VBCI (UK) Statement On Novel Corona Virus

Following the outbreak of the Corona Virus in China and the spread to other parts of the World, we in Victory Bible Church International (UK) find it necessary to issue the following statements.

As a Christian Faith organisation we will continue to pray for the peace and prosperity of the United Kingdom and also abide by the authority and power in God’s word (1 Timothy 2:1–4, Exodus 8:22–23, Malachi 3:10–12 and Psalm 91)

In order to strike the right balance between faith and science, we will pragmatically follow the lead of the World Health Organisation and the directives of the United Kingdom’s government aimed at combating the spread of the Corona virus and ultimately bringing it to an end.

For detailed information from the World Health Organisation, please click here. 

The UK Government has also published information on the coronavirus. For details please visit the GOV.UK website.

Information on the symptoms and treatment of coronavirus, and advice for anyone who may have been exposed to it, can be found on the NHS website.

The NHS in England and Public Health England (PHE) are well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. Further information on the countries and areas affected by COVID-19 and implications for returning travellers or visitors to the UK can be found on the GOV.UK, please click here.

Everyone is being reminded to follow Public Health England advice to:

• Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.

• Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.

• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.

• Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.

As your brother’s keeper, please self-isolate and follow all the guidance on the NHS website if you are unwell or exhibiting any of the COVID-19 symptoms.

May God’s hedge of protection and preservation continue to be roundabout us in Jesus Name!!! Amen!!!
