In a world of technology and connectivity, there is an opportunity to use a platform — like this website — to bless people at this time of crisis.
It’s early days, but we, here, at GCC Online are already making plans for content that we hope will help and inspire you.
With church gatherings cancelled, schools closing, and more and more people working from home, or maybe out of a job altogether, it’s important that we take care of ourselves and each other – physically, mentally and spiritually.
We’re thankful for what was, probably, God-given wisdom to make this website a resource rather than a brochure. As a result, we’ve already got hundreds of hours of talks available to listen to here on the website, and on your favourite podcast platform.
We’ve got lots of articles to read.
And don’t forget our Ordinary People podcast!
Because our church gatherings are so family-focussed, it doesn’t feel right to broadcast them in their entirety to everyone. For our church family, we do plan to meet together online as best we can and in a way that is interactive as possible.
With these, we are looking forward to being able to share content from our church family. They could be tips for homeschooling your kids over the next few months, advice for working from home, ways to keep your mind and body active.
We don’t have to spend all our time on screens either. We are free to go out for a walk, get some exercise. And read books!
Of course, we want to share, teach and learn around God’s word. Prayer is going to be a much bigger part of our church life.
As well as looking after ourselves wisely, let’s stick together as a community. Make a point of phoning a friend or a neighbour, and if you have it, why not do a Skype or FaceTime call? Or pop a note through a neighbour’s door to say you’re thinking about them, and let them know you can be contacted if they need anything.
