Online Church Family
Find out more about Church Online
We want to be an online church family who supports and explores life and faith together. Church Online is a great way of getting to know each other and growing as disciples right throughout the week on social media!
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.
Our Online Church campuses include the sort of things you might experience at an in-person Church, so things like: a special weekly online-only Church Service, 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.
The focus of our online church community is our weekly service on Wednesday evenings at 8pm. The service is livestreamed on Facebook publicly and to those within our Facebook Group and is around 25mins long. Our online service includes a short reading from the Bible, three short (2-3min) talks exploring the evening's theme, chance to share thoughts and opinions together on what we're exploring, and a time of prayer. You're welcome to contribute as much or as little as you like to discussions within the comments section, and we'd love for you to give it a try because it helps us to get to know each other and actually, we believe that we can all learn from each other too!
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! The reason we are currently not allowing under 18s to join the Group is to safeguard them as we cannot fully verify all Facebook accounts are who they claim to be.
