Belvoir Parish Church
Love God. Love People.
11am Scattered Together - Live Online
Welcome to our website, if you are part of the Belvoir family. Welcome to the Belvoir website if you are visiting here or just having a nosy around. Whatever brought you here, you are very welcome, and we hope you immediately feel as if you belong. We just want to be family.
Everything about life feels very different at the minute. We are all nervous and apprehensive, maybe even frightened. Humanity in general and individual people are nothing if not adaptable. Although we would never wish the present health threats on anyone, we (the human race) will be trying our best to adapt and find ways through and beyond this. This is achieved by people just like ourselves setting about the task with courage, creativity and communitivity (I may have invented that word). We can’t solve it all, but we can take responsibility for our bit of it.
Here in Belvoir Church we are trying to…
RETHINK - what does it mean to be church since we can no longer gather in large groups and maybe not even in small groups.
REPLACE – we have decided not to cancel anything. Rather we are going to try to replace what we did before, and even what we had planned, with other things that we can do. I have already had a choir practice and a prayer meeting on my phone. Mothering Sunday flowers will come to you rather than you come to them. Wait till you see what we are doing on Sunday!
REVIEW – We have already seen the situation changing and arrangements for life having to be changed. Let’s agree now that change is here to stay. Let’s respond and adapt as we go along.
RENEW – one day things will be improving, and we will want to embrace what we have learned and become, rather than simply return to the way we were. I may never go back to watching paint drying on my TV screen, now that I have realised how much I don’t need to watch it.
Anyway, let’s see how God works with us through these challenging days to create a new church and maybe even a new nation and world.
