‘… Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” (Josh 1:9)

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” (Ps 91:1-2)

 

As you know, from November 5th (Thursday) we will be entering a 4 week nationwide lockdown.

    General Advice 

    In the event of you having you having either a high temperature or a new, continuous cough, stay at home or go home immediately.
    If you are a member of LifeSpring staff, let your line manager know ASAP.
    If you have attended LifeSpring gatherings at The Pavilion or elsewhere, please let the leader or your LifeGroup leader know ASAP.

  3. The following link is the governments advice as to who is  considered vulnerable  The government advise: 
    • Wash your hands frequently 

    Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water. 

    • Maintain social distancing 

    Maintain at least 2 metres (6 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing. 

    • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth 

    Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick. 

    • Practice respiratory hygiene 

    Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately
