Sunday Services and Small Groups Update – Phase 4
I trust that you are doing well during this unusual time the world is experiencing right now. Even though we might not be gathering together in person yet, you are never without a testimony of God’s goodness. Like we see in Psalm 19:1-2 “The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make him known.” This is the good God we serve. He is revealing Himself to us in many ways.
But, during this unprecedented time we need to make certain decisions. As you probably know already, there have been some changes around the regulations for the lockdown due to another increase of COVID-19 infections in our country. The leadership team of Every Nation Gent has been following the regulations closely together with the VVP and the Federal Senod to make sure we comply with all regulations.
Since early July we have been planning to reopen our Sunday Services at Sint-Jansvest in August after some regulations were eased up. However, due to the developments over the last week with regards to the infections increasing and a possible second wave, we’ve decided to postpone reopening our services. Unfortunately this is a decision we need to make. Please believe us, we have not come to this conclusion easily.
We miss gathering together with you, our spiritual family. But as long as this situation continues, we are blessed with the age of technology that makes it possible for us to meet together online. Therefore our online services will continue until new decisions and regulations allow us to come together again.
Until then, we encourage you to meet together in your small groups online and, for some, in person. For those meeting together in person, please do comply with the regulations stipulated by the government.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
This service is open to anyone but if you have children between the ages of 2,5 and 12 years, you should rather come to the family service at 11:30. Young families with children younger than 2,5 years are still welcome as they can play in our parents’ room while mom or dad follow everything in the main service through a live television link. Please note there will be no children’s ministry in this service.
During the family service the kids and teens have their own activities. The What’s Up Kids Club is geared for children between the ages of 2,5 to 12 years of age. These kids will meet upstairs for an hour packed with great fun and impartation while the parents stay downstairs. Our teenagers, aged 12 – 18 years of age, also meet during this time slot at the church venue. Due to safety regulations this service is limited to 80 adults as the overflow area is not available.
Go to François Laurentplein or Grote Huidevettershoek for parking. If there is no space, you can park underground at Gent-Zuid or Kouter.
