UCKG HelpCentres in England open for private prayers during lockdown

Thursday, 5 November 2020

Until 2 December, all UCKG HelpCentres in England will support their diverse congregations by remaining open for individual private prayers and by streaming services from their Finsbury Park headquarters in order to observe the new lockdown regulations.

The full time HelpCentres – as the UCKG’s churches are known – will be open for private prayers from 7am until 6pm Monday to Saturday and from midday until 5pm on Sundays. All services of communal worship are being replaced with an extensive programme of streamed services across four media platforms, seven days a week. The core services will be in English, and further services will be in Portuguese and Spanish for native speakers of these languages.

The schedule is as follows:

English services

These are held each weekday at 10am and 7.30pm, except Thursdays.

  • Monday – Independence Project (prayer for economic security)
  • Tuesday – Health Day
  • Wednesday – Spiritual Growth
  • Thursday – Family Day (10am) and Love Therapy (8pm)
  • Friday – Spiritual Cleansing
  • Saturday – Impossible Cases (10am)

Bishop Alvaro, the UCKG’s Bishop in Charge for the UK, will conduct the Wednesday and Sunday services in English and other services will be conducted by members of the UCKG’s pastoral team.

Bishop Alvaro said: “Throughout the pandemic, our priorities have been to ensure that no one who seeks our help and support is turned away and that our premises are fully COVID-secure, and we are continuing to do so for the next, four-week lockdown”.
