Church in the time of COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
More than ever, we want to respond with faith, not fear. We want to exercise wisdom and take appropriate steps to ensure we adhere to the government guidelines as they change, to keep our church and communities as safe as possible. We'd encourage you to join us in praying boldly for God to move at this time, for people's wellbeing and health, and for the peace of God to overcome fear!
Following government recommendations, we will no longer be having church services in person. Church is going to be online for the foreseeable future, and we’re thankful that current government guidelines permit us to live stream to an empty building on Sundays from out Glasgow locations. This is an important time for us to be the church and reveal hope in all we do, and we’re excited to join together to worship from wherever we are. Please follow our social media and website for more details on this.
Bible Read Through Groups
We’d advise that BRT groups now meet online, via Zoom, WhatsApp etc. It is of utmost importance that we continue to ‘gather’ in small group communities to share from the Bible, pray, and encourage one another. Leaders, rally your people and keep going! If you’d like advice on how to best do this, please speak to your location’s BRT leader.
If you are self isolating or if you are anxious about the effects of COVID-19, we would love to support you during this time. Please reach out by emailing the below emails, dependant on what location you attend and we will be in touch.

In everything we do, we are endeavouring to exercise wisdom by following government guidelines, while doing all we can to love and care for each other at this time. We are monitoring the situation and will keep in touch as things go on. This is a time to seek God, pray boldly, and continue to worship Him as the loving and gracious God He is.
