Dear WPCBC family
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all of our public gatherings are suspended until further notice. This includes all official WPCBC activities such as youth group, Brigades, camps, seniors’ morning teas, bible studies, men’s and women’s breakfasts.
This decision raises the important question of how it will affect our spiritual lives.
As a “holy nation” (1 Peter 2 v 9) we are meant to be together. In Hebrews 10 v 24-25 we are commanded to gather so that we might encourage one another in our Christian lives.
It is because we recognise the importance of being regularly gathered under God’s word that we will continue with ministry in different ways.
To be kept up to date please register to receive our regular emails. You can send your email details to firstname.lastname@example.org
We are continuing online. Sundays now run through the livestreaming link on our website. Each service will run for an hour. Online services are as follows:
9.30am for Sunday mornings
4.00pm for Sunday afternoons (Indonesian)
6.30pm for Sunday evenings.
Here is the link to live streaming on our website (no password is required): wpcbc.net/live-streaming/services

3) Care for the elderly and those shut in
The deacons are working on a system to provide help to those who are debilitated because of the pandemic. It is biblical that our relatives provide help in the first instance but the church family also looks after one another. Our regular email also contains more information about care for those in this situation.
Lastly, let us remember that the Lord is in control. Consider these words from Keith Mathison:
“The world is fearful and anxious, but it is fearful and anxious about the wrong things. The world is fearful about the economy. The world is fearful about retirement accounts. The world is fearful about natural disasters and man-made disasters. The world is fearful of terrorism, and the world is fearful of diseases like the coronavirus. The world, however, is not fearful of God. Jesus tells us that we are not to fear those who can kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Instead we are to fear God who can destroy both (Matt. 10:28).”
If you are a believer, you have nothing to fear, for you are under the care of the One who rules all things and who loves you so much that He gave up His life on the Cross so that you can live eternally.
I write this to you all on behalf of the officers of our church expressing our deep concern for each one of you. Our prayer is that our Heavenly Father will keep you well physically and, more importantly, spiritually.
With Christian love
Craig, along with the WPCBC officers
