***UPDATED*** At the core of Christianity we see in Acts 2:42-47 a picture of the early church:
The fellowship of the believers
42 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. 43 Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. 44 All the believers were together and had everything in common. 45 They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. 46 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favour of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
As Church Leaders at LWBC and Trustees we believe there is a place where God will honour those who honour Him. This doesn’t mean we are approaching this current situation in a foolish way – our approach is neither to panic nor be complacent, but to have that reverent fear of God above any viruses.
However, due to recent Government suggestions about meeting places to be closed, the leadership team and the trustees believe it is right and proper that we are not seen to be out of step with these suggestions, so there will be no services or gatherings until further notice.
We believe our God is greater and stronger and He is for us – but equally we want others to learn about His love too, and therefore we need to be seen to be people of respect as well.
With regards to the Sunday Morning teaching, we will pick up The Bible Society video series that we were doing at the All Age Service, and finish these over the next 6 Sundays. Please see this page http://lwbc.org.uk/the-bible-society-video-course/ for more details, and a FREE link to download the booklets that were originally £4.99
There will also be some live streams on Facebook – Darren and The BC Family are currently taking song requests and you can listen in during the morning and evening when they streaming live via Facebook (we understand you don’t need an account to see it – but let us know if this is incorrect) – Darren’s page can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100010321422505 and previous videos can be found on this page via the image links below:
Finally, let us continue to encourage each other, and look for opportunities to bless others around – let us shine as people of peace full of God’s love, grace and mercy.
If anything changes we will update you – the best way to stay in touch is to sign up to our newsletter which will collate as much info as possible and share it in one go.
