In the light of the most recent Government advice that included the recommendation to 'stop non-essential contact with others and to stop all unnecessary travel', and being aware of our responsibility to care for the church family and act as good citizens we have taken the following decisions:

All church meetings are now on hold until further notice.

However, the Thursday prayer meeting will be live streamed only in an interactive conference call at 7pm.

This Sunday (22 March) the church will be closed for the morning service. Instead we will be live-streaming an act of worship on our website from Shield Church at 10:30am.

As we think through what it means to be a church family in these new circumstances we will be giving regular updates on the Shield Church website and by text as to how it affects individual ministries.

Please be praying that we will live through this as people of faith and will take what new opportunities God is giving us to hold out the light of Jesus to others.
