What a world we find ourselves in! In such a short time so much as changed. Removed from life as we know it, physically distancing ourselves and trying to bring these challenging times to an end as quickly as possible. Our church buildings have closed. We now find ourselves seeking new ways of communicating and reaching out to our communities. We are exploring how to be relational in rich and intentional ways and support the people we have come to know and love within our congregations. A big gap will be the removal of our time of worshipping together on Sunday. Many congregations have started experimenting and learning new ways of presenting worship and reaching out, some taking small tentative steps and some leaping into the technological world.
Families now find themselves confined to home, never has the nurturing of ‘faith at home’ been so important.
Grow Ministries is here to support you. We will continue to work hard to bring you tools to equip your people and share His light with those around us. Stay in touch and share with us your needs so that we can come out of this time into a new and exciting place, focused on our Lord and each other.
