Now 'virtually' - The Place to Be

Keyworth Baptist Church

How has this week been for you, life is certainly different for all of us? As I have spoken to friends on the phone their response has been varied from fearful to rising to the challenge of the times. This week my attention has been drawn to the account of Jesus in the boat during a storm. In this short account four questions were asked. These questions speak powerfully to us today.

You may like to read the scripture in Mark's Gospel chapter 4 v 35-41.

This talk, by Rhydian Hapgood - a regular visiting speaker at Keyworth Baptist Church, explores whether now is the time be a different kind of church not focussed on meetings and worship but on being the people of God in the situations of today. He draws on those things which Christians have followed for centuries which have been a path for growth. His focus is on four inward and four outward disciplines or spiritual practices. The inner ones are meditation, fasting, study and prayer; the outward ones are simplicity, solitude, submission and service. Rhydian's talk is apt for a people locked-down. It lasts for 12 minutes and although it's aimed at Christians, hopefully there is wisdom in this for everyone.



With immediate effect, all face to face acivity at Keyworth Baptist Church is suspended in compliance with the Government announcement to cut out all non-essential activity to slow the spread of Covid 19.

However, we'll be increasing our online activity to encourage, spread cheer and comfort to those who are shut away in our community.

You are in our prayers.
