Covid 19 Update

Ealing Christian Centre Covid 19 Update

Dear family & friends of Ealing Christian Centre, 

As a result of the latest Government and Public Health advice regarding the COVID-19 crisis on Monday 16 March 2020, and the response from Health Secretary Matt Hancock in the House of Commons regarding large gatherings and a call for social distancing: “with the deepest regret and the heaviest of hearts we do include faith groups within the advice”, Elim Headquarters have taken the decision to suspend all Church services from and including this Sunday, 22 March and have advised that we take our services online. We will do this for the next three weeks, and continue to review, following Government and Elim HQ guidance .

 

For us, this means an opportunity to still gather as one, via technology, which can be accessed via your laptops, tablets and smart phones. We will be streaming our service live this Sunday via our Youtube channel at 9am, but can be accessed online from then onwards. Our children’s service will follow at 11 am on Facebook live. Youth service will stream at 11am on Zoom.  Our Tuesday prayer meeting will also be online, accessible via our Youtube channel at 7.30pm also Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday evenings our prayer services will be online at 6pm.

 

As of 8th of April our church office will be closed until further notice however we will still be answering calls from 10am-3pm.  However the rest of our building will not be open for use until further notice, but we will still be worshipping and delivering God’s message at these services. Whilst we cannot currently meet together, this is a great opportunity to strengthen our relationship with God and each other as well as serving our community. 

For you to continue to give over the next few weeks there are four avenues:

1. Standing order 2. Online banking 3. Via the ECC website.  The ECC bank account name: EFGA RE EALING 2 RES sort code 60-05-16 and account number is 18844979.

We will be in constant communication with you via our website, e-news and social media and will keep you updated on services, events and giving as we receive guidance and direction from our headquarters. If you are in a Discipleship Group, your group leader will have received guidance and will update you regarding your meetings.  

 

As pastors, elders and staff we will continue to be available to serve you and will make every effort to respond to your calls. We ask that you spread this message to all who attend ECC and join us in ensuring that members and friends are cared for and supported at this difficult time.
