We are planning that our service on October 4th will be a Harvest Thanksgiving service and we will be collecting food for the local Food Hub. There will be a collection point in the Café on Thursday 1st and Friday 2nd October and also in the service on Sunday 4th October. We will not be making a display of the food but would be happy to pass donations on. Items needed are: Tinned vegetables, soups, meat, fish, fruit; Pasta, rice, biscuits, cereal, tea, coffee, sugar, jam, peanut butter, chocolate bars.
The Leadership are planning to start holding the Sunday morning service at the church from Sunday 4th October. We will be following Covid guidelines including pre-booking and the use of sanitizer and masks. The sermon may be pre recorded rather than live. The service will be live streamed so that those not in attendance can watch at home. We will also produce a DVD for those who need one but this will not be available until after the service. We look forward to being able to worship together in the church building.
On Thursday 10th of September we plan to gradually reopen the cafe. For certainly the first week at least we shall be operating a booking system via myself only. Bookings are only booked in once you’ve had a confirmation message from me. Please note all bookings must be made by 9 p.m. the night before at the latest. We shall be open 9 till 12 Thursday and Friday, serving the breakfast menu only (see menu below). Bookings are available for up to 6 people for 90 minutes (please refer to the government website for current guidelines on meeting people outside your household).
One person will be required per table to leave their details for the NHS track and trace. Children are still welcome to join you at the cafe as part of your booking, however please be aware they must remain at your table and there will be no toy area available.
BUILD YOUR OWN BREAKFAST. For the first week at least we will only be operating an eat-in service. Menu available- Build your own breakfast… Bacon Sausage Egg (fried or scrambled) Mushrooms Tomatoes Hash brown Beans Toast (Meat items 70p each Non meat 50p each) Breakfast rolls- 2 meat items on a roll £1.50 (Additional items charged as above) Toasted tea cake £1.25 Jam 20p Chips £1.25 Variety of hot and cold drinks.
It is with much sadness that we are suspending our Sunday services until further notice, in line with Government guidance and other church bodies (Church of England, Methodist, Baptist, FIEC and others). We will, instead, be sending out material by email and post so that we can all take part in a programme of worship in our own homes each Sunday.
Although we are unable to meet together in person we know that as the body of Christ we can pray for each other, encourage each other and share each other’s burdens. ‘Cast all your cares on to Him, for He cares for you’ 1 Peter 5:7
PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SHARE THIS PARTICULARLY WITH ANYONE YOU KNOW WHO MAY BE PLANNING TO COME TO ANY OF THE EVENTS BELOW
As you will no doubt be aware, the Government has made some very serious announcements regarding Coronavirus tonight. The Leadership team have discussed (by conference call) how we should respond and all agree that we should follow the letter and the spirit of the guidance.
What this means for us that we are cancelling with immediate effect the following:
Mid Week lunch
The Musical Afternoon
We will be reviewing what we do regarding Sunday services over the next couple of days and will let you know once we’ve made any further decisions.
As a Leadership we are looking at means of supporting people in the congregation and in the wider community both pastorally and practically. We realise how important this is and will put plans in place over the next few days. Please bear with us on this as we clarify issues.
At this time of uncertainty it is good to remember that our God is the ‘ same, yesterday, today and forever’. He is a God of compassion and faithfulness. The Evangelical Alliance encourages us to pray, not panic, and to show what’s different with Jesus in our lives. Let’s keep our eyes fixed on Jesus.
Come and celebrate Christmas with Canley Community Church. Our family carol service is designed to include everyone with traditional carols, fun for the children and everyone can dress up and join in (bring your own costumes or borrow from us!) Sunday 15 December at 11am
