Church closure

17th March 2020

The Minister and Secretarial Team have today (17.3.20) agreed that our church should follow advice from the URC and suspend all worship and activities until the end of April. This means no public worship in Church until the beginning of May (unless advice changes), cancelling all our Holy Week worship, cancelling meetings (including Lent Groups and choir practice), postponing our AGM and cancelling all other activities arranged in the building. Hall bookings have been cancelled. The Stroke Club will not meet and the Nottingham Child Contact Centre will not open.

It is with great sadness that this decision has been made, but the health of our members and halls users must be our first priority and is our greatest concern.

The church intends to provide ways in which we may continue to share worship. Following an experiment to stream our service last Sunday, we expect to be able to stream and/or podcast a simple act of worship in the coming weeks. Information about this will be shared on this website.

We wish to continue offering pastoral support to all members of the congregation. Any member of the congregation may contact their Elder if they, or someone they know, needs help, whether in regard to a pastoral need or a practical need – such as help with shopping. Any member of the Secretarial Team may be contacted if your Pastoral Elder is not available.

We continue to pray for those who are having health difficulties or who have responsibility for taking decisions in relation to this difficult situation.
