Dear Church Family

It seems a long time since we had to close our church buildings and alter how we functioned as God’s people in Old Felixstowe. In this time many things have happened and we have had to adapt and learn new skills. Who would have thought that many of us would attend worship with a cup of coffee in our hand, slippers on and then sung in front of our computers – or for those of us who have returned to the building we would not be singing and have to wear masks?

We are neither in a sprint or a marathon – perhaps more like a triathlon.

Over the last four months we have changed and adapted to a new reality in the light of the Coronavirus.

Tuesday, July 07, 2020

On 12th July we will return to our church building for public worship. We plan to do this in a staged and sustainable way, seeking to reduce risk as much as possible whilst complying with government regulations. At present the national church guidelines recommend that if you are vulnerable for any reason you should avoid public gatherings of more than six people.

How can we sing the songs of the Lord while in a foreign land? Psalm 137: 4

Psalm 137 was a written whilst the Israelites were in exile in Babylon. For many years the location where worship had happened had been the temple and now in exile they had to work out what it would look like to worship the Lord in a strange land.

We are currently working through the extensive government guidelines to ensure that when we return to worship in the church buildings we are able to do so in a way that reduces risk. This will require some adjustments in how we operate and time is needed to implement the changes.

Monday, June 15, 2020

Having received on Wednesday official notification that we may open our buildings for private prayer, much work has been going on to ensure we can do this in a safe and sustainable way.

We are not open this week but are looking to be in a place where we can be open for a limited period in the next week or so.
