Church Activities and the Coronavirus

Posted on March 6, 2020 Under Blog Post

This advice was updated on Monday 23th March. Further updates will appear here.

We have a good God and we need not fear. Many worse things have happened in human history and, whilst this may affect some of us very closely, it is important that we keep a wise perspective.

In an interest quirk of timing, Charlie preached on worry only a fortnight ago. You can listen to the sermon online here.

Given the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19 and the continually changing advice from government and the national Church of England, we thought it good to publish clear advice.  As a church, we take our responsibilities very seriously, especially to the most vulnerable.  If you have questions, please contact Revd Charlie Styles: 07725 264991 charlie.styles@lutterworthchurch.org

The church building is now closed, but the church family remains active in mutual support through technology and practical help for the vulnerable.

Supporting One Another

We are very keen to continue to be church family during this time.  As part of that, we are keen to enable church members to love and support one another. 

  • If you would appreciate someone making contact or need help with groceries and other essentials, please get in touch with the Church Office: 07849 729451
  • If you would be able to help delivering to the housebound, please let us know – crisis@lutterworthchurch.org

We are also using technology to maintain our church family relationships, whether that be a simple as regular phone calls, online service streaming and bible studies by video conference.  Please talk to your Life Group leader to get involved.

Regular Services

We are suspending public acts of worship and instead will be streaming services online.

We will be streaming from Lutterworth at 10.30 on Sundays.

Children’s Activities

We are responding to government advice, so our face to face children’s work will not be continuing. But we are looking to use technology to continue to work with children and young people.

Pastoral Visiting

We will be doing very little visiting at this time, but will be calling people on the phone and dropping by with groceries. We want to continue to support people at this time. If you need to be visited, please contact Charlie, our vicar.

For more information

We will update this advice as things change. The full Church of England advice can be found online.
