We’ve made this graphic to show everything we’re up to in this time – everyone is welcome to join in!
As you may have seen, we are using Zoom for many of our online gatherings at present. For those not familiar with Zoom here are some instructions which should help. If you’re still struggling do give Liz or David a shout and we’ll try and help you further.
You can join us online for Morning Prayer at 8:30 am and Night Prayer (Compline) at 9pm each week day. Use this link on your web browser, or download the Zoom app and use the link to join in.
You can just listen in, but if you would like to join in with the prayers, and have the Bible readings, they are available on the Daily Prayer app which can be downloaded on a smartphone.
As we go further into lockdown, we are streaming more and more through Facebook Live on our Facebook page. Some people are asking how they set this up – here’s a short video about setting up a Facebook account, then once you’re in head over to the All Saints page where the videos will go live. Note that you can watch our facebook livestream without having a facebook account! Just write www.facebook.com/allsaintswellington/ into the address bar to see our page- pop along around 10:25 on Sunday to see our services!
It is with great sadness that I have to let you know that, in line with the latest advice from the Church of England, all services at All Saints will be suspended until the worst of this outbreak is over.
The Archbishops have written to all of us, to encourage us to continue being church in different ways:
Two of our core values are Loving Each Other and Loving Our Neighbours. The next few months we are all going to be given opportunities to put these values into practice in new ways. Even when we can’t meet, let’s stay in touch, look out for each other, and reach out to support the vulnerable in our communities.
We will be live streaming a service of some kind on our Facebook page on Sunday morning at 10:30, that will include worship, prayers, and Bible teaching. We are also planning to recommend a video meeting solution for small groups that want to continue meeting virtually.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” Ephesians 4:6
If you have any questions or concerns, please do get in touch.
With the outbreak of Covid-19 across the nation and the world, we are praying for all those making decisions and for those who are elderly and vulnerable.
As a church, please be assured that we are following Government and Church of England advice closely.
At the moment, all activities are running, but we will update this page when we have to suspend anything.
Please do remember to wash your hands before coming along to any activities at church or in the parish centre.
We are live streaming morning services – at the moment these will be available to view on Facebook live via the All Saints Facebook Page. Follow us there to get all the latest updates.
If you have any pastoral needs, please do contact Tim Carter, the Vicar.
