In response to Thursday evening's announcement by President Emmanuel Macron, and in order to protect the most vulnerable members of our church family by slowing the rapid spread of the Covid-19 virus, our Locum Ministers, Church Wardens and Church Council have agreed that there will be no services at church on Sunday 15th March (as is the case for most churches in the Paris area), however the church will be open from 9am to 12pm on Sunday morning for anyone who wishes to come to pray or talk together*.

Furthermore, it has been decided to suspend all of the children's groups that meet at the church until further notice (Little Fishes, Sunday Groups, Youth Group, Trinity English School, Scouts and Guides, Easter Mini-Club etc.), and also to postpone our upcoming Annual General Meeting (Sunday 29th March) until a later date.

In these extreme times, let us all make an extra effort to keep in touch with each other by phone, email, text, whatsapp etc., to talk and pray, to find out how people are, to help each other practically where possible, and encourage each other. Meeting physically in small low-risk, symptom-free groups is also ok*.

For this Sunday, here are some resources you can use at home:
Some songs that were planned for this week's service are below:
* when meeting together physically, please respect the "safe distance" of 1m and keep to the recommended hygiene protocols (hand-washing, cough/sneeze into single use tissue or elbow etc.)
Stay in Touch!
Please click here from your phone to follow the link directly to the church's WhatsApp group which we invite our whole church family to join for extra support at this unusual time. We also encourage you to set up other WhatsApp, Facebook, email or other contact groups within your area to share, support and encourage one another.
Please send us an email if you know of someone in need and if you are not in a position to help - we can and we will! We have a team of people who can pick up shopping or provide a meal. Please check in with elderly and vulnerable neighbours in particular. You can also call, text or whatsapp us on 07 67 07 77 20.
Gospel Shaped Living
Sadly, we are also obliged to suspend the physical meeting of our Wednesday evening Lent Course at church, but hope to be able to continue the course via Zoom on Wednesday evenings. Please send us an email if you are interested in participating in an interactive online Lent Course session, and we will send you more details on how to join in.
