Coronavirus – help in unsettling times

Hi It’s Colin, Pastor at Caversham Baptist Church. I am aware that we are in quite an unsettling season as a country and the world. Some of us are having to self isolate or some may feel they need to stay home more.

As a nation so much has changed and that has caused a huge ripple effect throughout all sections of society.

For the first time in our memories, church buildings have been closed. Of course, since we’ve all been well-taught in Sunday school and church that the church is not the building but it is the people. Now, that truth is a much clearer reality.

Psalm 133:1 tells us “How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!”. Over the next few weeks we shall see how precious our unity and community really is.

So, if you are struggling with anything and would appreciate prayer or any practical help then feel free to email me pastor@cavershambaptistchurch.org.uk.

It might be to do with the Coronavirus or something totally unrelated. All you share will of course be in confidence and I promise not to bombard you with further emails.

As a church we pray for Caversham and all in the RG4 postcode but sometimes a personal prayer can be a huge comfort and help for some of us.

Pastor Colin Baker
