Church of England Diocese of Lichfield Acton Trussell with Bednall

Messy Church goes Zoom!

4 May 2020, 6:30 p.m.

Hi All- Long time no see- hope you and your family are well.

You may know that the Acton & Bednall churches have been holding online services through the Zoom App, while the church buildings themselves are closed temporarily due to Covid-19. These services have really caught on with lots of people joining in so we are going to try a Messy Church goes Zoom to see how it goes- it won't be quite the same as our usual exuberant get togethers at the Community Centre but we can all join in online and sing a few songs ( you will not be heard), see a short video story, hear from Rev Delphine and see a craft activity that you can try at home- no food sorry!

We hope you will join Messy Church goes Zoom- it is on Sunday 10th May at 3.30 pm and will probably last between 30 mins and an hour.

All you have to do is install the Zoom App on your chosen appliance(phone, tablet, laptop or computer) and provided you have internet access it should work. Contrary to some reports in the media, Zoom is totally safe if, as we do, the right safeguards are applied.

You can choose whether or not to be seen or heard ( and your sound will be muted by Roger during songs or if you get too noisy!)

You do need to let Rev Delphine or Roger know in advance if you are going to join Messy Church goes Zoom so that about an hour before the start time you can be emailed details of the meeting ID and the password, needed to gain access.

Roger has kindly agreed to help with any technical problems. The phone number to ring is 01785 714527 and Delphine's email is [email protected]

Hope you can join us on 10th May at 3.30 - please share this information with your friends, family and neighbours( but please don't share the Password info once you receive it)

Sorry this is so long- take care, stay safe, God Bless

Delphine, Roger, Eleanor and the Acton & Bednall Messy Church team
