Our Worship Services began in person the on 1st May at 11am in St. Peter’s Church–the first live Service since 5 December when the strict lockdown began. We are so pleased and thankful to be meeting together in person once again. We will have a ‘blended’ Service each week which will be zoomed live from the Church on the same link which will remain valid to the end of the year:   https://us02web.zoom.us/j/88922633763?pwd=UXpUV1Q5aEJ1Kzg2bjU5N2w3U3lldz09 
Remember that there are strict measures to comply with–you will need to notify Irene Wilson or David Silcox if you wish to attend; and at church when you enter, after using the hand-sanitizer you will need to give your contact number in case it is needed should there be a case of coronavirus among those who attended at the same time as you. You will need to wear a face covering at all times in the Church building. Although we will conduct a normal worship service with prayers and hymns and a live sermon, you are requested not to sing the hymns aloud. There will be no refreshments until restrictions are lifted, and limited social interaction before and after the service. Please observe the one-way system into and out of the Church. You may bring a Bible for your personal use (the Pew Bibles have been removed) but please do not bring a cushion to sit on.

Although these measures may seem strict, at least we can meet in person and it really makes such a different to be there and worship together rather than virtually.

The UK Church Headquarters is still providing a live-streaming Sermon each Sunday at 11am, as well as the live-streamed Bible Studies on Wednesday nights at 7:30pm. See the website for the link at www.gracecom.church  

See the Call for leadership trainees for SEP our Summer Youth Activity Camp: SEP-call for leadership trainees (wcg.org.uk) SEP is planned this summer for 26 July to 6 August 2021 and applications for both campers and staff are on the SEP Website: SEP UK

Christian Unity is needed even more as the global community faces a crisis such as we have not seen before with the coronavirus still causing widespread suffering whether physically, psychologically or economically. Please join us in praying for our countries leaders, for our Church leaders, for the NHS and those looking after people still catching the coronavirus. May God bless you and keep you safe.

We have begun meeting again in-person, and everyone is welcome to join us Worshipping God in our Church Services 11am on Saturdays, but during pandemic restrictions you need to book a place because of restrictions on numbers. The Service generally lasts an hour and a half, followed by a cup of tea and a snack. However, due to the coronavirus, government restrictions still prohibit refreshments, but we can still pray and worship. So we can’t sing out loud, we can sing in our minds, hearts and spirits and learn together from God’s Word. What a blessing to be able to meet together.

We normally meet in St. Peter’s Church, Bushey Mill Lane, Watford:

    Hello
    My hand writing is now very unsteady and I would like to know if there is another way of sending my offering to WCG by post rather than struggling to write a cheque maybe credit card.
    Thank you.

      Thank you for your faithfulness in giving and desire to support the work of the Church.

      If you visit the WCG UK Church Website at http://www.gracecom.church : across the top the menu includes a tab ‘Giving’ which you can click on. There you will find another button ‘Donate with Church Suite’ which makes it easy to make an offering if you click on it and fill in the details. There are also Frequently Asked Questions that may give alternatives.

      I hope this is helpful.
      Best Regards,
      Nancy Silcox, webmaster
