So, we’re on week 7 of Virtual Church … I wonder how many more weeks we have to go?!? All the links are in the usual place on this website: https://www.thebarn.org.uk/theword/virtual-sunday-mornings/.
This week, we're again hosting a Pre-Service Chat Room. Feel free to join in: it starts at 9.45 and will finish ready for a virtual 10 am service start. The link for that is https://youtu.be/2fcoSloPrsg. Just to confirm that if you follow this link, you will be able to watch along on YouTube, and can join in the conversation by entering your greetings in the comments bar which runs alongside.
For the main service, you can watch it in any order you like, or, if you click on the Full Adult Service Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLtTW4nR9wf4D8pPTz_dN4JcFxx3SJ9TYH that will take you automatically through welcome, praise and worship, and then Jamie's message. For the YouTube praise and worship playlist, this week there are 3 songs. You can turn the captions on in YouTube and the lyrics will be visible at the bottom. If you can't get that working, there is a printable lyric sheet available online. Please note that, with apologies, adverts may appear in the worship playlist ... you can usually skip those after a few seconds.
As usual, Youth, Kids and Pre-School have their own videos, and there are activity sheets available, too. The recommendation is that those in Years 5 and 6 would be better off watching the Youth video.
This evening, Anne Le Tissier will be hosting Virtual IF via the Zoom platform. You will need to pre-register for that, by following this link: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZYucO-grzkpGdE5-W3jOZb6lMUOnJwpKlkJ. Then, you will be sent the direct link and password for the meeting, which will start at 6.30. You will enter the main meeting through a 'waiting room.' Once we've assembled, Jamie will explain the practicalities and then Anne will lead us through the various prayer topics as she would usually. Zoom allows us to split into smaller groups to pray … so it should work really well. If you have any problems registering or joining the meeting, just email .
Just before IF, Barry Griffiths has kindly offered to host some Live Stream Worship. That will be running from 6pm till about 6.25 and is available at this link: https://www.facebook.com/TheBarnBidford/live/. It will be going out on Facebook Live on theBarn Bidford page. Don't worry if you're not a Facebook user; you can still watch by following that link. Barry and Phil Jones are hoping to run some regular live stream worship slots from next weekend. More to follow in due course.
Hope you find our service this week enriching and encouraging!
