Dear Church members and friends of HWEC
The elders and deacon have met tonight to consider the advice that has been given by the FIEC on the coronavirus. (HWEC is affiliated to the FIEC)
We have decided to take their advice and cancel all meetings until further notice. We will keep abreast of the FIEC advice and resume meetings as soon as it is possible.
We do wish to keep a sense of fellowship and community and to provide weekly teaching from God’s Word. I will send out a daily meditation starting from next Monday. On a Saturday I will record a sermon and Victor will send this to everyone along with an order of service. The order of service will include prayers, the reading and a YouTube link to hear the hymns.
If anyone has any needs that arise during this time can you please contact me or one of the elders. Please endeavour to keep in contact with one another to provide mutual support as this may well go on for an extended period of time.
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells. God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day. Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts. The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Come and see what the LORD has done, the desolations he has brought on the earth. He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth. He breaks the bow and shatters the spear; he burns the shields with fire. He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.(Ps. 46:1-11 NIV)
May God bless our congregation and keep us safe!
