Big News for Leith Valley Church

Richard Dawson, 20 March 2020

Dear Friends,

I have some rather big news for all of us who call Leith home.

The elders and staff have decided to close our regular weekly service meeting at George St Normal School for a month. We will review this near the end of April and keep you informed all the way.

In the meantime church won’t end - it will just make a new beginning. We will have some live-streamed worship on Sunday and I will be blog posting a video to you most days.

We will send out another email later today explaining everything in much greater detail. We are dividing the church into pastoral divisions we’re calling Network Groups whose main task will be to keep in contact with each other and meet occasionally for fellowship and possibly meals.

As you know, the government is trying to slow down any community based transmission of the disease and so meeting less often and in smaller groups is an attempt to promote this. We are supportive of this and any efforts which can save lives. Let us pray for our leaders that they may continue to make wise decisions and let's get on board with the decisions being made. Our Health Minister David Clark who is a Presbyterian Minister is doing his very best to keep things in control.

Tonight’s email will explain things in much greater detail. The staff are all still working hard and we are contactable through the usual methods.

God Bless you all and stay safe.

Richard Dawson
