Online worship - Help needed!

Computer and Bible

The Shropshire and Marches Methodist Circuit began its online worship services at the start of the first lockdown when our chapel buildings were required to close. The Circuit has chosen to retain online worship even though all of our buildings are now open for on-site worship. Online worship is now part of the mixed economy of our churches, for example by providing collective worship for those people for whom on-site worship is inaccessible. If you take a look at the plan you'll see that online worship is put together by a very small number of people (ministers and local preachers). However in order for us to continue to plan online worship we need more people to share the workload.

These are some of the ways that you could help but its not an exhaustive list —

  • Host the Zoom worship using the Circuit account
  • Put together any slides and pictures that are used
  • Contribute to the service e.g. Bible reading, prayers etc either live or pre-recorded
  • Compile and lead the service if you're a local preacher or worship leader

If you'd like to be involved but are worried that you don't have the skills then training can be provided.
