Online Services Appeal – Enabling your church to offer online services
Coronavirus has required St Andrew’s to be innovative in the way it reaches out and supports our community. We have recorded Sunday services each week and posted them on our website for people to feel connected with our church and to worship God.
This has been really well received by members of the church community, the parish and yes, across the country (we have received some lovely feedback from people who have watched the services who don’t live in Eastern Green, or even Coventry).
We are planning some exciting services to celebrate Christmas, from our Carol Service to an interactive Crib Service for young families, please look out for them on our webpage.
However, although this has been great, it does have some limitations, especially in these times when numbers allowed in church are so restricted. With your help we want to expand and improve our service to the community. We are launching an appeal to raise £8,000 to install equipment to allow us to live stream our services. This will give us the capability and opportunity to live stream Sunday Services. It will also give us the opportunity, when appropriate and possible, to live stream other important services, for example funerals. We can all understand how difficult it is for families and friends not to be together to celebrate someone’s life. An online service, streamed to a person’s home can help both support the family and those not able to attend.
We are applying to organisations for grants to secure half the cost, but need to meet the other half from donations. If you feel that this is something you can support please make a donation via this link. Thank you……….
