Emerging into the new "normal"

The United Reformed Church, has produced a helpful guidance document encouraging churches to consider key questions for when the lockdown starts to ease, including: what must resume, what shouldn't resume, and what might we do differently?

New reality, same mission

This second booklet from the United Reformed Church aims to enable individuals and local churches to explore, in more detail, questions of community presence and engagement and social justice in the new reality which we all face. It was produced by members of the URC's Church Related Community Work, Mission and Discipleship teams, along with Church Action on Poverty.
