High-risk people

While we are keen to welcome everyone back to church in person, we appreciate that for some people who are at higher risk from Covid-19, returning to church may be a more complex decision.

If this is you, please take the time you need to work through this. We encourage you to let someone know if this is your situation so we can pray for you and look for ways to keep you connected. You can be confident that we will continue to run our Morning, Chinese, Afternoon, Iranian and Night Church meetings online (and some post-service Zoom meetings) as well as in person church to support your continued involvement and encouragement, even as we look forward to seeing you in person again.
