South

Community Groups

The main way we're staying connected relationally and looking out for one another at this time is through our Community Groups. We meet together via Zoom which is pretty easy to use. You just need to click on the link that your group leader will send you and follow the instructions that you will be given.

If you're not involved in a group and would like to be, please do  contact office@churchcentral.org.uk .

South Podcast

This time could be an unrivaled opportunity for growth, but where do we start? Every other week, we're releasing a burst of short podcast episodes to help us think about what God might be looking to do in us during this time. Many of the episodes feature brand new music from people within Churchcentral South.

South catch up on Zoom

10.45-11.15am
Each week we gather on Zoom, to see one another's faces, for a short kids section and to share news. We then break off into breakout rooms of four or so, to catch up, or pray together. People are free to engage as much or as little as they wish.

Weekly prayer meeting on Zoom (with sung worship)

7.30-8.30pm
We want to depend on God in this time and so have launched a weekly chance to pray together via Zoom.
We also sing together during this time.
You are free to participate in whatever way works best for you, even if that's listening and praying silently from home.

FIVE RESOURCES FOR ALL OF US

1. Daily Bible Reading:

We all need to listen to God’s voice. Maybe now, more than ever. To help you to do this during the present crisis, there are short live Bible reading sessions each weekday morning on Zoom, looking at the book of John and some Psalms. They are at 8am Monday to Friday. To join, simply log on each morning with this link. 

2. Worship playlists

One of the most precious things in our churches - and one of the hardest things to replicate via technology - is the joy of worshipping together. To help in singing to God and meeting with Him at this time, a few people across the churches have put together a few playlists of songs. 

3. Book recommendations to go deep

Podcasts and videos are helpful (and much shorter), but books can allow you to go deeper on important subjects and think well about them. To help you get started, Jonathan has put together this list (with the help of former Churchcentralite Luke Davydaitis), with a few suggestions for each topic.

4. Sermon activity sheet for children

Most Fridays there will now be a printable activity sheet made available on this website, and on social media, to go alongside the upcoming Sunday sermon. Print these and use what works for your children.

5. General kids resources page

To help you make the most of the opportunity to bring Jesus to your children in this time, there's a growing page of printable resources. We'll add to this throughout the lockdown for you to use what you want, when you want.
