To comply with the new lockdown we have reverted our Sunday morning service to being solely on Zoom. The technology did its thing (just like Paul's letters used to do with a far earlier form of communication) and we met, shared, prayed, worshipped and learned together. As usual, a number of people took part, reading, leading prayers, worship, teaching, and (of course) notices. Here is a screenshot, plus a couple of pictures from our service packs.
We're back again next Sunday at 10:45am. All are welcome. Please send an email for log-in details.
Coming soon – Saturday November 14 from 7:30pm on Zoom – the Tear Fund Big Quiz 2020. We will be joining with hundreds of churches and thousands of people for ONE BIG QUIZ.
It's free, it's for a good cause, it's going to be a lot of fun. To join in, send an email. We'll send you all the details you'll need. Meantime, dig out that thinking cap. Check supplies of tea and cake. Oh, and we've been not very reliably informed that chocolate is good for brain power.
One more from Sunday morning's service where we looked at different pictures of the church and used our creativity. Tool late for yesterday's post, but the comment from Sueli deserves a post of its own:
"For me this pattern represents our diversity at church but also the way we are connected and intertwined by our faith."
Amen to that.
In our All Together service on Sunday we looked at different images or pictures of the Church. As has been the way this last few weeks (but changing again from next Sunday - more here) some of us were in the building and some were joining in via Zoom. We had a quiz identifying different images of the church from the Bible from pictures on the screen (such as vine, sheep, temple). Then all were encouraged to come up with their own images using modelling clay, crayons and paper. Here are some of them – quiz part two. How many can you work out?
Here's a 6 minute whizz through Brunswick's 2020 so far, as put together for our AGM the other night. As it says at the start: A year we won't forget in a hurry, but lots to be thankful for!
Brunswick's Covid-delayed AGMWAD (Annual General Meeting With A Difference) is tonight at 7:30pm via Zoom. As well as the usual business such as choosing a new Church Council and other officers and reviewing our finances we will also be celebrating what God has been doing with us and through us in our community during this difficult time. We have a STACK of stories, pictures, videos and updates to share. As well as cake (of course). More info here. If you would like to join us, please send an email.
Hi Everybody! We are so excited to share our lockdown exhibition with you, Windrush Generations: Manchester Voices, for #BlackHistoryMonth.
Every other working day in October we will be sharing stories contributed by the wonderful and generous participants of this project. This exhibition focuses on the personal histories and experiences of 1st and 2nd generation African Caribbeans in Greater Manchester. The stories explore journey's of migration, struggles and achievements, art and activism, and Caribbean culture in Manchester.
Launch day is October 1st – please find us, like and share on Facebook, Twitter or on our website to join us in experiencing the stories. It is going to be so interesting!
You can also see this exhibition at the Central Library on October 5th. Further info here.
NHS Test and Trace is now up and running with QR Codes for the app on every entrance door in the church building. To find out more about how it all works to help keep us all safe and how to get your free app, go here.
From Thursday 24th September you will see NHS Test and Trace QR codes at all of the entrances to our building. This is to aid the NHS in being able to quickly identify those who may have had direct contact with someone else who has tested positive for coronavirus and to identify potential outbreaks as quickly as possible.
To be able to use these QR codes you will need to have a smart phone and will need to have downloaded the official NHS Covid-19 Test and Trace app from your App Store. Simply open the app and scan the code to record your attendance in the building. If you are not able to download the app, don't worry, we can still take your details on paper (please ask if you need to do this).
Please be assured of our love and our prayers during this challenging time.
