Hi church family,
We have been closely monitoring the development of measures associated with the coronavirus and considering the information being provided.
In the light of government guidelines, we have decided to cancel all church gatherings, activities, events and trips which physically bring people together with immediate effect. It means things like Sunday services, community group meetings, Coffee and Chat, Alpha and Little Ones will not take place for the foreseeable future.
This is obviously a massive change in how we do church. We have not been here before! Yet, God is still God and He is with us. He will lead us through. I believe we can learn lots about our God and our relationships with Him and each other can grow as we look to Him.
Our vision remains: to seek His Presence, to build Our Community and to be Their Hope. The expression of this vision will obviously look different for a while. However, God has made us in His image - created and called us to be creative. This time, although very strange and unsettling, provides us with an opportunity to be creative.
We are committed to: helping everyone be fed spiritually and encounter God; ensuring people are cared for and feel connected; and equipping KCC to bring the Gospel to those around us through words and actions. We would love your help in doing this. We all have a part to play.
While not physically meeting, we are keen to keep our sense of togetherness by creating shared experiences. We have some ideas as to how to make this happen. Look out for more details in the coming days.
Clearly, technology is going to be very helpful during this time - WhatsApp, video conference calls, KCC Facebook group, emails - we will use whatever we can to stay connected. Some community groups had virtual meetings last night! However, we are aware that not everybody in our church family can access things in this way. We are looking at ways to support them.
Please be aware that the office staff will mainly working from home until further notice. Therefore, the office phone will not be answered as a matter of cause. Emails will be regularly checked and responded to.
What can you do?
Lets look to God, be wise, keep loving and pray!
