We’re trying out some new things with Connect @ Canley including a Quiz this Sunday – 17 January at 3pm. Contact us for a link to the Zoom call – adults and children are welcome to join in the quiz.
You are welcome to join us online for our Christmas services this year. There are now no spaces left for “Carols by Candlelight” but you can still sign up to be on the reserve list. Christmas Day and Sunday 27th December are both online only – check back here or on the Christmas page for links to the video streams.
Join us each Sunday up to Christmas by booking online, joining a live stream or catching up later in the week! We will have special services on Sunday 20th – our family carol service – and Christmas Eve with our Carols by Candlelight.
If you want to invite family and friends there are a few ways to do it. There are invitation cards that you can collect from the church building if you come to a service or contact Doug if you’d like some dropped off. You can also like the invitation on Facebook and share it with everyone – it has details of how to join at home from anywhere in the world!
With the move from Lockdown to Tier 3 restrictions we will be able to worship together in the building from Sunday 6 December. We will be following Covid guidelines including pre-booking and the use of sanitizer, masks and ventilation – bring a warm coat as windows will be opened. As before in the autumn, the sermon may be pre recorded rather than live and the service will be live streamed so that those not in attendance can watch at home. We will also produce a DVD for those who need one but this will not be available until after the service. We look forward to being able to worship together in the church building.
It is with sadness that we confirm that, in line with Government restrictions, the church building will be closed for all activities from 5th November to December 2nd. This includes the café as well as our services. It is planned that we will continue to live stream the Family Service from the building at its usual time of 11am on Sunday mornings. Only those taking part in the service will be able to attend the building. For those who have no internet access we will continue to produce DVD copies of the service.
During this difficult time we continue to support members and friends of the church with phone calls, doorstep visits and practical support where needed. Thank you to all of those who are helping with this.
It has been a great joy to be back in the building for the month of October and, God willing, we look forward to being back in the building in December, but whatever happens we plan to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, Christmas is not cancelled!
The Leadership Team
5th November 2020
We want everyone to feel welcomed into our church and that’s not so easy if you can’t come into the building right now. To connect with us and get to know us better, get in touch on the contact page for an invitation to the video chat at 3pm each Sunday with Danny and Katia. Sit down with a cup of tea (other drinks are also acceptable!) and get to know us a bit better.
We are planning that our service on October 4th will be a Harvest Thanksgiving service and we will be collecting food for the local Food Hub. There will be a collection point in the Café on Thursday 1st and Friday 2nd October and also in the service on Sunday 4th October. We will not be making a display of the food but would be happy to pass donations on. Items needed are: Tinned vegetables, soups, meat, fish, fruit; Pasta, rice, biscuits, cereal, tea, coffee, sugar, jam, peanut butter, chocolate bars.
You can book to attend the service or watch online – we’ll add a link to the website closer to the time.
