Ian's Update 13 November 2020

Ian's Update 13 November 2020

Read the attached Update for details of:

Trial Results

Outlines The Garratt‑ Street experience and peoples’ responses to the experience. The result is the decision to carry on with Sunday services at the Garratt St Centre and on -line each Sunday and Christmas Day and then to revert to on-services only until resuming Garratt St Centre services on 31 January. Church on-line will continue.

The Update explains the reasons for the break for teams who have worked throughout the year and how ministry will look during January when I will be available and producing the on-line services.

Changes to restrictions

The changes to restrictions on 13 November 2020 to allow gatherings of 500 do not affect us as the Auditorium only has capacity for 52 as determined by the 4 sqmtr per person and 1.5 mtr distancing rules.

Looking forward with faith

I will be releasing a video explanation of conversations around our theme love God – love People and forward planning for whatever may come in 2021.

Message from Paul Kyalimpa

Love greetings

We very much appreciate you for the love grant of Ushs 3,522,000/ we received on 29th Sept 2020.

This comes in at the right time we are opening the school.

I have been busy on the issue of opening the school.

The Ministry Of Education is demanding lots of SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures) to prevent corona virus infecting children. We were checked and we got a certificate with 80% and we were told to provide what we did not have.

We are now open with primary seven 15 candidates who are due to sit for their final exam at the end of March 2021.

Thanks for the funds that has assisted us to put in place lots of SOPs to prevent corona virus infecting students..

Please convey my love greetings to all at TBC and we keep praying to our Lord Jesus Christ to keep you all safe and well.
