January Lockdown

Online Services in Lockdown Church

After careful consideration of the Government’s January Lockdown, we have decided to take our Sunday services back online-only again.

There are a number of factors:

  • Churches in England may remain open, although they are required to close in Scotland.
  • Cases per 100,000 in Wirral have gone from 52 at the end of November to 557 at the end of December (and that doesn’t include the impact of Christmas).
  • Churches that do open are among the most Covid-secure public places you could visit. Most churches (including us) have been meticulous about adherence to Government guidelines.
  • For various reasons, not all directly Covid-related, a significant portion of our regular church members have been unable to attend in person lately. This is unlikely to change soon. One impact of this is that it affects our ability to open the building and host services confidently (not least in terms of technology).

The last point above is the tipping-point for us. Other churches (locally and further afield) may be able to continue to open their buildings for services which would be great. We wish them well.

Above all, the good news that Jesus saves brings hope. For the many people who struggle greatly and despair in these days, his people remain secure in God’s love, wisdom and goodness.

So, if you would like to know more about the hope Jesus brings, you are welcome to get in touch – we’d love to help.
