Following guidelines from the Government, and also clear and unambiguous direction given by other Christian bodies to their respective congregations – including the FIEC, the Baptist Union, the Methodist Church and the Church of England, it has been decided that ALL Bethesda’s public services, meetings, ministries, and any related social gatherings are cancelled . The cancellations will be reassessed on a regular basis as the situation unfolds and Government advice is updated. We will keep you advised as we are able of any changes to this policy.
We are very keen to continue to provide ongoing ministry and social and pastoral care & support in these days. Please be assured that we are actively working to provide weekly recordings for people to watch or listen to in their homes, and we will also be providing the Family News to keep everyone informed and connected. The Pastoral Care and Visitation Team are maintaining contact through letters & phone calls, and there may be those who will appreciate additional help and support in the coming weeks so please make any needs known to a member of the Diaconate or to the Pastoral Care and Visitation Team.
These are very unusual times but we have a God who is Sovereign and more than sufficient for our needs. Our Motto Text is of great comfort and blessing:
“Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
Isaiah 41 v 10.
