Response during COVID

Response during Covid-19

Finding church and finding Christ in the midst of this ever-changing storm

The Covid-19 pandemic has caused us to step into our calling as a 21st century online church. 

All mid-week church meetings and small groups are on Zoom. Please let us know if you would like to join any Zoom meeting we can assist you to connect. See the contact details below.

Our Sunday morning church service is at 11:00 am face to face if you have booked a space, or online via Livestream or on Facebook, YouTube or Twitter. At our Sunday service, we will have worship and a time of prayer, with a gathering around the word.

We are also providing members and friends access to online teaching materials through https://www.rightnowmedia.org/CustomLibrary/24540. Please email us if you would like access to this online resource.

Please email us at rcf@e-runnymede.co.uk or ring the Church office 01784 637010 to request access to any Zoom meeting, to book a seat at a Sunday morning service or if you have any questions.

Have You Been Affected By COVID-19

So many in our community have lost their jobs or lost loved ones due to the Coronavirus pandemic. If you are hurting from the pandemic. Fill out the form with whatever your needs are, and Runnymede Christian Fellowship will see what we can do to help alleviate some of your pain. At the very least we promise that we will be praying for you!


Help Impact Our Community

As you know COVID-19 has hit our community hard. Many families in our church have members in the medical community, and others have lost their jobs. We've even had several families who've incurred medical bills from fighting for their life. At times like this those who are healthy often feel helpless against the odds, but there is something you can do.


Let's Join Together

As a church, we've decided to come together to put together a COVID Relief fund to buy PPE for our medical professionals and provide financial support to those who've lost their job or are dealing with additional bills. If you've got a few extra pounds consider donating them to our relief fund. We'll handle it from there.


Here's how to help:


  1. Choose how much you want to give
  2. Let the office know you are making a gift
  3. Submit your gift.


Thank you for your generosity!



Some thoughts and Insights

Point One: Each one of us can think about how we can protect and support our neighbours. So much of the public rhetoric is sowing fear about the danger of other people. So, taking all the official precautions, offer help and reassurance to others (whilst following guidelines) – and don’t demonise anyone or any group.

Point Two: Think about who may be suffering more than me. For those of us who are healthy, there is much less to worry about but the elderly, the housebound and those with chronic health conditions may be very anxious. How about each household considering those you know and sharing out the responsibility to phone/video call them each day. There’s nothing like a friendly voice to offer solace when someone is worried. A smile can bring cheer, even on the phone. If you visit, follow all the official precautions or don’t go.

Point Three. Don’t give in to panic and start hoarding food. There is plenty to go around, so practise the Christian discipline of sharing. Ask your neighbours what they need and do your best to help them get it. If you are self-isolating you will, of course, need some supplies.

Point Four. Live today to the full. Encourage one another. None of us ever know what the future holds. In the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 6. 25 – 34), Jesus challenged his followers to live each day fully and not be afraid. Every time we are tempted to give in to fear we need to make a conscious choice to respond in faith, trust and openness.

And, don’t forget to pray.
