We have now begun ‘in-person’ Church Services each Saturday at 11am in the St. Peter’s Church in North Watford. The plan is to have a ‘blended’ Service and 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

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 until the government rules are relaxed–we hope at the end of June. 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 even after our regular meetings have been resumed.

The Traditional Pentecost is on Sunday 16 May. As we would not be able to hire a hall yet for this, we will have a Zoom Worship for those who would like to join us for that. As for our first Spring Festival day in March, we will begin at 10am with the link open 15 minutes before for fellowship. The worship will be around half an hour long and will include prayers, hymns and readings. There will be time for fellowship afterwards before we join the live YouTube Sermon from Market Harborough at 11am. The link for this Worship Zoom is: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/86063805194?pwd=cEtmYWpURFhLWjl2ejJtdkNyQm9HUT09

The Orthodox Pentecost is the next week on Sunday, 23rd May and the Service for this will be provided by the Church Office at Market Harborough during their usual YouTube Broadcast at 11am. There may be a Zoom Prayer Meeting beforehand and a Zoom Fellowship Event afterwards, but we will have to confirm that when the details are available.
