Jubilee Leadership update to Coronavirus pandemic April 2021

As the Covid-19 restrictions imposed to save lives are lifted, we still believe it is correct, right and biblical to support the government in its strategy to limit the impact of the virus across the nation.

How does this affect the way we meet?

Christianity is a lifestyle based on community and personal contact. We must therefore consider how to adapt our lifestyle to maintain interaction within the framework of the government advice and engage with each another safely.

Sunday celebrations

We do not yet have plans to restart meeting together in one location for Sunday celebrations, although we trust this will change soon. We will continue to make use of the Jubilee Studios for the broadcast of our central church celebrations and meetings. Details of how to connect as part of Jubilee Church gatherings is sent out via the website and email lists. Please make sure that you are registered with the Jubilee website and that you are on the email list – if you’re not then please use the form at the bottom of the page to get in touch with the office team.

Clusters and Home groups

We care for our people in clusters of smaller home groups. The home groups meet during the week and, for the foreseeable future, this will comprise a mixture of physical meeting and social media connection from homes. As the changing guidance allows, our groups will meet in gardens and well-ventilated spaces, and then indoors observing the social distancing measures.

If you are not part of a home group please contact us using the form at the bottom of the page.

Children’s and youth ministry

The Pod Children’s ministry connects via Zoom every Sunday morning and at other times during the year. For more information please contact our Children’s Leader Joani using the form at the bottom of this page.

The Habitation youth ministry meets every Friday night and at other times during the year. For more information please contact our Youth Leaders Brooke, Anna and Ben using the form at the bottom of this page.

Other ministries

Other ministries, such as Mosaic for the older generation (Mosaic stands for Mature Open-minded Sociable Adults In Connection), are meeting primarily using social media platforms, although physical reconnection is becoming possible as the restrictions ease.

Prayer and Support

As a church family we have been serving our neighbours and local community and looking after each other by meeting practical needs and offering friendship and support. We continue to pray for our nation and the nations of the world, for political and scientific leaders as they make difficult decisions, for healthcare staff and other public servants, and for those most badly affected by this disease. If you are in need of support or personal prayer, please call the church office or use the online contact form to get in touch.

Jubilee Live

We meet every Sunday from 10.30 to 11.30 to enjoy time together, worship and hear God’s word. We broadcast from our own studio, but use a Zoom meeting so that it’s less like a TV show and more like a group of people gathered together. For safety we only allow people we know and have a real life connection with to join the meetings, but guests are welcome to join us via a special view-only link.

If you’re looking to join a church family, or just curious about what we get up to, we invite you to register for a special link to join us this Sunday. If you want to join us for future meetings then please get in touch for a friendly chat so we can get to know each other.

Because we want everyone in our church family to stay safe online, we do ask you to register with our website. Don’t worry – we won’t contact you unless you ask us to – but we would love to chat and get to know you when you’re ready!
