In light of the current guidelines issued by the government and by The Methodist Church regarding the impact of Covid-19 we have taken the decision not to gather in REfUSE on a Sunday evening until further notice. We believe that this decision is the best way in which we can fulfil the command to 'Love God and love our neighbour', by being part of the global move to limit the spread of the virus and protect the most vulnerable in our communities. Situations like the one we are facing bring home the importance of community and the need 'love one another' in practical ways. If there is anyone who needs support or help please get in touch.
If you would like to know more about being a Christian and the hope that we have in Jesus, or be part of an online gathering for worship, please get in touch using one of the methods on our contact page.
We met as a group for the first time this evening and reflected on the greatness of Jesus. We wprshipped God through song and prayer. A media clip reminded us of the call of Christ on our lives and of the cost of following Him. We reflected on the greatness of Christ as outlined in Pauls poem to the Colossian church (Colossians 1:15-20), Christ, through whom and for whom everything was created:-
19 For God in all his fullness was pleased to live in Christ, 20 and through him God reconciled everything to himself. He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of Christ’s blood on the cross.
The atmosphere was relaxed as we dwelt in the presence of the Spirit. After worship folk stayed around to chat. It felt as if God blessed what we were able to offer as we took a first step in faith.
