This is without a doubt a strange and stressful time for our communities and churches. However, within it we see a real challenge to take church ‘beyond the building’. To support you and your community at this time, we’ve got a range of activities, groups and resources for you.
For all of these activities, you can find out more about how to get involved by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
Sunday worship services and Zoom fellowship:
Each Sunday morning we produce an online service (available on YouTube at 10.15am) incorporating music, messages and prayers, followed by a time of sharing and fellowship via Zoom at 11am.
Links to the services are uploaded on this website or our Facebook page. Links to the Zoom fellowship can be obtained by emailing email@example.com
We will be returning to face-to-face worship when it is permitted and safe to do so.
Weekly inspiration and updates
During the week we provide a range of messages, reflections and inspiration from our Pastor (and others!). This is available on our website or our Facebook page.
Box Hill Central Community Choir
The Community Choir, which was previously meeting in the church building, continues to meet on Tuesday mornings via Zoom for an entertaining and engaging time of singing and friendship. They are always keen for new members and this is a great opportunity to join the choir and scrub up on your singing skills before we meet again in person!
Box Hill Community Boatbuilding
When we are able to return from isolation, we have a new project where you can learn some new skills and make some new friends as together we build a traditional wooden boat together.
Until that time, the Boatbuilding group meets and plans for the project over Zoom, and warmly welcomes new members who might be keen to get their hands dirty in the coming months.
Prayer and study groups
Box Hill Baptist operates a range of groups which are gathering via Zoom to study the Bible, share news and encouragement, and pray for each other. If you’re keen to get involved just drop us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll find you the group that’s best for you.
Once a month we also run a quiet, contemplative service for those who value some time to quieten our minds and selves and find some peace in the midst of this hectic time. Times vary, so keep an eye on our website or Facebook page for more information.
And of course we always want to know how we can help you? Feel free to email us and let us know if there’s anything that the church might be able to do to support you, your family, or your community. If we can’t, we can certainly reach out to our broader church and community networks to find someone who can!
