Beulah Church and Canolfan Community Hall

Due to Covid 19 the leadership of the church are following the government guidelines and suspending worship for the time being. Remember that the church is not the building; it is the people. We will remain connected through the gift of technology. We are also creating a list of people who can help if someone finds themselves in need of shopping/medicine, etc.

Please continue to watch this space for connections to worship, prayers, and reflections offered in this challenging time.

We look forward to connecting again in person at the appropriate point in the future.


In the meantime you can follow our regular Pastorate 'blog' from Martha.

Message from our Minister:-

Dear friends,

Church is closed due to Coronavirus.

With real sadness the Elders and I have decided that we should close the church premises in response to today's Government briefing about the Coronavirus outbreak.

All of the groups that hire our premises are being notified about this. All of our own groups and activities are
suspended from now on until further notice.

We do not have control over homegroups who meet in homes rather than on the church premises, but we do
urge you to make a decision that best protects the health and wellbeing of every person in your group, as
well as their families who would also be affected by your choices.

What happens about worship, pastoral care etc?

We will not be meeting at church on Sunday for worship. I hope to sort out something online that will be
helpful, but that's a task for the coming days.

We have not had chance, yet, to address any of the other practicalities ...we will be looking at ways to be
church in these unusual times. And when we have more information we will let you know.

But for now the best thing to say is simply this:

Keep in touch with one another, and keep praying for one another.

Remember, this is temporary

Nobody knows when churches will be able to resume gathering to worship. But a worldwide virus outbreak
does not mean that Jesus has fallen off his throne! He remains King and we are a people of hope who
constantly look forward to the day when he will bring sorrow and sickness to an end and make all things
new.

In the meantime we are called to live our daily lives in a way that demonstrates that he really is our Lord and
our Saviour. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine
or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written:

‘For your sake we face death all day long;
we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.’

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that
neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,
neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God
that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8:35-39 (NIVUK)
