During this current situation of lockdowns due to COVID19 parish churches have had to look at different ways of "being church".
Since the start of the lockdown Christ Church has been embracing modern technology in order to serve the parish of Sowerby Bridge.
Our Churchwarden Peter Henry said "Each day the vicar has been bringing us daily readings via our church prayer and support group on WhatsApp, whilst each Sunday her service is from her study. Members of the congregation have also got behind this and are featured in one or two of our services. But our issue was coffee morning, how to make this a new norm. to achieve this we have been using zoom, as a way for us all to see and chat with each other, like we would on any normal coffee morning. Each week we send an invite to our members, inviting them to click on the link and join us."
Moving forward, the link will also appear on our calendar invites, so like our coffee mornings, anyone can pop in for a brew and a natter.
You do have to provide your own biscuits and brew, but the natter is free. Why not check our website for details of our next coffee morning, and join us
