No live welcome but with two Zooms and a full YouTube playlist Sunday 20th December really is a church at home day

17 December 2020

To say Sunday December 20th is going to be busy is something of an under statement. The day begins at 9.30am with an online Nativity Service, this is followed with our regular Church at Home playlist and then from 5.30pm onwards we have an exciting hybrid blend of Zoom chat and Youtube carols. In more detail the day plays out as follows:9.30am Shelley and Nathan host a Zoom Nativity Service, invitations and links to which have already been dispatched. However, if you thought you would be able to get away with sitting there in your dressing gown with your video off and gently easing yourself into the day you’d be wrong because young or old (and for that matter everyone in between) is invited to dress up and come as their favourite nativity character! 

After that, at 10.45am there will be no live welcome but instead our Facebook page, and a post here on the MBC website will direct you to a link via which you can share in our Church at Home Service. Again, though, this will be slightly different in that our speaker this week is Sam Corley from Leeds Minster, or to give him his full title: The Reverend Canon Sam Corley, The Rector of Leeds. The Service will also include Communion, carols, prayer and of course the lighting of the fourth Advent candle.

Then after a free afternoon it will be time to go back to MBC for 5.30pm when through the wonders of modern technology this year’s virtual Carol Service will be brought to you by an easy to follow mix of live Zoom chat and on Youtube a traditional programme of readings and carols. 

If all this sounds a bit daunting don’t worry because by Sunday morning there will be new posts both here on the website and on our Facebook page giving you all the info you need to join in with all these different events.
