Visiting on Sunday?
Welcome! You're invited to our Sunday gathering, 'weekly worship online'.
If you are thinking of tuning in one Sunday then we hope that this information will help you to know what to expect. We hope that you enjoy coming along, meet with God and find somewhere you can call home.
Where do you meet?
Ordinarily we meet in Headingley Methodist Church, but during the pandemic we are meeting online, on Sundays at 11am for around 50 minutes. You can tune into the live stream on YouTube or Facebook.
In the few minutes before 11am there is a countdown, some news and maybe a video of someone in the church saying hello.
The host for the morning will welcome everyone, explain what’s happening today and then hand over to the worship leader who will lead us in around 15 minutes of contemporary worship. The words will appear at the bottom of the screen and you’re invited to join in from your home.
After this the host will be back to share community news, stories and maybe to lead us in prayer or a scripture reading. Then they will introduce our speaker for the day.
The speaker will give a talk of about 15 minutes based around both the bible and our experience of following Jesus that is practical and relevant to everyday life.
That will lead into a time of prayer ministry where we will give opportunity for a prayerful response to the message and also pray for matters which lie on our hearts. Often the Holy Spirit will guide us to pray for specific people or situations and it can be a powerfully impactful time. You can join in from where you are in whatever way is effective for you.
At the end of this time the host will draw things to a close and you will be invited to respond by skipping over to one of several optional Zoom Rooms to receive prayer or encouragement or maybe to a Newcomers' Zoom if you're new and would like to meet the Senior Pastors and other newcomers. The link to the Zoom rooms will appear at the end of the live stream.
