THE 10AM SERVICE
Following the latest Government advice, we have resumed our in-person Sunday gatherings, with appropriate COVID-safe restrictions:
Currently everyone over the age of 11 must wear a mask (unless they have an exemption) except when taking part in leading the service (e.g. leading prayers, preaching, Bible reading)
Everyone must keep 2m social distancing from everyone outside their bubble. We space out the seating accordingly and operate a 1-way system through the building.
Everyone must sanitise their hands on arrival and check in for Test & Trace purposes
For the foreseeable future we will also be live-streaming our Sunday worship at 10am each Sunday on Facebook Live. You can tune in with or without a Facebook account, but if you are a Facebook user you will also be able to join in via the comments.
Every week we will also have a Zoom meeting straight after the livestream: a social catch up over coffee. The Zoom link will be posted in the comments towards the end of each livestream.
If you can't make it at 10am on a particular Sunday, you can also catch up on the service later on the videos section of our Facebook page.
Our Sunday morning gatherings this term will be suitable for all ages, including elements specifically for children and elements more geared towards adults.
The centre of all our services is the Bible, because we believe it is God's message to us containing everything we need to know for salvation (being brought into God's eternal family) and the Christian life (living as part of God's eternal family).
This term we will be digging into 1 Peter to see what we can learn about living in a culture where Christianity is a minority religion. Next we'll spend 4 weeks looking at what the Bible says about our identity as humans, before picking up where we left off before Christmas with the second half of the story of Abraham in Genesis 21-25.

For at least this term all our Sunday gatherings will be all-age: we'll feature child-friendly songs alongside adult songs, and we'll have teaching that engages children and adults. We will also provide weekly activity and craft sheets from the team at Mustard Seeds to help children engage with the teaching topic of the gathering. You can download these from our children's resources page.
We meet at:
Sherford Vale School, Hercules Road, PL9 8FA
