COVID 19 – Moving from Crisis to Strategy

This coming Sunday will be our 7th lockdown service held online each Sunday at 11.00am and streamed on Facebook Live and You Tube. This central gathering point is the place where we come together as community and share life, faith and hope all built around the central message of the risen Jesus.

As we journey through the crisis together, we grieve for what we have lost whilst at the same time establishing new patterns of ‘normal’. As leaders we have to navigate what all this means and build from where we are something to reflect the beauty of the Lord. Our thinking must move from crisis management to strategic thinking. We work forward from where we are building from a place of love and grace for the future.

Currently all our shops remain closed along with the Café with staff furloughed in line with government objectives. The Foodbank remains vibrant with increasing numbers of people requesting support an indication of how the realities of lockdown are starting to have a real impact on people.

For now we must stay connected; look to serve and support one another and believe that as we respond to the current situation with faith and wisdom we will all become bigger and better people as a result.

Based on the latest government guidance and out of love for our neighbours, we as a Senior Leadership Team have taken the decision to suspend our regular Sunday meetings at the Hope Centre until further notice.

We will be hosting a weekly online gathering as an alternative and are also working on diverse and creative ways to stay connected as a local Church and to support our community during these unprecedented times.

This page will be updated on a regular basis so please do check back in to see the latest.  Please also visit and follow our Facebook Page for the latest updates.

Let’s continue to hold each other in prayer as we journey forwards with Christ.

With love and blessings,

the Senior Leadership Team
