Throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, we have sought to adhere to all government guidance, putting all necessary measure in place to keep people safe.[Read more…]
Our lives continue to be hugely impacted by the spread of COVID-19. Here in Wales, we have been back in a state of ‘lockdown’ since just before Christmas.
We are very grateful to the Welsh Government for allowing places of worship to continue to meet during this latest stage. We believe that the gathering of God’s people to worship him corporately is a significant blessing – technology is great, and meeting ‘remotely’ has been far better than nothing, but nothing can replace the gathering of the church.
We are very keen to make use of the provision granted to us by the government, while also being very conscious of our part to play in the overall effort against the spread of COVID-19. We are also aware that there are an increasing number of people who are, due to their own circumstances, very wisely deciding to stay at home and join us ‘online’.
We have therefore decided the following:
- Our morning services will continue to be held physically in our church building. Booking is required to attend – strict attention is paid to COVID-19 guidelines to ensure the safety of all. These services will continue to be livestreamed on our YouTube page.
- Our evening services on 10th and 17th January will be held ‘online’. They will take place on Zoom and will also be live streamed on YouTube.
- Aside from our regular midweek meeting, all other ministries are suspended at present.
We trust that these arrangements will ensure our services are as accessible as possible to people in a range of situations, while also protecting the precious joy that is ours to gather together safely to worship. We will keep these arrangements under review – the elders will next review the situation on Monday 18th January 2021.
A new vaccine has given welcome hope to many this Christmas. The wonderful news about Christmas is that it reveals an even greater hope – an ‘Eternal Antidote’!
May we wish you a very happy Christmas, from all at Newtown Evangelical Church.
As a result of the ‘fire-break’ lockdown announced by the Welsh Government this week, we will not be able to meet together in the building on 25th October, 1st & 8th November, sadly.
During this time, we will continue to meet ‘online’. Services will be broadcast on our youtube channel. Please check our website and social media platforms for updates.
Once we are clear as to the guidance from Welsh Government following the ‘fire-break’, we will communicate our ongoing plans.
What a joy to know that we worship a sovereign God, who is the same yesterday, today and forever! Soli Deo Gloria.
2020 has been some year hasn’t it?! Much of what we took for granted has been shaken. And yet, the crops continue to grow, the sun continues to shine, the rain continues to fall – we have MUCH to be thankful for!
We will be celebrating the harvest this Sunday (27th September) – giving thanks to God, the giver of all good gifts.
We would love YOU to join us! Services are at 10am & 6pm. The morning service will be particularly suitable for families and children.
Due to social distancing measures, it’s necessary to layout the building to ensure safety. If you’d like to join us, please book your place by filling the form below.
Psalm 20v7-8: “Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God. They are brought to their knees and fall, but we rise up and stand firm.” Who, or what, are you trusting in at this time?[Read more…]
Following the advice and guidance issued by the government this week in response to the Coronavirus outbreak, the elders of the church have taken the difficult, but necessary decision to cancel all meetings at the church with immediate effect. This will be reviewed as and when the government’s advice changes.
During this time we will seek to have a weekly ‘service’ each Sunday morning which will be available online and via other forms of media. Please keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates. We will also be looking to send devotional articles and messages during the week. If you don’t currently receive emails from the church and would like to be included in these, please get in touch.
We will be looking to ensure that pastoral support is provided to all, and those in particular need are catered for. Please let us know if you have any specific needs that you’d like assistance with.
It’s really important that, during this trying time, we keep in touch with one another and seek to exhort and encourage one another (Hebrews 3:13) and bear one another’s burdens (Galatians 6:2).
Above all, we need to remember that our great God is in control, and that our times are in His hands. Keep looking to Him!
With love in Christ, from the elders.
This weekend marks the 40th anniversary since a group of believers began meeting as “Newtown Evangelical Church”. Since that day, God has been faithful for 4 decades, and for that we give him all the praise and glory.
We will be having a special “Anniversary Service” to mark this occasion this Sunday (10th March). Geraint Jones will be taking the service – Geraint was one of the founding members of the church.
We will also be having a buffet tea at 4:30pm. We extend a warm welcome to all to join us as we celebrate God’s goodness over 40 years.
“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.”
As part of “Project Proverbs” we’ll be learning and singing some of the songs on the children’s CD “Walking with the Wise”. So far, we’ve learnt 3 songs which we’ll be looking to sing in the coming weeks. Have a listen and familiarise yourself with them – there are some great truths in them!
