
Grant us your wisdom.

Holy God, we remember that you have promised that
Nothing will separate us from your love – demonstrated to us in Jesus Christ.
Help us turn our eyes, hearts and minds to you.

Amen

 

 

A message of thanks and support

Dear Friends,

Here at City of God we are working hard to support you all in Mission and Ministry to fulfil your calling. We wanted to say how grateful we are for the way you have responded to the challenges of these current times. This last Sunday we saw what the bible have to say about this and we believe you’ve been encouraged. This will be a marathon and not a sprint, we are committed to serving you as you serve the world, take care of yourselves and please feel free to make contact if we can offer more, or you spot gaps that you might have ideas on filling.  Thank you.

Apostle Bright Onoka (Lead Pastor) and  Team
