Although the Watford Congregation is now meeting every Saturday at 11am as before the lockdown, I am still planning to continue the virtual worship here for a few more weeks and hope that it will bless those not able to meet together with us.

This is the beginning of the Virtual Celebration Week that has replaced our regular yearly Conference/Festival in Paignton, which cannot go ahead because of pandemic restrictions. There are live-streaming sermons each day from 3-11 October as well as Prayer Meetings, Bible Studies, Seminars and activities such as a Quiz and SEP Zoom meeting. Please check out the schedule on our UK Church Website www.gracecom.church or click on this link: https://gracecom.church/events/index.php You will then need to click on the relevant link to join or view the appropriate activity.

Welcome to the first day of the Celebration Week! The Theme this year is from Psalm 127:1, “Unless the LORD builds the house…the builders labour in vain.” Let’s hope the builders of worship this week have had the hand of God guiding them.  With the coronavirus and government restrictions it can seem to be (flag of 2020):

Have you heard this tongue-in-cheek way to test yourself for coronavirus?

A new day brings a new beginning, we look forward to the coming of Jesus to bring hope, peace, joy and love.
