Sunday 27th September | Church Notices

The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. Peter 3 verse 9

Sunday  Service  Today Andy and Rachel Mugford will be taking our YouTube service.

Fullbridge Live

Virtual Coffee after the service  This week it will be in combined home groups.

Please continue to pray for  those people who have ongoing health problems and those who live on their own.  Also remember our government who are having to make difficult decisions about our day to day lives. Pray that a vaccine for Covid 19 will be available soon.

Home Groups  The Wednesday group and Thursday groups will meet for prayer and bible study via Zoom.  Details will be sent to you.

Some of the events include:

Run the Race – Men help other men explore the realities of how we run the race of life, and what perseverance looks like for us as men today.

Mum’s the Word – Katharine and Cathy share how to survive and thrive as a Mum.

Primary Parenting A light-hearted event about the ups and downs of raising under twelves.

Bereaved Parent Support Our special online support event offers encouragement and support to any parent who has suffered the death of their child.

Re-opening Fullbridge Church building
The Elders and Deacons have been working together to find ways to open the building again on Sundays whilst ensuring we meet all the requirements set out in the Government’s guidelines.

For the foreseeable future we will continue to produce the pre-recorded Sunday service as we appreciate that the majority will continue to participate from home.

However, on Sunday 4th October we are inviting people to gather together to watch the pre-recorded service at Fullbridge. The meeting in the building will be hosted by that week’s service leader, Andy Mugford.  In order to maximise capacity, both the front and rear hall will be used.

Places will be limited, so let us know by 2nd October at the latest if you wish to attend by emailing  hello@fullbridgechurch.org.uk  to confirm your space

When meeting for a Sunday service it is a legal requirement that masks are worn throughout the building, including for the duration of the service. If you have had any Covid symptom in the week before the 4th October and do not yet have a negative test result then you cannot attend nor can any of your household. Please be aware that your temperature will be taken upon arrival.

Those who are vulnerable or have been shielding are strongly advised not to attend; however fit and healthy folk of any age are welcome.

Government guidance may change so all the above is subject to change.  This trial attempt at opening the building will help us in planning for the future.  As well as praying for the Lord’s protection and leading at this time.  Pray too for Job Club and the priority activities for which we are now attempting to reopen the building.
