We are living in what to us seem like unique times. However, on may occasions in its history, the Church for various reasons has had gatherings of believers in homes. Now is our time!
With the current (and wise) restrictions the Government has put in place, it is not possible to meet physically together. However, with the blessing of technology physical distancing does not need to mean communal or social distance.
Beginning Friday 3 April @ 6.30pm, we are going to be using the Zoom platform to meet collectively on Fridays fortnightly.
If you are new to Zoom – its probably easiest to think of it like a building: a space where we can all gather together. But rather than getting in your car and driving to the building, you just jump on your device and ‘Zoom’ there.
The great thing about the Zoom platform is that it gives us maximum flexibility depending on how tight Government restrictions on movement and gatherings may be at any one time. If restrictions partially lift, we might be able gather in groups of 10 – 15 in homes and Zoom in from there, but under the current restrictions, we are encouraging each individual/family to Zoom in. Even if you are self-isolating, you can join us!
Here is the link to join the church gatherings on Fridays @ 6.30pm. https://zoom.us/j/4758350652.
If you haven’t already, in preparation to gather, you might want to download Zoom onto your phone / laptop / device of choice.
These service swill include components of music, the Word and prayer. We will send out an order of service on our social media in the week leading up to the gathering.
If you have any tech problems with Zoom, feel free to email email@example.com.
Jeremiah 17:7-8 says:
7 “But blessed are those who trust in the LORD and have made the LORD their hope and confidence. 8 They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit.
