What are we doing in this time of the Coronavirus Pandemic?
Like every person, family, business, school and organisation, we are having to respond and adapt to what is going on around us. This page is a place to share what that’s looking like for us and to give you tools that can help you to do the same.
This page shares a few different things. It shares what we're doing on Sundays now, some info and articles about our plans, and some things you can be doing right now.
On Sundays, there are lots of different ways to be part of our church community, and they fall into two different categories: online and face-to-face. The link in each option takes you to a page where you can sign up to let us know this is what you are planning to do.
There are a few different things we have going on online that we would love for you to join in with.
Kids Church, 9am on YouTube
A service led by our children, always a powerful and inspiring time! It can be found at goldhill.org/kidschurch
Watch our Online Service
Each week, a full service recorded. You can join in at home, or we really encourage you to join with another household if you can to join in together. The service is at goldhill.org/sunday
Not technically ‘online’, but it’s not face-to-face. You can dial in to our phone congregation at 10am. Details are at goldhill.org/info
We have started up some physical gatherings in our building again, and here are some details:
Tuesdays (for the vulnerable
If you are in one of the government’s specified ‘vulnerable’ categories, you are welcome to attend a gathering on a Tuesday morning at 10:30. Extra measures will be in place at this.
Breathe – Youth Congregation
Our congregation for (and largely led by) young people is meeting in the church building on Saturday evenings at 7pm.
PLEASE SIGN UP!
Please note that in order to enable us to do our part with the ‘track and trace’ initiative, and in order to help us build real community and understand who is engaging in what different ways, we are asking everybody to sign up to let us know how they are are joining in with our ministry. This includes both the online and face-to-face options. You can follow links above to sign up for each option, or click the button below to find out more about why we’re doing what we’re doing and then sign up from there.
We have been planning and preparing for what our next stages look like as a church family. Here are some key articles we’ve put together to explain that. You can see all our articles, blogs and our weekly info pages here.
We have made lots of things that you might find helpful in recent months. Our YouTube channel is packed full of things, including lots of weekly content for children, all of our talks and a number of other one-off things too. We have also put something together to help everyone get into the Bible for themselves, no matter what age you are.
