I was so happy this morning to be able to pop in to Firgrove. I managed to issue myself with an Essential Services permit and then go and deliver some grocery gift cards to our more vulnerable church members.

It was also a great joy to bless them with the gifts but an even bigger joy to actually see some of our guys, even if it was just for a few moments to hand over the cards and say "Hi' through their gates.  Having seen no one from The Gathering for a while it really blessed my soul to have just the briefest of contact with a few.

Hopefully the cards will help them all get through this week and then we can think about how we can help again next week.  For those that we gave the cards to today they have no income or received the paltry grant just over a week ago and are struggling financially.

Please pray for The Gathering's more vulnerable members who struggle at the best of times.

It was also great to have a ten minute chat with Errol as a co-leader of The Gathering and hear his feedback on our WhatsApp church Gatherings. They're enjoying it and appreciate the fact that the Gatherings are live in real time and any member can contribute during the Gatherings.  The encouragement was great and together we came up with some useful ideas on how to improve things and carry it forward to our post lockdown Gatherings.
