Coronavirus & Our Church Family

How will COVID-19 affect church life over the next weeks?

  • Sunday Mornings

    We have cancelled the usual church gatherings of our church family on a Sunday morning. Both the Breaking of Bread and the All Age Service will not be happening in person until at least Easter.

  • Youth & Children

    Our Parents & Toddlers, Ignite and Youth Group will not be meeting physically from this point forwards. We are exploring ways young people and children can still connect with each other and the church community.

  • Ladies Study & Life Groups

    Our Life Groups and the Ladies Bible Study will not be meeting physically, but we recognise these are an integral part of pastoral care and fellowship as a church family. We are exploring ways that these groups can continue at a distance.

  • MREC Whatsapp Group

    Official announcements for church life will continue through the usual emails from John Knight.

    We are emphasising the importance of being together, even from a distance, through a new church whatsapp group of those 'local' to the church. This is for encouragement, prayer and some possible new programme formats.

    You can also connect through the MREC Worldwide group with friends in other nations.

  • Virtual Church

    We are planning an AAS from a distance on Sunday Mornings at 11:15am as we gather together for worship, prayer and God's word. We are making arrangements for Breaking of Bread as a church family too. All of this is in development.

  • Ladies Study & Life Groups

    We are testing formats to continue the Radical material with Lifegroups and to allow for prayer and fellowship from a distance. This is all still in development and we will be announcing the plan for a first joint online Life Group on Wednesdays in due course.

  • Prayer & Leadership

    Elders and Deacons have already been conference calling and we are planning that E&D meetings / Leadership prayer times will continue in that format over the next months.

    Friday's Prayer Gatherings are changing to an online format as we continue to pray together for each other and our communities.

What should I do to stay connected with my church family?

How can we love each other and our community together?
