Please open this post to listen to our Bishop’s message (7 minutes) reflecting on where we are and how we might move forward into the winter season.
“Living with COVID-19 will be hard for everyone this winter. The Prime Minister has asked us all to observe the Rule of Six. There are lessons and challenges that Christians can draw from this number to help us live well in these times.
SIX MONTHS IS THE NEW HORIZON: Focus on Easter and lean back into the great themes of the church year.
SIX DAYS TO WORK AND A SABBATH TO REST: Reclaim the gift of one day each week for rest and re-creation.
SIX PEOPLE TO JOURNEY WITH: Rediscover church as small groups of people supporting one another.
SIX WAYS TO BE SALT AND LIGHT: Identify the people and community organisations you can support.
SIX PERCENT TO YOUR CHURCH: If your income is stable, increase your giving to sustain the local church.
SIX PEOPLE TO PRAY FOR: Pray for people you know to discover the riches of our faith.
“…neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” [Romans 8.37-39]
