ETCC, the coronavirus and the way ahead

(last updated 1st October 2020)

Following the Prime Minister's advice on Monday evening, it is with a heavy heart that we have decided to temporarily suspend our Sunday Morning service in our building until further notice. This is advice given in the best interests of public health and the welfare of our church community.

However, we have re-opened our building for our 5pm Sunday Service, which you can find more information about here.

Sunday Mornings at ETCC

Our 10am service no longer happens in-person but since March our Sunday services have moved to YouTube and Facebook. You will get the same Bible-driven preaching, songs, and prayers as usual. Click here for our YouTube channel, or click here to listen to the Sunday services.

Similar to Sunday Mornings, in-person prayer meetings and grow groups are suspended until further notice. However, these are still happening on Zoom - please email for more information, or for the zoom links to join.

Children and Youth Work at ETCC


Due to the restrictions of COVID-19, many of our 'normal' activities have taken a different look - with all our children and youth work taking place online, or virtually, over Zoom, or other methods.

We have recently launched the BIG BIBLE ADVENTURE! This is for primary school aged-children, who can join Glen and Steve as they discover BIG truths about Jesus with lots of fun along the way! You can find out more by clicking here.

Rooted is the name of our secondary school-aged youth work. This runs on a Friday evening, and due to COVID-19, is continuing over Zoom; please email for more information.

Apart from this, there is a Kids' Slot every Sunday Morning on our live stream, which can be found on our YouTube Channel, or on Facebook.

Womens Ministry at ETCC


Our Women's Bible study groups continue to meet online (see below) - please do join us if you can.  We'd also love to chat to you over the phone or (for as long as we're allowed) to meet up in person for a walk or a coffee, to pray together or to study the Bible.  If you would like to do this, please get in contact with us via the church office or by emailing or 

Our weekly Together women's Bible Studies continue online on a Thursday morning.   This term we're studying the book of Colossians together - seeing that CHRIST REALLY IS ALL WE NEED.  Join us to chat from 10am onwards, or for the study at 10:30am.  For further information, and/or the zoom link, please contact

Prayer and Care

We are keen to keep the praying life of church going. If there are things you would like the church to pray about, then please email We will endeavour to keep sending out a weekly prayer sheet so we can stay up to date in our prayers for one another and our mission partners.

At this difficult time we are aware that many will need spiritual comfort and support as well as practical help. Please make contact with your small group leader, with one of the elders, or make contact with the church office if you need some help. You could also email the welfare team directly Please let us know if you are unwell or self-isolating so that we can support you as best we can.

We would also encourage you to care for one another. Especially be attentive to those who don't have email and won't be getting our updates. If you are able to offer some more practical help please do let us know.
