Dear Friends,
As you know, earlier this week, the Prime Minister announced a four-step roadmap to start easing lockdown restrictions in England. Each step will be assessed before restrictions ease to keep infection rates under control.

Step 1 will begin from 8 March with the return to face-to-face teaching in schools. From 29 March, outdoor gatherings of either six people or two households will be allowed. From 12 April, non-essential retail will re-open. From 17 May, indoor gatherings of either six people or two households will be allowed. From June 21, it is hoped that all legal limits on social contact will be removed. With these steps in mind, we will discuss at our Business Meeting on Saturday March 6th about plans for returning to our church buildings. Vespers will be at 5.30pm led by Errol Victorio, followed by the Business Meeting. 
If you missed the Shepherd's Voice last week, you can still view it as as PDF by clicking on the small image. Many thanks to Pastor Michael Walker for putting it together. 

This Saturday our Family Service will take place as normal at 11.15am on Zoom and Facebook. Pastor Mark Borrett will give a message on the “Faithfulness of God” in the life of the Prophet Ezekiel, who finds himself unexpectedly in exile, hundreds of miles from home. Tonight (Friday) at 8pm, after Adult Sabbath School at 7pm, we will watch the final instalment of the six part historical series on the Book of Daniel. On Monday at 7.30pm, we will continue our series looking at the Apostle Peter's First Letter in the New Testament. 

Blessings to you all in the name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

- Pastor Mark Borrett

The Victorio family are planning to leave late March for their long-term mission trip to the Philippines. They are a completely self-supporting ministry, working side by side with the South Central Luzon Conference and other Conferences.  All expenses will be coming from their own pockets, with an estimate of £350-£400 per month living expenses for a family of five.  One-off donations or a monthly commitment, even from as little as £5 per month, will be greatly appreciated.
