Did you participate in our first ever live streamed worship?
Many in Blackley and beyond came together for a time of worship, teaching and prayer this morning using the wonders of modern technology. Admittedly, there was the odd dropout of sound or video but for many it was a much-appreciated opportunity to come together and enjoy fellowship and worship and extend their technical skills as well!
It was good to see our ministers, who only a week ago were expressing reluctance about being recorded never mind live streaming, getting to grips with leading worship in a different context.
Many comments were expressed regarding how grateful people were for the time and effort that had been put into making this event happen. Going to church and the moment is simply not possible but being church is always possible.
Here are just some of the comments we received:
"It was so emotional but enjoyed every moment. Thank you and stay safe"
"Well done with the online service, no need to have been nervous, looked and sounded very natural. In fact I think you've started something now.."
"Thoroughly enjoyed this morning's service. Great work to all involved. Looking forward to next Sunday."
"I found the service very moving. Thank you"
We give thanks to God for all members of our church family who are working hard to make sure that our community continues to be served by the Blackley Churches. It would seem the service reached many more individuals than those who regularly join us Sunday by Sunday in our church buildings. Let us hope and pray that this is a new way for us to share the love of God.
We are all looking forward to next week service, please think about joining us.
