In Lockdown 2, places of worship are no longer permitted to be open (apart for specific exemptions). Therefore Christ Church East Greenwich is unable to hold services and activities in our church building until early December at the earliest.
However, church is the people not the building so we continue to meet online to worship God and support each other – see below for more information…
If you would like any help with how to use Facebook, YouTube or Zoom, please contact our Churchwarden, Michael.
And if you are not receiving the weekly emails and would like to, please let Margaret know and she can add you to the list.
Sunday Worship Online
Services in Church – Cancelled
Morning Prayer on Tuesday mornings and lunchtime Holy Communion on Wednesdays are both unable to take place during Lockdown 2.
Sunday at Six is unable to take place in church but continues online.
Call to Prayer for the Nation
Everyone on our mailing list should have received a card and cross with the invitation to respond to the Archbishops of Canterbury and York and senior church leaders’ invitation to a month of Prayer for the Nation during #Lockdown2.
Every day we will pause and pray at 6pm for those impacted by the pandemic. You can set an alarm, light a candle or use a light on your mobile phone as a prompt to pray.
Please follow on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram for more prayer ideas with the hashtag #PrayerForTheNation.
