  • How we are doing in the COVID-19 pandemic

Reflecting on the pandemic, write down your thoughts on the opportunities that the current pandemic has provided.

  • How has it changed you thinking about life in general?
  • What new skills have you learnt and how did you us them?
  • What opportunities has it provided to serve?
  • Have you made any new contacts/friends?
  • Have you reconnected with old friends/relatives?
  • What opportunities has it presented in relating with your neighbours?
  • What feelings of common purpose do you see in the church/neighbourhood/community?

Prayerfully,

reflecting on what you have written, thank God for the new and creative ways He has enabled you and the Fellowship to shine the light of Christ in the midst challenges caused by the pandemic. 

  • Life after COVID-19

Many people across all the spectrum of life agree that the world will not be the same after the pandemic. In a recent YouGov poll, only nine per cent of Britons want life to return to 'normal' once the lockdown is over. See what others are saying,

 ‘The great test all countries will soon face is whether current feelings of common purpose will shape society after the crisis.’   – Financial Times editorial

For many, this is a moment of spiritual awakening, and in the past, spiritual awakenings have so often gone hand in hand with social renewal………….And yet, as a seed falls to bring forth new life, we believe that hope is beginning to emerge from this crisis.              – Tear Fund

 “After so much suffering, so much heroism from key workers and the NHS, we cannot be content to go back to what was before as if all is normal. There needs to be a resurrection of our common life.” – Archbishop of Canterbury Easter sermon

And as churches and communities adapt to find new ways to be a light in the darkness, many are beginning to wonder what life might look like afterwards. Do you think the current pandemic is a chance to create a new normal?

As people of God we can speak prophetically to our communities, forming a vision for a way forward.

Prayerfully,

  • Reflect on what God what is revealing to you through how you are experiencing the current crisis
  • Think where God could be calling you to join in with His work after the crisis

Write down any thoughts, visions, ideas on; -

  • How God might be calling you to serve the Church and community
  • How CHBC Fellowship is being called to do to spread the Gospel. And serve the community
  • How the CHBC and our community will look like after the pandemic
