I am writing to bring you up to date with the situation at our Church.
As from today, all services and other meetings at Chorley United Reformed Church will cease until further notice.
This is in line with advice from the government and from the URC and Methodist denominations.
It is important that we maintain church fellowship and cohesion during this difficult time and that we make worship available to anyone (not just members of our churches), who wishes to partake.
To enable worship to continue, I will be putting together an act of worship to be available on YouTube ready each Sunday. Links to the service will be published on this website, on Facebook and emailed out to those whose email address we have.
For those who do not wish to share in a service on YouTube, I will be emailing out a text version of the service for you to use as you wish.
To protect you and me, I will not be conducting face to face pastoral visits unless specifically requested.
I will be conducting phone visits, but if you want to talk, please feel free to call me on 01257 273222. I would welcome your call, even if only for a chat!
I will be working from Chorley URCs Lower Church Room on Thursday mornings and you are invited to come and see me, though I will be asking people to observe the 2m separation rule.
I would also encourage you to call one another.
I am still considering the possibility of setting up a ‘phone tree’ where everyone has two or three people to keep in regular touch with.
It is important that we maintain our sense of fellowship.
I will be setting up two WhatsApp groups : Prayer – Chorley Adlington and Fellowship – Chorley Adlington
If I have your mobile phone number, I will add you to these groups unless you request otherwise.
If you haven’t been invited to these groups by tomorrow, it means I do not have your mobile phone number, so please let me have it.
Please post your prayer requests, news for prayer and indeed any prayers you might like to share.
Please use the Fellowship group to share in other news, thoughts, inspirational texts, information or whatever.
