COVID-19

Hardship Assistance

Watching over one another with love

We all know that COVID-19 has had a profound impact on the economic wellbeing of our community. Whole industries have had their income wiped out from under them. As a church, we want to respond to the needs amongst us. One of our membership promises is to watch over each other with love. So we have decided to do just that. 

To meet the very real financial needs around us, the membership has decided to set up a fund drawn from our existing assets. This fund will be available for families or individuals who have had their income affected by COVID-19. While this may not solve all the problems people face, we hope that this can be a practical support and a tangible expression of God's love.

May God give us all grace as we navigate this difficult time.
