CHURCH DURING COVID-19
We currently find ourselves not able to meet together as we normally would but we can keep connected. During this season, these are some of the ways that as a church we will keep connected and equip you to lead yourselves, your families and your friends in worship and discipleship during this season.
LIVE STREAMING SUNDAYS
At 10.30am on Sunday mornings, join us on our ROLCC Facebook page (click here) for our weekly live stream. We will also break bread together so make sure you have some bread and juice to hand if you can.
After the live stream, grab a drink and join us for our online coffee hangout via zoom from 11:00-11:30am. The login details for this are shared in the live stream.
Also check out our YouTube channel (click here) for a weekly worship playlist and Facebook pages for weekly content.
Prayer is one of the key ways that we can respond to this crisis and we meet online using zoom on Monday evenings 9:00-9:30pm and Thursday lunchtimes 1:00-1:30pm to join together in prayer. Everyone is welcome to join and the login details are shared in our Facebook group and newsletter. If you can, aim to log on 5 mins before the start time.
CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE
If you are parents, we will send out some resources for you to use with your children for family worship and discipleship.
Each connect group will work on ways to keep connected and to study and pray together. Each group will be different and your group leaders will let you know how it will work for your group. If you are not in a connect group and would like to keep connected with one, then please email email@example.com and we will link you in with one of the groups.
LOVING OUR NEIGHBOUR
We have an excellent opportunity to pray for and serve our local community. REACH are working hard to ensure those who need it receive food parcels so let’s continue to support them as a church during this season.
It’s also a great chance to be mindful of those who are self-isolated or vulnerable in our neighbourhood and networks, finding ways to reach out and serve them practically in this time. We have also partnered with our local council to provide practical support such as shopping for people referred to them via the Home But Not Alone scheme. If you think you would like to volunteer for this, please get in touch with us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
The main way that we will communicate during this season will be via email and our Facebook pages. If you haven’t joined both the ROLCC Facebook page (click here) and ROLCC group (click here) yet please do so as some of our posts will be public but some will only be posted on the group.
We are mindful that some people do not use either of these and are not connected to a connect group. We will do our best to keep in touch with them but do also feel free to call someone that you know doesn’t use social media and emails, I’m sure they will be glad to hear from you.
"God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble."
