This will both help reduce the spead of the virus and protect those members of the community most at risk.

We will:

  • Our Sunday gatherings will be facliltated via Facebook Live.  This will remain a closed group for both copyright and security reasons, please contact us if you wish to be added.  Copies of the main presentation will publically be made available on our YouTube channel.  Links will be added to these sites soon.
  • Facilitate prayer gatherings via telephone conference.
  • Grow our online presence to include small groups facilitiated by video conferencing.
  • Contact those who are part of the California family regularly to nuture community.
  • Support those of the California family who may struggle through the practicalities of self isolation.


  • We are the Church not the building.
  • Just because we are not gathering at 178 Stonehouse Lane does not mean the Church has closed!
