Numbers at services so far have ranged from 137 to 317 with views after reaching 1059; our congregation is growing and is based around the UK, in Portugal, Africa, USA and Australia. There are still technical things to think about and we will continue to work on these. Please do tell (email) your minister or Martin Smith if you have helpful observations

  • YouTube clips of hymns may be suggested. It can be difficult to switch to these whilst watching the service. We suggest loading them in separate tabs BEFORE the service so you can switch windows easily or load the service sheet in a separate tab and link from there. You may wish to cue them up before the service so you can skip adverts.
  • Some people found it useful to ask Alexa (other digital assistants are available) to play the hymn or to play the hymns on a second device.
  • Service sheets will be available on the right of this page >>>>
  • We will try to publicise the live-stream by Facebook or other means but this page will always be the most up to date source, sometimes last minute changes may need to be made.
  • If you don't have access to the Internet or there are technical glitches , simply use the service sheet at home, knowing you are sharing with friends across the circuit.
  • Some people find the "chat" disruptive during the service, it may be possible to turn the chat box off.
  • If you are a Pastoral Visitor, please ensure that those in your care have access to the information in this note and the service sheet (either by sending them an email or posting a copy through their door).
  • It is suggested that we may feel more part of the worshipping body of Christians if we light a candle during the prayers of intercession, knowing that our friends around the Circuit are doing likewise
