If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord, ’and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Rom 10:9
This week I had my second vaccination up at the Community Stadium. It was a strange situation to find myself in. A football stadium with no crowd, no teams, no PA announcements but still a sense of anticipation. As we gather back in the building at Plume each time we meet I still have a sense that I am gathering with others to meet with God. It may be an unusual situation but there is still a sense of expectation as we meet together. I wonder where you have met with God this week? We know he is not confined to buildings, places or people and so as we go about our business we should be prepared to meet with him wherever we find ourselves. Expect the unexpected as someone once said.
If you are nervous about coming back to the building can I please encourage you to come along to one of our services in the next couple of weeks. These services have less people in attendance and it can give you a sense of what it feels like to be back in the building with other people around you. Numbers are strictly limited at the moment so there are no big crowds.
If you’d like to join us for a service please do drop an email to
firstname.lastname@example.org to book your place.
Please continue to pray for Plume Avenue Church as we seek God for the way forward and please also remember to pray for your neighbours and our nation as we come out of lockdown.
Elders meet on Monday night and we would really value your prayers as we consider the future and look ahead to what God is calling us to.
If you haven’t yet been to one of our prayer gatherings on Zoom can I encourage you to do so. We meet on a Wednesday morning and a Saturday morning. Now more than ever we need to be seeking God and lifting up those who do not know him in faith that he will reveal himself to them.
