I have been very aware of the effects Coronavirus has had on everyone and particularly those who are missing church and unable to connect to what we have been doing online. I know some have enjoyed the DVDs and CDs I have made and I am very happy to provide anyone else who would like them with those – do let me know. I am now moving towards a limited re-opening of church for services and so from 12th July there will be an 8am service in Ratby Parish Church and a 6pm service at Groby Parish Church. However, we are keeping our online service at 10am as the main service for the time being as I know those who are shielding still cannot come out and many who are more vulnerable may not yet feel safe enough to come out with the risks from Coronavirus still present. The lockdown of Leicester right on our doorstep certainly reminds us of this.
But I also know that what many who have not been able to join us online will be missing is connecting with one another as we usually do in church. I have become aware of a way we might try doing this and that is by doing ‘Telephone Church’. My intention is that we will do this each week on a Sunday at 11.15am, beginning this Sunday 12th July and if it works carry on as long as we need it. So also enclosed is an order of service which we will use each week and a booklet of hymns, as we’ll try singing – with time delays it might sound a bit cacophonous, but I’m sure God doesn’t mind! Below are the instructions for joining in with ‘Telephone Church’:
Joining instructions
Using your telephone (landline OR mobile) dial:
0333 0164 757

See if you can put your phone on ‘speaker’ or ‘hands free’ so that you can move it away from your ear. This isn’t essential but might make it easier for you.
You will hear a woman’s voice saying “Welcome to Whypay (and a short marketing message)” then, “Please enter your conference room number followed by the hash key”. So using your keypad type in:
10336316 # this is the Room Number
You will then hear the same voice say “Please enter your Guest Pin followed by the hash key”. So using your keypad type in:
1920 # this is the Guest Pin
When you are connected if you are the first on the line some music will play, when someone arrives you will hear a tone, just say hello to each other and when everyone is there we will begin.
And let’s pray for one another that all this will work!
With love and prayers,
Rev’d Ed
