Nordic Church closed until further notice, due to Corona virus threat
Mar 9 @ 3:00 pm – Apr 22 @ 11:00 am

URGENT
IMPORTANT NOTICE

Due to the Corona virus threat, the LiNC Board has taken the decision to cancel all gatherings and events at the Nordic Church and Community Centre, with immediate effect till further notice.

This decision was not made lightly, but, in the light of the reality of the center’s ability to fulfill the recommendations and guidelines laid out by various government and local community health specialist guidelines, it was felt best to close the church and cancel gatherings in order to safeguard both the voluntary personnel as well as the visiting public, many of whom fall in the vulnerable category.

All events are hence cancelled or postponed till future notice.
This includes Wednesday coffee morning, language schools, the Film Club evenings and Church services as well as other gatherings.

Stay well, stay safe. See you all before long in happier circumstances.

Dear all,
We are awaiting the government’s decisions of opening up society on 21 June.
Meanwhile there can only be 30 people present in a church building at the moment, so we await new regulations allowing us having more activities in the church. Please phone 07570853314 to ‘book a seat’ for Sunday services for now.
We are looking for volunteers to help us out with serving and cleaning at coffee mornings, film nights, craft groups, etc, please contact above number if you can help in any way.
Welcome back soon to the Gustaf Adolf Nordic Church at Park Lane!

Roger Metcalf, LiNC and Stan Royden, GANC
