Plans for Sunday

Dear Church

We sent out a message earlier on in the week saying that all mid-week activities had been suspended at Linton Free Church.  There are a number of people in the church struggling with illness and who are already self-isolating.

In light of the government’s recent advice around Coronavirus, and indeed religious group gatherings, we want to be respectful of government advice and also keep everyone protected as much as possible.

We feel that the responsible thing to do is to suspend Sunday morning services until further notice.

Whilst we are unable to meet in person at the minute it is important that we continue to love one another, share the hope of the gospel with those around us, and encourage each other to serve God faithfully in the days in which we find ourselves.

We are looking into doing some videos (or even live streaming) so that we can all have some form of short service or encouragement in our homes on Sunday. If you have other ideas of how we can engage with each other and the community, please do get in touch.
Obviously, general rotas have stopped currently so if you are well enough and have time please get in touch as we look to supporting our most vulnerable.
I heard a great quote: Church is not closing, Church is changing! This is a real opportunity for us to shine.
I want to say a big thank you to everyone as you continue to serve and encourage each other.
Please continue to check emails, our website and our social media pages as we try to keep people connected.
Much love and do be assured of our prayers.

Chris and the elders.

We will keep this Sunday relatively simple with mainly Chris talking, but will hopefully get a bit more adventurous in the coming weeks if this continues. We will also be organising as many of our weekly groups in this way too. 

You can join the service in two ways from 10:20am on Sunday (aiming to start at 10:30):

  1. Using your smartphone, laptop, computer or tablet: (Meeting ID: 738 909 368)
  2. Using your normal landline using one of these numbers below and entering the meeting ID: 738 909 368. The numbers to dial are: 0131 460 1196 or 0203 481 5237

As this is the first time we're going to do this, we're going to arrange a practice tonight and tomorrow for anyone who wants to give it a go and is not sure how it works. We will start a practice meeting at 8:30pm these next two days (Fri & Sat) for you to make sure you've got your set up working.
