Many in Blackley, and beyond, came together virtually for a time of worship, teaching and prayer on Maundy Thursday and Good Friday. The odd dropout of sound or video was an inconvenience for some but for many it was a much-appreciated opportunity to come together and enjoy fellowship and worship and extend their technical skills as well!
Going to church and the moment is simply not possible but being church is always possible. The Blackley Churches are determined to ensure that they continue to serve our community in these challenging times. Time and effort are being put into the production of our virtual services and it is encouraging that people have made comments such as "Lovely, beautiful and moving service".
Our virtual services are continuing to reach many more individuals than those who regularly join us Sunday by Sunday in our church buildings. Let us hope and pray that this continues to be a new way for us to share the love of God.
We are all looking forward to celebrating on Easter Sunday, please think about joining us at 11am via our Facebook page.
