Sunday Morning Service
I hope and pray you are managing physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually at this very challenging time for us all.
We can’t wait to meet with you on Sunday morning. We are going to trial a number of different ways to try and connect us on a Sunday morning and see what works well.
We are still working on the ability to do some kind of live service and so you may see some updates in the coming weeks.
We have decided that trying to do a live worship set is too risky given the recommendations that have come through today from our government.
So we have decided to trial meeting on a Zoom call which I am informed can host 100 participants. If you have a lap top or computer Zoom works best on that. You can download the Zoom app on your laptop or phone or you can join the Zoom meeting by just clicking on the link.
Aaron Dowds is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
Topic: Vine Church Sunday Morning Service
Time: Mar 22, 2020 10:45 AM London
Join Zoom Meeting
When you join the Zoom call, you may have to turn on your camera. You can do this by putting your cursor to the bottom of your screen and clicking on the camera.
We trialled this with a smaller group through the week and it worked very well. Please have one device connected per household and the whole family can join in.
During the Zoom call I will mute everyone’s mic or it will sound a little crazy.
Lynsey and I will welcome you all. We will then share our screen and play worship with youtube videos. Let’s all imagine we are altogether as a family worshipping together and experience His presence together.
After worship we will share communion so please have some bread and wine/juice ready.
We will have a time of prayer for each other, our church, our city, nation and world. I may request to unmute a few of you and ask you to say a prayer for these.
We will then watch Jimmy Dowds as he brings us an uplifting message: Living in the Tomorrow.
After that we will come back together again and worship again.
For your children Mike and Claire have been working on a video for your kids. If it doesn’t come today we will get it to you next week.
We encourage you afterwards or before to have a children’s church with them and we are hoping to send you some resources to help with that. Life church have free resources and I’m sure there are many others:
If you cannot manage to get Zoom working you can join the worship videos and Jimmy’s message which will go live here on Sunday morning:
We will be able to use this platform to livestream once we have that capability but this Sunday the youtube worship and Jimmy’s message will play on here.
Jimmy’s message will also be premiered on Vine Church Facebook page on Sunday morning 11:45am
and on YouTube:
We are so looking forward to being together on Sunday morning and praying the technology works.
Please do have a go with Zoom. It’s pretty easy and straightforward to use and when we trialled during the week people of a wide age group could use it comfortable. Give it a go and see how it goes.
Many thanks and much love,
Aaron and Lynsey
