We continue to thank God that, despite lockdown restrictions, the church has been allowed to open so that over the past month Sunday morning services have continued there – with the air conditioning kindly provided by the doors and windows being open. Nice to have a breath of Spring warmth ‘unmasked’ to bless us, or at least the promise of it!

We always give due attention to safe social distancing and sanitising gel, and it’s great that some of us are able to meet physically, and others by You Tube and/or zoom. For members and other baptised friends able to join us at the chapel, we will be sharing communion together following the morning service of March 7th.

Evening services for the moment continue via zoom only. Please join us if you can, one way or the other.

Just a reminder regarding Communion, otherwise called The Lord’s Supper – it’s for all church members and baptized believers who love the Lord Jesus in sincerity and truth. A series of Baptismal instruction classes have commenced, and in March these will be on Sundays 7 th & 21 st , 5-6pm on zoom. If you have not yet been baptized by immersion, please contact Calix if you wish to consider baptism and church membership, or if you have questions about what being a Christian is.

Please note the different types of Rehoboth happenings in the interest of maintaining and encouraging the fellowship of God’s people. Also that others may be invited, or just ‘happen’, to pick up – tune in – to our live streamed morning services via the church web site or on You Tube

Also zoomed evening services are available (see below) – Contact Andrew Cooke for Link in codes for zoom.
