We are closely monitoring the developing situation and formulating plans accordingly. Please see below for the latest update.

*Prayer Meeting Tonight (Wednesday!)*. 

Our 'One Church' prayer meeting will be taking place tonight, 8-9pm. The link has just been sent out via email. If you haven't received the email then please contact your community leader.


If you didn't come to the prayer meeting last week there are two things you'll need to do:

1. Install Zoom on a computer/smartphone/tablet if you haven't already - you can download it here.

2. Join the Zoom meeting by opening the link above between 7.50-8pm.

See you tonight!


We're now into the second week of this new "normal" and slowly getting used to doing church in a different way. A few things to follow up/remind you of:

  • If you missed Church live on Sunday morning (or you just want to watch again), you can re-watch the service here.
  • Check out the summary from the talk on Sunday and links to help you with cultivating daily habits here.
  • If you need assistance yourself, whether it's just a friendly phone call or someone to pray with, please let us know by clicking here and filling out your details.
  • We will be gathering again as a church on Wednesday night for our weekly all-together prayer meeting 8pm. The link will be sent out via email on Wednesday and to Community Leaders to share within their Communities. Please do check your email and keep your email address details updated in ChurchSuite (please also make sure we have permission to email you!)


*Sunday Live Stream Info*. 

The government guidance has changed a little since last week but we will still be gathering online for our Sunday meeting. The meeting will look a little different to last week but do join us at 10.30 am this Sunday. To access the Live Stream of our Sunday service go to: (Feed will go live around 10:25am Sunday)


*Prayer Meeting Tonight (Wednesday!)*. 

Tonight we will be gathering together to pray at 8pm. In some ways it will be like no other prayer meeting we’ve ever had as we will all be gathering online. In other ways it will be just like any other prayer meeting, as we gather as a family to connect with God, who is the same yesterday, today and forever.

The prayer meeting will go for around 45-50 minutes and you can access it via something called Zoom…

There are TWO things you need to do:

1. Install Zoom on a computer/smartphone/tablet, you can download it here.

2. Join the Zoom meeting by opening the link that we have sent you via email. (After 4pm today). Please ensure that your email address is correct in ChurchSuite and that you have ticked the correct box to give us permission to email you!

The prayer meeting will begin at 8pm, so make sure to join the meeting nice and early (between 7.30-8pm you’ll see a waiting room screen and then at 8pm you’ll see everyone’s faces!)

This will be something very new to us so if there are some teething problems we’ll all laugh about it and hopefully improve for next time!

See you tonight!


*Prayer Requests - Echo App*. 

James 5:16 The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.

Over the next couple of days we will uploading daily 'family prayer updates' through our Echo Prayer App. If you have the app don't forget to turn on your notifications so they pop up each day on your phone!

If you have any prayer requests that you would like to be circulated to the church please let your venue leader know.

If you need any help with the Echo Prayer App, ping Chris an email.


*Wednesday Evening Prayer Meeting*. 

Looking forward to meeting together tomorrow evening to pray together. The team are hard at work finalising the details and will send out instructions after lunch tomorrow with how to join in from wherever you are. 

Thanks for your patience and see you all tomorrow!

UPDATE: Monday 23 MARCH [11:40]

*Wednesday Evening Prayer Meeting*. 

So great to see so many of us joining our livestream yesterday morning! Our service has now had over 1.3k views on Youtube alone! 

As James mentioned during the livestream that we are planning to run an online prayer meeting on Wednesday evening and would love for as many of us to join live from our homes as possible

We will send out details on how to join us tomorrow.


*Sunday Live Stream Info*. 

To access the Live Stream of our Sunday service go to: (Feed will go live around 10:20am Sunday)

If you have any questions please email and or contact your community leader.


*Online Communities - How to guide*. 

Thankfully we live in a time where we have the technology available that allows us to connect as communities online! But we know this isn't easy for everyone so the team are working hard behind the scenes creating a helpful step by step guide so that as many of us as possible can connect in community online.

We are putting together a guide for how to run an online community and you can find the first installment here.



*All Sunday meetings are currently cancelled*

In response to the latest government guidance, we have taken the decision to cancel all Sunday meetings and midweek groups. Even though we cannot physically meet, we will continue to be the church and are moving online. Join us from home as we gather online all-together on:

Sundays @ 10.30 for a live-streamed service that will include all the normal elements of a Sunday meeting

Wednesdays @ 20.00 for a live-streamed gathering focusing on prayer and worship (starts 25 March)

The live-streaming link and instructions will appear here in advance of the online services.


We think remaining in Communities is crucial. Even though we will not be able to meet in groups physically, they are still the primary place where we do life-together, pastorally care for and encourage and stay in connection with one another. Community leaders will be in touch with their Communities about the practical how of Community life in this new way of doing church. If you are not yet in a Community, please sign up to one as soon as possible.

Pastoral Care

If you have a pastoral need, please, in the first instance, contact your Community Leader. You can also fill in this form here and we will do our best to help you.


We want to respond to this situation with faith not fear. Please pray for those affected by this virus, those in the healthcare sector and for those in governing authority over us. Pray that we would be a Church who loves, serves and cares for people.

Serving People

One very practical thing you could consider doing is to reach out to your neighbours to see if you can help them in any way practically. Here is a card you can print at home to use & at the end of this week we’ll distribute flyers you can send out.

See you online on Sunday and throughout the week!

We will update this section of our website regularly as we have new information and guidance, please check back again soon and keep your contact details updated via ChurchSuite so that we can stay in touch with you.
