We are delighted to share the news that on Saturday 10th October 2020 Bishop Paul led us in a Launch Service for Christ Church Cabin. You can catch up with the service on Christ Church Norris Green YouTube Channel!
We feel that the Cabin is a fantastic gift to Christ Church and to our community in Norris Green. Every person who has stepped inside has been ‘wowed’ by the space and style of the Cabin, immediately able to see how versatile it is and what an incredible asset it has the potential to be. We’re delighted with it—and want to thank everybody who has supported us.
We’d love to have held a huge launch event, invited everyone around and quickly brought the Cabin into its full use. Obviously, with Covid, there have been many delays and even once launched, there’s a limit to what we can start doing. We’re really very thankful that we reached the launch and it felt so right that the first thing we’d do is to gather and praise God, listen to His word and seek Him in prayer.
Over recent months, like many other churches we’ve gone ‘online’ with much of church life. Between You Tube, Facebook, What’s App and Zoom we’ve been actively engaging across church life. We’ve also been practically supporting local people, most significantly through the launch of our Food Pantry. Over the next few months, and as the Covid restrictions allow, we will continue to gather for worship (planning in time for some services to return to Leamington School), Food Pantry will move to the Cabin and our children and youth groups will start to gather. We’d hoped to start gathering for some activities with our older people, but for now, with our local lockdown, we’ve pressed pause on these plans.
Slowly and carefully, in line with government guidance we’ll be bringing Christ Church Cabin in to use – and we hope to see you there.
Huge thanks to all who have supported and especially to our contractors WrightSpace who have worked so hard to make it happen – thanks Stuart!
