Dear West View family
Tuesday evening’s announcement by President Ramaphosa regarding the second wave is a reminder to us to remain vigilant and not let our guard down as we seek to slay the giant that is Covid-19. We are monitoring the infection rate in Gauteng closely as we continue with both in-person and online worship through December.
SUNDAY, CHRISTMAS EVE AND CHRISTMAS DAY WORSHIP
We will continue with rigorous safety protocols at our in-person services. In-person Sunday worship continues at 8h00 and 10h00, whilst online worship premieres at 8h30. Onsite worship this Christmas includes a 6pm Crib Service on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day worship at 7h30 and 9h00. The online Christmas Service will premiere at 8h30. The offering at all four Christmas services will support Epworth Childrens Village (http://www.epworthvillage.org.za/)
GOING AWAY FOR CHRISTMAS?
Remember to send a photo or video of yourself on holiday to the West View WhatsApp number (072 537 2384) together with a written or video-ed Christmas greeting to the congregation. This will be shared with the online congregation on Christmas Day. The deadline for submission is 20 December.
We extend condolences to Este’ Mourinho on the sudden passing of Jose’. May God’s presence comfort and sustain you.
