We have been following all the latest news and updates from the government, university and other bodies and subsequently have made a few decisions about how we do church.
Our plan for the foreseeable future is to do the following as a church:
We are gathering online on our own KCD News & Stories Facebook group and also via our YouTube channel. We’d love you to join with us live at 10.30 each Sunday morning as we gather together as a community. We will have a time of fellowship afterwards on Zoom.
Our Evening Worship is on Zoom – if you want to join us do contact us.
Our small groups throughout the church, both for residents and students, are continuing as normal over various online platforms. If you are not part of one and would like to be please contact the church office.
Each weekday we are having a time of prayer at noon as a community, we will have a time of worship and pray for our church, city, nation and world. To join us please come to the KCD News & Stories Facebook group.
6 days a week (Monday to Saturday) we will be producing a Daily Devotional for you to listen to and read. They will be published at 7am on those days at kcd.org.uk/daily. We are currently in the Gospel of Matthew as we journey up to Jesus’ death and resurrection.
Kids & Youth Work
At the end of each week we will be sending out in our Facebook groups and via email, activities for kids. These can also be found via kcd.org.uk/children. We will also be continuing our Youth Discipleship group over Zoom on Fridays and our tots and toddlers group, Pipsqueaks, will have a short time together on Wednesday mornings in their Facebook group.
Outreach in the community
We are working closely with other charities, agencies and the council to help care for those who are most in need in our city at this time. We have members of our staff & intern team working hard to deliver food to the vulnerable and befriend over the phone those who are lonely. For more information on all the outreach we’re doing visit kcd.org.uk/coronavirus-help.
Care for one another
We want to look after, protect, care and pray for those in our congregation who most need it in this time. We would ask that if you’re apart of Kings you do the following:
- Please make sure your contact details are up to date in ChurchSuite as we will be emailing updates each week.
- If you are self-isolating or have particular pastoral or practical needs, please keep in contact through your cell group leader or through the church office.
We will continue to update this page and our social media accounts on Facebook and Twitter with the latest advice. Those in the congregation will receive regular updates via email and via the KCD News & Stories Facebook group.
Thank you for your understanding. Let’s continue to pay attention to government advice, use common sense and above all pray for our nation and our world.
