The communion part of our service originally took place live on Zoom from 11:30am on Sunday morning. For those using the service later on, here is a communion video to use instead. You will require bread and wine (or equivalent) to fully take part.
This Evening: Café Service
We held our first Café Church of the academic year on Zoom at 6:30pm, on the theme of Definite Uncertainty. Coping, surviving and even thriving in lockdown (including how God changed the world with letters written by Paul during his house-arrest). The content of our café services is predominantly interactive with live music, discussion in breakout groups and opportunity for reflection. We are planning to have similar services roughly once a month on Sunday evenings. The next one is due to be on 18th October.
The Baptist Union of Great Britain are holding a short prayer broadcast every Wednesday evening at 7pm. The link for this week's broadcast (and recordings of previous ones) should be available at this page on the Baptists Together website.
There will be a craft activity for children to do following the family talk in next week's service. To do it, you will need a newspaper or plain paper, sellotape and scissors.
This week's sermon is the fourth in our current series, Be Confident in God. If you missed any of the previous sermons or our recent series on Listening to God, or if you wish to listen to them or watch them again, you will find them all here (along with links to the services they were originally in):
