After prayerful discussion and consultation with health professionals, the elders of St. Paul’s Leaskdale have decided to postpone Sunday services until further notice.
This decision has not been made lightly. It comes not out of fear, but out of a desire to care for the most vulnerable among us and to work with our community to prevent the transmission of COVID-19.
We are people of hope. We invite you to continue to gather together in smaller groups and to be alert to the needs of your neighbours. Let’s continue to pray for one another, for our communities, and for our world.
Here’s the plan moving forward: We’ll share a video message (similar to Andrew’s message last week), at 8:00 am each Sunday morning (viewable anytime), along with a set of worship songs and discussion questions. We encourage you to meet in small groups (10 or fewer) if you are comfortable, or to connect online.
With increasing calls for greater social distancing measures, all mid-week activities at the church are paused. Church staff will be working remotely, checking phone messages daily and available by email, or through the contact form on our website.
If you are in need of extra support (seniors, medically vulnerable, anyone in self-isolation), please let us know using the check-in form on our website. Someone in your area will be in touch shortly.
This is a challenging time for us all. We eagerly anticipate the day when we can be reunited in person. Until then, we look with hope to Jesus.
If you have further questions or concerns, please contact us.
