Message from the GLBC leadership team regarding the coronavirus outbreak
In line with government guidance, all meetings including Sunday services at Green Lane Baptist Church, in Burrowes Street, Walsall are cancelled until further notice due to the Covid-19 situation.
Our deacons are contacting regular worshippers to inform them and check on their welfare.
With regret due to our supermarket supplier being unable to continue free bread distribution Mend-it is now completely suspended.
Mend-It usually attracts around 80 visits per week for drop-in, free bread, English speaking, sewing and craft classes, and keep fit.
We will continue to update the wider community via this website, Press announcements and via the Mend-It Facebook site. Regulars will also be contacted via texts and phone calls.
In a leadership team message minister the Rev Sarah Bingham said: “We should follow the guidance to halt all our midweek and Sunday activities, for the sake of the most vulnerable. We will need to find creative ways to stay in touch, offer pastoral care and keep ‘feeding’ the flock.
“Let’s keep praying, keep thinking and work out how we can have worship and a members’ meeting without actually meeting. Be blessed and a blessing!”
Miss Bingham added that decisions over funerals booked at the church will be a matter for funeral directors and the bereaved families concerned, in line with prevailing government advice.
Finally, a comforting word about God which is printed on the GLBC 2020 verse card says, “Leave all your worries with him(God), because he cares for you.” 1Peter 5:7
