Woosehill Church Covid 19 Update – 03/04/2020
You will be aware that the government has introduced measures aimed at preventing the further spread of corona virus, the effect of which is that our usual pattern of Sunday services and other midweek meetings is on hold.
There will, therefore, be no public church services at the church or church-run groups until further notice. We are very much still here though – if you need prayer please contact us on email@example.com or if you need any practical help call us on 0118 979 2122.
In the meantime, services will continue to be held on-line as follows:

Woosehill Church Home Group, a message from Geoff Peck
There is no weekly church at the moment, but we are now having the Monday night home group every week in our own homes. We would love as many people as possible to join us each Monday. We will be talking about the Easter story for the next few weeks. We are using Zoom for the meetings, so you will need to have Zoom installed on your phone, tablet or computer. I have to send an invitation for the Zoom meeting to all attendees, so if you are interested, please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to seeing you!
