In the words of Reverend Al Sharpton, “George Floyd’s story has been the story of black folks for many generations…” Although some elements of our story in the U.K. may be different, we do have a story and we identify and stand with our brothers and sisters in the US.

Coronavirus and Church Services
As the COVID Pandemic continues to affect our way of life we just want to give an update regarding our arrangements for church services. Firstly, we would like to acknowledge and extend our deepest condolences to the many families of members, friends, and all who have died over the past year. Their memories are forever etched in our hearts. May they rest in God’s eternal peace.
The current government guidelines permit worship to take place in church buildings as long social distancing and other risk measures are in place. Here at Aberdeen Street we have conducted an extensive risk assessment and have put all the necessary safeguards in place to minimize the risk of spreading Coronavirus infection. These include temperature checks, hand sanitisers, contact registration, one-way systems , social distancing, and cleaning.
However, having assessed the current spread of the virus, the trustees of the Church of God of Prophecy U.K. have taken the decision to suspend congregational worship for the time being. This decision was taken in an attempt to reduce the risk of spreading the virus. We are continuing to stream our Sunday services from the building with only a limited number of staff and those taking part in attendance. Anyone wishing to join us in worship on Sundays or Tuesdays, should do so via Zoom or YouTube. The zoom ID for our Sunday service is: 882 6625 3226, YouTube via our channel by searching for Worship Division on Youtube.
With regards to baby dedications and water baptism, we are not able to conduct these ceremonies at the moment. However, we are currently looking at ways we can conduct these safety in the near future if the lockdown continues.
As you are aware, the government is currently providing vaccination for the population. Much controversy surrounds the decision whether or not we should take the vaccine. We are aware that many in our church and community members have already received the vaccine. At the same time, while some are undecided, there are some who remain skeptical. This skepticism is often driven by misinformation and mistrust. While, given our history, our mistrust may be understandable, we need to ensure that our decisions are based on accurate information from credible sources. We cannot tell you what to do in this matter, however, we know of no good reasons why you should not take the vaccine if you wish to do so. Please consult your doctor if you have any concerns regarding a possible allergic reaction.
In the meantime, stay safe, stay blessed. Remember.
“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble” (Psa. 46:1)
From the Aberdeen Street Pastoral Team
Senior Pastor, Bishop Paul McCalla
Here at Aberdeen Street, we are a warm, friendly and welcoming congregation of ordinary people whose lives have been transformed by God’s grace. Our aim is to worship and serve God in Spirit and in truth. To serve each other and our community through love and practical support.
We would like to extend a personal invitation to you to visit us at Aberdeen Street and join us in worship; you will be warmly welcomed.
We are committed to bringing others into a loving relationship with God, to help them grow in their love and knowledge of God and work with other Bible-believing Christians in the essential work of Kingdom ministry. Matthew 28:18-20 and Acts 1:7-8.
Our prayer is that you will find favour with God in every area of your life. May His blessings surround you as you seek to find His will and purpose for your life.
We look forward to seeing you.

The arrival of a new baby brings such joy and excitement to the family. It is always a privilege for us to have the opportunity to share the thanksgiving and celebrations with families. We look forward to sharing your joy and partnering with you.
