Grosvenor Covid-19 Update
Monday 28th June 2021
What an unexpected time the last 15 months or so has been. Now with restrictions reducing we are really excited about what God has in store for us as His people and His church. Here are some of the plans for summer 2021.
Online services will continue each Sunday at 10.00am on Facebook and YouTube. There will be no children’s talks in the online services.
In person services at 10.00am in the church building will take place every Sunday. Please book your places in advance. (They are free!)
The same speaker and sermon will be in the building as well as online.
There will be a families and children activity each Sunday starting on 27th June when Paula will meet families with children in Rock Park at 11.00am for an hour of getting to know each other activities followed by an optional stay on for a bring your own picnic. Times and places for the families & children activities will vary each week – keep your eyes open for details.
The theme for July will be Stepping into a Different World. We will be looking at 4 passages from the book of Acts to see what we can learn from the early Christians about how they dealt with changing and unexpected situations.
Many of us will hope to have a holiday of some kind this month, and many people from other parts of the country will be coming to North Devon for their holidays.
August will be an outreach month with the theme The Best News Ever.
Online services will stop. Instead we will experiment with recording the in-person services and posting them on YouTube at a later time. (Please note they will not be on Facebook.)
Sunday services will take place every Sunday at 10.00am in our building, with refreshments served from 9.30am and after the service. No advance booking necessary.
As is our usual practice in August there will be no organised children’s activities on Sundays to give our wonderful children’s workers a break. Instead there will be activity sheets available for children each week, and the option for parents to take their children out during the service to Noah’s Ark or the Upper Lounge where parents can supervise their children playing and watch the service on the TV monitors.
Each Sunday talk will be evangelistic and suitable to invite friends, family, neighbours, people you meet in the street to come to. We hope to also have some outreach activities on weekdays in August.
Sunday 5th September will be The Gathering. All 3 Grosvenor congregations celebrating together. The venue and time for this to be confirmed.
In Barnstaple the other Sundays in September will include the restart of children’s work, and the elders sharing what we believe God is saying to us for the vision and direction of Grosvenor Barnstaple.
