The updates regarding what can and can’t be done due to Coronavirus are changing on a daily basis, and the Church has to stay vigilant and keep people safe while also being a beacon of hope and light in a dark place – it’s a fine balancing act.
The decision has been made that, as from Monday, none of our Church buildings can be open to outside lettings. All groups need to be informed that they can no longer meet on Church premises.
The exception to this is Foodbank and associated groups, which are providing a valuable service to our communities. However I would suggest that people are encouraged to spend as little time as possible visiting Foodbanks and that social distancing is observed.
CLT will be aware of the impact this will have on Church finances, but I would ask that you don’t be concerned about that at this time. We have to be more concerned about the health and wellbeing of all those who use our buildings.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am always available via email or ring the office between 9am and 1pm any morning next week.
We hope you can connect with worship tomorrow morning somehow, several churches are holding online services. I see that Cliff College are going to be broadcasting their morning prayers live as from Monday morning.
