With all of the UK still in Lockdown, although technically Churches are allowed to meet, the Watford Church Council have decided to have only on-line Zoom Services for the time being. We will are hoping to begin in-person Services again the first Saturday in March but will confirm this closer to the date. The plan is to Zoom our Service each Saturday even after we begin meeting in person again, and the link to join will be the same as it is now and to the end of 2021: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/88922633763?pwd=UXpUV1Q5aEJ1Kzg2bjU5N2w3U3lldz09

When we do begin to meet in person again, remember that you MUST contact David Silcox david_silcox@wcg.org.uk to indicate that you plan to come, you can’t just turn up because numbers are limited. When you arrive you will need to 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. You may bring a Bible for your own use (the pew Bibles have been removed) but please do not bring a cushion. You must wear a face covering at all times in the building and use the hand sanitiser at the door going in and going out. There will be hymns but you must sing them in your mind and heart, not aloud. Please remember we still need to observe social distancing and note the one-way system within the church. There will be no refreshments. I hope that this is not off-putting because it will be great to see one another, not just meet ‘virtually’ for zoom Services and the live-streaming messages.

There are other GCI UK congregations also providing Zoom services and you will be able to find these zoom links on the UK Church website www.gracecom.church under the Local Virtual Services link if you would like to join up with them. And nationally there is still a youtube Sermon provided each Sunday at 11am and a Bible Study at 7:30pm Wednesdays which are open to all.

These live-stream messages will also be uploaded as videos (and audio files) in the archive for people who are not able to join at the time the broadcast and here is the link to past broadcasts:  https://gracecom.church/media/live_stream_archive/index.php
These options will make it possible for you to join others to worship together virtually until and even after our regular meetings have been resumed.
