Now that we are ‘allowed’ to meet in slightly larger groups and with the prospect of shops and pubs opening again, we can begin to think about re-opening the doors of our church, sometime in the not too distant future. There are probably more questions than answers about that, but let’s just say for the time being, we cannot wait!
Like most churches up and down the country, we are maintaining our friendships via phone calls, WhatsApp and Zoom, and meeting practical needs as they arrive. The depth of care and concern within the community here in Dormansland has been fantastic throughout the Covid-19 crisis. We thank everyone who has played a part in that amazing effort.
As ever, ‘truth’ has been a significant theme in recent news. As Christians, we hold dearly to the Cornerstone of our faith, Jesus Christ, who told his disciples (as they were about to enter a kind of lock down):
“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14: 6 (NIVUK)
Due to a mixture of lock down restrictions, we remain unable to offer our own online services, so we offer a few excellent alternatives (see below) that many of us at DBC have been following these past few weeks. There are many others, too!
