Service Pattern for September
We will trial the following pattern in September and experiment, review and adapt as we go:
Online Services: Our online services will be continuing. These will be available from 8:30am every Sunday morning here
Sunday 10am Service at All Saints (as currently) with liturgy, Holy Communion and some reflective music. Open to anyone at either church looking for an in-person ‘live’ service.
Sunday 10:30am at St Andrew’s – Interactive in-person showing of the pre-recorded service with children’s work (5-10’s) and younger youth (11-15s) work. This is an opportunity to gather corporately to watch/participate in the pre-recorded service together, and we will experiment with the service host or others leading some components in person (e.g. response/prayer ministry; prayers, extra reflections, doing the sermon live on occasions, Holy Communion in person etc.). It might seem strange initially, but we will experiment and see how it best works and this means whether watching in church or at home, we will all be experiencing largely the same worship.
Sunday evenings (time to be decided) Older Youth Work (15-18s) session at St Andrew’s
The young families’ video and children’s resources will also still be being produced and on the website each week and also accessed on our Young Families You Tube Chanel here.
From Sunday 20th September…
9am ‘Early Bird Church’ – in the St Andrew’s Church Hall. A special 30-40 minute service aimed at children under 8 and their families. This would consist of a story, a craft, some singing (if allowed) or actions and prayers in socially distanced family groups.
