Church is going online from Sunday! #coronavirus

AN UPDATE FOR ALL WHO ARE PART OF THE EVERY NATION LONDON, WEST KENSINGTON CONGREGATION. Scroll down for the video update.

(This also applies to our Slough and Stratford congregations, except the specific details.) For more information see www.everynation.london

UPDATE: The Every Nation London West Kensington online services will broadcast at 10.30 and 20.00 on Sundays, via this link here. Until further notice. You’re welcome to join!

These are uncertain and testing times for sure, but thankfully we have a Rock on which we can stand strong when all is shaking around us. We pray for you, that you would know God’s peace, provision and protection in this time, and that we together will truly be “lights that shine in the darkness” to all who do not have the same hope that we have in Jesus.

Our latest Coronavirus Response Update
As you know, the UK government introduced new social-distancing measures this week, and we want to update you on the following important decisions we have made to adhere to this as a church family:

As from today, we will stop all EN London public meetings/gatherings until further notice, and everything that can, will move online. This includes our Sunday services, Connect Groups, one-2-one discipleship and pastoral meetings with leaders and staff.

Obviously, this will mean big changes and some challenges, but we are a people of faith and in this we will also look for every opportunity to connect deeper and reach more people with the Good News than ever before!

PLEASE DO THESE THREE THINGS: (Besides staying close to Jesus in prayer and faith)

  1. Please be intentional to FOLLOW OUR COMMUNICATIONS and engage on our website, Instagram or Facebook pages to stay informed and encouraged. We’ll be posting helpful and encouraging content regularly.
  2. Please, even this week, CONNECT WITH AN ONLINE CONNECT GROUP REGULARLY. If you are not yet part of an existing group, join one via the listing here, or join a new group through the “foyer” after the Sunday online services (see below)
  3. JOIN ONLINE CHURCH every Sunday from this week. See details below.

SUNDAY SERVICES ONLINE ONLY
From this Sunday 22 March, we will be broadcasting two services online at 10.30 & 20.00. No service in the West Kensington venue.

Note that the services will not be available “on-demand” until a week later, as we want as much as possible to connect together and interact online as a church community and with others who will join us online.

The added Sunday 8pm service will be the same content as the morning, giving those who work day shifts the opportunity to join as well.

We will also have “Foyer” opportunities as part of each service, which we’ll explain during the broadcast.  Each service including the foyer time will be 90 minutes.

By Saturday we will share the links to access the services via email, our website, app, and on all our social media platforms.

OTHER SCHEDULED EVENTS
It is also with regret that we are having to cancel/replan our scheduled events, as follows. The course leaders for each of these will be communicating with all those who have registered to inform you of new dates and other arrangements:

  • Freedom Day on Sat 22nd is postponed: new dates will be announced
  • Follow One: This will continue online
  • New Decisions Seminar. This is postponed: New dates will be announced
  • The EN Europe Build conference in Krakow in May – To be decided
  • The Counter Culture events will be replaced by an online experience
  • Engage Training – this will happen online
  • Home Alpha Courses – to be decided.

ONLINE GIVING to Every Nation London
During this time, we appreciate your continued generous regular giving to the mission. Or if you would like to take this opportunity to start regular or once-off giving online, please do so via this link here. Thank you! As communicated this past Sunday, we will be giving £1,000 towards the local West Ken Foodbank from this month’s tithes and offerings.

We will continue to closely monitor the ongoing developments, and through our relationships and Connect Groups, we are here to serve one another’s needs.

We’re praying for your protection, provision and peace, and that we all will be voices of hope and Good News to all around us who may be in fear and confusion.

Please know that we are here for you. We also have a new way of you sharing your Testimonies/Prayer Requests/Needs with us online here.

Love and peace,

Wolfi & Ali, and the leadership teams at Every Nation London
