Hello Presence family,
We hope you’re doing well and we wanted to give you an update following recent government guidelines. We are postponing all weekly church gatherings, and are encouraging everyone to follow the governments advice regarding social distancing and making unnecessary trips outside your home. As challenging as these times are, we are convinced one of the most loving things we can do for loved ones, our city and the rest of the world is to keep as physically healthy as possible. It also means doing things that keep your mental health, and spiritual health strong in these times. We all need health in our bodies, our inner lives and our relationships. We still need each other especially during this crisis and that is a big part of the challenge we all face. We are all hardwired for connection with others and relationships. The Presence Leaders will be creatively thinking of ways to stay connected to you, and for you to stay and grow in relationship with us. We will now be doing an online Sunday evening meeting from our leaders homes via Facebook live, as well as online lifegroups via Zoom. See the links in the menus and on Facebook for more information of how to connect with us in those.
We’re still expectant for God to meet with us as we worship and pursue His presence in our homes.
We encourage you to continue spending time with God in your homes with whoever you live with and do not give up on seeking him and his Kingdom. This world needs it now more than ever.
We are living in unique times and we as the Presence family, want to focus on the hope that we have in Jesus. Please do utilise messaging, phone calls and online platforms to reach out to support anyone you know who is self isolating. Community may look different temporally but we will continue to pursue the Kingdom of God together.
We are with you and haven’t gone away.
Remember that you are deeply loved. You are needed. You are wanted. You are a gift.
Stay in touch, and stay strong.
More than every before, we all need chose to Love God, Love People and Live loved.
Shane and Karen & The Presence Leadership Team
