A letter from our minister, Matthew, during the Covid-19 virus outbreak

While our building is closed due to coronavirus the life and work of the church goes on.


There are some details on this site but please do get in touch if you’d like to know more, to ask for prayer, to join in our online Sunday Service or for any other reason.

Along with so many people we are not only supporting one another but doing what we can to help our neighbours including joining with Good Neighbours where possible.

The literal meaning of church is ‘gathering’ and while we cannot physically gather at the moment we are still a gathered community.  As individuals we live and work and play our full part in society, serving as so many others do.  We are also gathered together as a local church here in Kings Langley and our role is first and foremost to be representatives of God here.

This is a time of great uncertainty for all of us.  We may be working from home and trying to home-school at the same time, self-isolating and feeling vulnerable or living alone and struggling.  We do not know how long it will last, nor what the medium or long term impact will be for us and our loved ones.

As Christians we believe that, whatever else changes, God is faithful.  It is the experience of knowing God in our lives that gives us peace, strength and hope in times of difficulty.  We do not pretend that life is always easy and so we are constantly working to support humanitarian projects and organisations both locally and around the world.  That is still the case during this pandemic.

So we try to care for the whole person, body, mind and Spirit.  As we all look after our physical health and are increasingly concerned for our mental wellbeing, do also remember, and be open to, God at this time.

Matthew
