May I encourage you to gather around your computer, tablet, phone, etc on Sunday mornings at 11.00am as usual and we will do virtual Church together (in order to do this people must "like" the West Church Ballymena facebook page on their own facebook account).
Either Linda or myself will lead a short act of worship which we can all join with from the comfort of our own homes. We are also aware that not everyone is on Social Media so we want to make DVD/CD's as widely available as possible so please contact the Church Office 028 2564 8327 to give your details or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remember that past sermons are already uploaded onto our website for you to listen to, as well as any new ones that are going to be produced in the coming weeks. There is no shortage of sermons to go back and catch up on - Happy Listening!Pastoral Care.
Since all hospital and other regular pastoral visits have been suspended for the time being the best way to keep in touch is by phone, WhatsApp and other electronic means. The first point of contact in this regard should be the elder to whose district you have been assigned and they will be in touch with you in the next few days. This will be a hugely important way of keeping in touch. In the sad event of there being a funeral by necessity it will have to be strictly private with no Church service.
Linda Keys will co-ordinate a group of volunteers who are willing to assist anyone who is self-isolating and requires shopping, medication and other messages to be dropped at your doorstep. Please contact Linda directly with regard to this on 07799100444.
The love we have for one another in Christ is expressed through prayer which is our best weapon to fight against this coronavirus and our individual anxieties and concerns going forward. Please use the prayer email at email@example.com.
There are lots of really good websites and youtube videos which you can use to encourage your spirit and nourish your walk with the Lord. Desi Maxwell's material is available to everyone free of charge at http://xploretheyoke.com/membership-acco.../membership-levels/ Don't forget the joy of reading a good book!!!
This is a time for us as followers of the risen Lord to speak faith into the fear and reassurance into the uncertainty.And don't forget - "Together we are West."
L.K TODAY week 1 Wed 25th March 2020
DATES! I wonder which are the most memorable dates in your life?
Your wedding day
The birth of a child
The day you got your acceptance to the University of your choice
Or sadly the day you stood at the graveside of a loved one/friend.
All these are dates that will have influenced your lives in some way. The eminent historian Richard Overy, the editor of the Times
Complete History of The World, chooses the dates that he believes have most influenced humanity.
All notices for the bulletin and website must be with the office by Wednesday at 6.00 pm.
