Countess Free Church is Open, Serving and Gathering
The Countess Free Church is open – in fact it was never shut! The church is the people – ordinary people across the city – who follow Jesus. They have been coming alongside those who are hurting or need encouragement, they have been blessing in different ways big or small, and they have been connecting with each other across the city in diverse ways throughout the past year.
Now restrictions are relaxing, we are starting to use our buildings on Chapel Street more. The buildings have always been open, hosting Ely Foodbank, support groups, as well as church services when possible and appropriate.
Our parent and toddler group is open again, and our youth are meeting for their activities. Over the next few Sundays the church will be gathering sometimes in our building, and sometimes out in the open air in green spaces. We love visitors … and you would be welcome to join us on any of these occasions. Use the Contact Us page to send us a message, so we can let you know where we will be on any of the Sundays in June.
At the end of June, assuming that remaining restrictions can be lifted, we hope to have the whole church gather again at our buildings on a regular basis – being together as followers of Jesus.
Other groups are starting to hire the hall again – adding in their activities when it is safe and sensible to do so.
