We get it – sometimes it’s not easy to make it to Church in-person. Whether that’s because you’re new to faith and turning up in-person is a bit daunting, or it’s just easier for you, more people than ever are looking for Church Online. But being Church Online is about more than just livestreaming our Sunday service, because Church is about people.
We don’t want Church Online to just be a “second choice” for if you can’t make it in-person, but we want to be a real Church in online spaces. We want to be an online family who loves and supports each other as we explore faith together. And we believe that God can work through social media.
How does it work?
Our Online Church campuses include the sort of things you might experience at an in-person Church, so things like: special online-only services, musical worship, prayer, opportunities to share with each other, and so on. Our campuses are run in Facebook Groups which are easy to use and great for getting to know each other as we explore life and faith together. Plus, the Groups are also private, which means anything you share in the Group can only be seen by other members of our online family.
Who can join?
Anybody 18+ is welcome to come and join the online family. Whether you’re new to faith and have a million questions, or you’re an experienced Christian; it’s part of what makes us “Family for Everyone”. We also want to be loving and supportive of each other so please don’t be afraid to ask questions!
How do I join?
We currently have two online campuses, one in Washington (linked to our in-person church), and one covering Herrington, Penshaw, and Shiney Row (which is online-only). But feel free to join whichever one you fancy. If you’re new to faith or still exploring, I’d suggest joining Herrington, Penshaw, and Shiney Row. If you’re thinking of going to Church in-person, but not there yet, I’d give Washington at try!
