TENERIFE MAY 2021.
South Tenerife Christin Fellowship is regularly on the Church prayer list which is included in the BBC magazine so we thought you might appreciate a bit of an update on the situation there.
During the pandemic, as with our services here, there has been considerable disruption, not least because the usual system of using visiting preachers for a month at a time has not been possible due to flight restrictions, cancellations and other regulations. However, the Church has still been meeting in a socially distanced way and with masks. Singing, however has been allowed. David MacDonald, the chair of Trustees, from South Yorkshire has been there for much of
the time and has been sharing the preaching with Tom Edgar and Alan Parker, fellow Trustees who live in South Tenerife. He has now returned to the UK. Attendances are about 30 or so local people. Many of the midweek services and activities also continue in a socially distanced way. It is hoped to resume visiting preachers from the UK in mid-June. It remains to be seen thereafter how many visitors there will be to the Island and therefore the size of the
congregation. We can praise God that the services have continued to meet the need of local believers and the occasional visitors and pray that more will be able to return to the Church in the coming days. In the meantime we can also pray for Alan and Tom as they preach week by week.
