We continue to observe the COVID-19 protocols. We have had to stop serving refreshments after service due to the increased infection rate of Covid-19. We hope to resume once the infection rate goes down again.
As you are aware, Rev Cleopas Sibanda is on Sabbatical until mid-February so there will be no letter from him until he is back from his Sabbatical. If any one would like to write a message of encouragement to the congregation for our newsletter during this period, please send it to me and I will include it in the newsletter.
I was away over the Christmas period so I missed most of the Christmas services at Longbridge but I understand that all the services went very well. It has been a difficult period for everybody with the rapid spread of the COVID-19 virus in the past few weeks but, thankfully, we have been able to gather together in our services to celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ unlike last year. I really missed the services at Longbridge but I nevertheless had a lovely time celebrating this Christmas with family and friends. I am off to Nigeria for a couple of weeks so I would like to take this opportunity to wish everybody a happy new year.
EVERY MONDAY: 7.00 pm – Food Cycles have re-started their community meals in the Foyer. Numbers are limited to 20 at present.
If you would like a prayer shared in the service, please fill in a prayer request card. These are available from the box on the trolley at the back of the church and, when completed, should be handed to a Steward before the service begins.
There is the choice of having a set of envelopes, making a monthly standing order, a regular payment by bank transfer, or cash.
Please place your offering (cash or envelope) in the plate provided at the exit as you leave after the service.
