August services


 

We are planning to stream a diocesan service on all five Sunday mornings in August.

These non-eucharistic services will reflect the various traditions and contexts across the diocese.

Churches that want to engage with one or more of these services can do so in three different ways:

  • By simply pointing people to the diocesan service
  • By point people to the diocesan service and then hosting your own Zoom coffee afterwards
  • By incorporate the diocesan sermon into your own service

If you want to act missionally, consider getting permission from local community Facebook groups to stream our services. That is how one church with a usual Sunday attendance of 50 adults has managed to attract 1500 devices viewing their worship every week!
