At the East Midlands Synod meeting, Rev’d Dr. John Bradbury [the recently appointed General Secretary of the URC] gave an address considering some important questions concerning our current experiences and the future, under the title:
Covid-19, Exile and Resurrection:

You may find his words and approach to be comforting, stimulating, challenging and hugely relevant to our lives as Christians, members of local United Reformed Churches and the church universal today – as well as relating to the future of our local churches. He reflects on words of Jeremiah and part of John’s story of the resurrection in these contexts, and asks us to do the same. The link is below:
Please take time to listen prayerfully to John and, perhaps, later to reflect with others on what he says to us.
