COGOP UK RESPONSE TO COVID 19


Coronavirus/COVID 19

Coronavirus/COVID 19


Introduction

The Church of God of Prophecy UK is committed to doing all that it can to help reduce the spread of Coronavirus, (COVID-19).

In light of global precautions and to ensure we are adhering to the direction given by the UK Government and Chief Medical Officer, our church Board is monitoring the prevailing situation around this virus and meeting regularly to review how we can reduce risks and provide our membership population with practical precautions to prevent the spread of infection.

Public Worship Services

It is with regret that we have decided to suspend public worship services in the Church of God of Prophecy UK for the time being, in line with government guidance. As a leadership team we are looking at alternative ways to continue providing worship services and pastoral care.

Keeping you Informed

There will be a robust communication plan to ensure that our church networks are appropriately kept informed. As the advice from our government changes, then these guidelines will be updated, but we recommend that members take responsibility to regularly visit our church website and communications on the NHS website (https://111.NHS.uk).

Safety Measures

There are general principles you can follow to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:

Hand-Hygiene

Good hand hygiene is always vital in reducing the spread of this virus. Wash hands more frequently, for at least 20 seconds, in running water, with soap, and use hand sanitising gel. Only single-use hand towels should be used in your toilet facilities.

Also avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands and cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin and wash your hands.

Click here to download the NHS Hand Hygiene Poster to publish in your toilet facilities at your local church.

Routine Cleaning

We have released guidance to our local churches on how our sanctuaries are cleaned (deep cleaning and routine cleaning).  Extra attention will be given to high traffic areas especially metal surfaces like door handles, facia plates, microphones, and seats.

Click here to read cleaning advice from the government.

Protecting our Vulnerable Members

Government Guidance is under constant review and so Government guidance must be followed.  Current guidance includes:

  • Avoid non-essential travel and social gatherings
  • Those with existing medical conditions and 70 years old and above must self-isolate for 12 weeks
  • Pregnant and vulnerable adults should take additional precaution of social measures/distancing

The church will be taking a proactive approach to ensuring supportive and protective contingency measures are in place for all members, the elderly and vulnerable and all those who may need to be in isolation.

Social Distancing

Social distancing measures are steps that the government has asked that we take to reduce the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

  • Avoid non-essential use of public transport, varying your travel times to avoid rush hour, when possible;
  • Work from home, where possible;
  • Avoid large gatherings, and gatherings in smaller public spaces such as cinemas, restaurants, etc;
  • Avoid gatherings with friends and family. Keep in touch using remote technology such as phone, internet, and social media.
  • UK Gov Guidance on Social Distancing

Self-Isolation

  • According to NHS, if you have a NEW persistent cough or a high temperature you Must stay at home for 7 days
  • If you live with other people , they should stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person got symptoms
  • If you live with someone who is 70 or over , has a long term condition, is pregnant or has a weakened immune system please see https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/
  • If symptoms worsen or persist you may need additional help and may need more intensive intervention and services

If a member develops symptoms or is diagnosed with the virus

  • Please refer them to appropriate NHS advice. (https://111.NHS.uk) and as above
  • Please let your senior Pastor know so we can put the appropriate pastoral support in place

Supporting our Members

Pastoral Care

  • The Pastoral team will continue to be on hand to support our members. Pastoral visits will be selective and by prior arrangement taking into account advice provided by the government.
  • Funeral and wedding services will continue to take place, in line with government guidance.

Ministry and wellbeing of the elderly or those staying at home

  • The church will be taking a cell group and social action approach in partnership with existing community groups to ensure practical support is in place for all those who are vulnerable at this time.

Prayer for families and communities

  • We will be continuing prayers and prayer points for all families affected and further information will be shared of how you can engage with this programme.

Prayer Focus 

(Local/National/International)

Church of God of Prophecy is an international church family, operating at Local, National and International levels. As we find ourselves in this most difficult situation, we are concerned about our church family and people everywhere who have been adversely impacted. We are gathering information and learning from our church families around the world, who are currently facing severe difficulties and uncertainties around this situation. We do ask that we hold everyone up in prayers, particularly in those countries where the rate of infection of this virus is greatly advanced.

Hebrews 13:5 “Jesus said, I will never leave you nor forsake you,” that you may boldly say, the Lord is my helper.

‘Father in your name, we call on you today in the promise of your word. We pray for those who are at this time struggling with the fears and concerns around this virus. Father we act in belief and confidence in your promises, knowing that you have not given us the spirit of fear but of power and of love and of a sound mind. We therefore embrace the promise of your word, even in the midst of this time of uncertainty. We are still persuaded that your precious blood heals and makes whole. We pray for our church family: we pray for those in our communities who maybe feeling insecure and isolated. We pray for our decision-makers, medical experts, leaders national and international. Father we rest our cares in your hands, in the name of Jesus. Amen’

Letter to the Local Church at slough Britwell


I greet you in the Mighty name of Jesus.

Due to the current climate and Government guidelines. The church will be closed for Public Worship Until Further Notice. Please

We will be working together with the Churches in Britwell to provide support where necessary. We will also set up messages 

from the Ministers so that you can still be fed with the word.

Matthew 4:4


But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

I hope that all of us will turn our face unto the Lord  and remember what the Bible says 2 Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Remember we  are still here for you in light of the Government ruling on Social Distancing, please keep in touch with us and we 

are at present trying to make contact with as many of you as we can.

Also remember to observe the Government Guidelines on Self Isolation.

We cover you all by Prayer and we read Psalms 91 over each and everyone of you.

I ask that you do not grow weary in times like this but hold onto your faith in God. Read Psalms 91 for yourself over your household

 and only believe.

We hope to see you all again soon.

 

May the Lord bless and Keep you in Jesus Name.

DOMINOES CHAMPIONS


Slough Church successfully defended and kept the much converted  Dominoes cup over the May Day Bank holiday. 
We successfully defended against players from other churches from within the region which included Aylesbury and Reading etc.

We invite all comers to come and pit your skills and play for the cup.
We also invite other churches from any region to come for a friendly  game of Dominoes with us.
Well done Slough!
