*****************************

This Saturday 30 July there will be a live Service in St. Peter’s in Watford at 11am as usual. This will be a ‘blended’ Service as we continue to Zoom our Service each Saturday. The link to join will be the same as it has been and will be to the end of 2021: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/88922633763?pwd=UXpUV1Q5aEJ1Kzg2bjU5N2w3U3lldz09
The sermon this week will be from Watford member, Kevin Harris.

We are pleased that the government restrictions have moved from law to personal responsibility. Our limitation on numbers who can meet in the hall has been lifted, but we are still requesting that when you arrive you use the sanitizer and then give your name and contact number in case you need to be contacted if someone in the group on that day comes down with the coronavirus.  St. Peters, in whose hall we meet, request that for the time being we consider wearing a mask when seated, although we have been told that we may sing! Although social distancing is not required, do consider other members bearing in mind the very high rate of infections and keep your distance where possible. We request that you leave every other row of pews empty at the moment. We do understand those who are still anxious and may wish to continue wearing a mask and observing social distancing for a while–we have the freedom to do that as well. Remember 1 Corinthians 6:12 which reminds us that all things that are lawful may not be expedient.

We are pleased to say that refreshments St. Peters have confirmed that we may begin using the Church Hall and serving refreshments once again!

We look forward to seeing as many as are able to attend each week to worship together and give thanks.

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

Sadly, we will not be able to have our Youth Camp for Teenagers this year. S.E.P. Youth Camp Director Jackie Mill writes: ‘I am so sorry to have to write to you once again to tell you the news that we are having to cancel SEP 2021, after the government is delayed the relaxation of restrictions. While we understand the reasons behind the government’s decision, we still grieve the loss of another SEP. We do not have the time needed to go forward with our plans for SEP 2021, nor the assurance that the restrictions will be lifted completely in the weeks ahead. It is the not knowing that is the problem.
We are looking to see what extra events we could put on in the months ahead. I have already been in touch with Morfa Bay Adventure to secure dates for 2022 and hope to share those with you soon.
Keep an eye 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
