CHURCH UPDATE


LEADERSHIP

From the 1st September our Senior Leader, Paul Turner, will be taking a Sabbatical for three months. During this time Henry Wilson and Bill Reynolds will lead the church with a small team and so please do pray for them and support them as much as you are able. You can get in touch with Bill or Henry using admin@rolcc.org.uk. 

Having just had 18 months of meeting online, we are looking forward to gathering in person every week from Sunday the 22nd August 2021. Whilst our senior leader is on Sabbatical and we are transitioning out of this pandemic, please note that there might be a few changes to how we would usually do things and some of the things on this website aren't up and running again yet. If you need any more information please email using admin@rolcc.org.uk.


SUNDAYS

We are now meeting every Sunday from 10.30am at the Chalkstone Community Centre and we would love to see you there.

If you are not able to join us in person, join us on our ROLCC Facebook page (click here) for the live stream of our service. 

CONNECT GROUPS

We have several connect groups that meet Monday-Thursday each week. Each connect group have found ways to keep connected during this time to study and pray together. During this time of transition, some groups will remain online whilst others have started to meet in person once again. Your group will keep you up to date with this. If you are not in a connect group and would like to keep connected with one, then please email admin@rolcc.org.uk 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 admin@rolcc.org.uk. 

KEEP UP TO DATE

The main way that we will communicate during this season will be via email and our Facebook pages. Please sign up to the newsletter by emailing admin@rolcc.org.uk. 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."
Psalm 46:1
