HOLY TRINITY BRAMLEY
YOU CAN STILL ATTEND OUR SERVICES VIA ZOOM!
Due to the Coronavirus outbreak all services at Holy Trinity Bramley are cancelled, and the church building is closed, in compliance with Government restrictions.
Holy Trinity Bramley Churchyard will be open from 10.00am until 5.00pm each day for anyone wanting to visit the Garden of Remembrance. This is a delightful quiet space to remember and think of those we love who are suffering or who have sadly died. *Please remember that Social Distancing must be observed at all times to avoid the gates having to be locked again.*
Holy Trinity Bramley – on the air and
Zoom-ing through lockdown.
Most clergy will tell you that if they had a penny for every time someone said : “you don’t have to go to church to be a Christian …” we would all be very rich. So, what happens when you suddenly find that you are not allowed to go to church and the vicar is not allowed to visit you?
Well, over the past few weeks, we in Holy Trinity, like many other churches, have had to learn new ways of worshipping together. It started with a tentative weekday ZOOM meeting (an internet video conferencing tool) with just a few of the church council. Then some evening prayers were tried and eventually after much word of mouth (or at least word of e-mail) the appropriate links and addresses were shared for folk to join Sunday services.
So many of our congregation have found their inner 'tecchie' and folks have been tutored over the phone so that when they pop up either in sound and vision or just sound there is much joy from the virtual congregation. The only trouble with this is that we have to be careful about how we publish the link and passwords because we do not want any electronic interference putting us off as we try to worship together. This means that we have been sending out direct e-mail links to those who want to join the service securely.
If you or someone you know would like to join in the virtual services please e-mail the parish office at email@example.com. and we can include you on the e-mail link for future services.
