Here is the fourteenth of the Church Wardens’ messages to the Parish:
To start, a quick reminder that you can keep up with all the church news on our website:
Notices are also published on our Facebook and Twitter links. Similarly, the weekly news email that Melvyn sends out are full of gems such as our weekly Epistle. If you know of anyone who might be interested in receiving this weekly email, can you let us know and we will add them to the mailing list. They do not have to be members of our church to receive the emails.
As many will know, our streamed services are presently transmitted on Facebook, at 10.00am on Sundays and 9.30 on Wednesdays. The PCC, and the Standing Committee, use ZOOM for meetings and on Wednesday of this week we held our first open ZOOM Coffee Meeting that a number of us joined. It was a real pleasure to share news and to see each other albeit on screen.
Many of you are familiar with the workings of ZOOM but, just in case, for others who have access to a computer web browser, and would like to try it to see if it works for them, here is a simple guide (PDF) to using ZOOM (the link to a meeting in these instructions won’t work: it’s just to show you what one looks like): How To Use Zoom2.pdf
So next Wednesday (27th January) why not try it out from 10.15am until 11.00am. If you would like to try accessing ZOOM before next Wednesday, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can arrange a time to talk you through the process via a telephone call.
Here is next week’s ZOOM link (which will work):
The Wardens’ Zoom Meeting – Time: Wednesday 27th January 2021 10.15am until 11.00am. To join this Zoom meeting here is what you need:
Meeting ID: 308 355 9074
Some of us also connected with members of other local churches at the lunchtime prayer and meditation meetings organised by Rev Will Fletcher from Haywards Heath Methodist Church during this Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. Hopefully, these events are something that we can build upon in the future.
Finally, Melvyn is still on the go. Find out here where he has got to and why here: https://www.loveyfoundation.org/what-we-do
Keep safe and do not forget distancing, masks and hand-washing. More next week when we will catch up with you all again as many of us await our “jabs”.
