Updated 28 March 2020
On Monday 23 March, Prime Minister Boris Johnson ordered the immediate closure of all non-essential businesses, and also places of worship.
In order to stay connected with our Church family, and provide both practical and spiritual support, we will continue to host Sunday morning worship services, daily devotionals and a new Warehouse TV programme every Wednesday on our website, Facebook and YouTube channels.
We know that in the natural world the current situation is very challenging and stressful for many, but we want to encourage you to keep your eyes fixed on Jesus in this season. He is your source of joy, peace, strength and provision and is faithful to his word.
“Now, because of you, Lord, I will lie down in peace and sleep comes at once, for no matter what happens, I will live unafraid!” (Psalm 4:8, TPT).
Although we can’t physically meet at present, ‘Church doesn’t stop, it just gets better!’
We are introducing a number of ways in which you can stay connected or request support in this season:

SUPPORT FOR OUR CHURCH FAMILY
We are aware that many of our church family may be experiencing challenges in their professional and home lives due to the coronavirus pandemic.
During this season, we will be supporting you by:
Staying in touch. Our leadership team and ministry leaders will be checking in with you to make sure your spiritual and practical needs are taken care of.
Distributing hampers containing essential supplies to those in need both in our church family and also the wider community. Our Storehouse team is receiving and distributing food and other supplies where they are most needed. We’d like to thank all who have given generously to support us, including Marks and Spencer, Lidl and Aldi.
Setting up virtual Small Groups so you can meet with others for fellowship, and receive the word of God and prayer together. We will be releasing more details about these groups soon!
As a member of The Warehouse Church, you have free access to RightNow Media. Known as “the Netflix of Christian Bible study”, RightNow Media is a streaming library of powerful Biblical video content for you and your family to build your faith in this season!

Over the next week, you will be given access to My ChurchSuite - your personalised member dashboard, helping to keep you connected to the TWC family!

Here is the the latest government and NHS advice on how to stop the spreading of coronavirus:
Stay at home to stop coronavirus spreading
Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus.
You should only leave the house for one of four reasons:
shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible
one form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household
any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home
How to stop infection spreading
wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
wash your hands as soon as you get back home
cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards
do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean
