Update from DBC leadership
“I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel...being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus” - Philippians 1:3-6.
These words written by Paul to a church that he loved and cared about deeply, reflect our own thoughts and feelings for the DBC church family.
Eoghan and I just wanted to give you a little update regarding Sunday services on the DBC YouTube channel, the daily evening reflections, pastoral care and other news and initiatives.
Eoghan and I have a list of all the over 70’s, the vulnerable and those with underlying health issues and we plan to phone people on this list on a weekly basis. We have divided the list into two and at the end of each week we will alternate the two lists between the two of us. If you have any concerns or needs please do not hesitate to contact one of us or leave a message on the church office phone which will be answered every week day morning.
