Changes to worship - a letter from the Minister

Dear All

With the First Ministers’ recent announcement on restrictions effective from Friday 20th November, I have had to make some speedy adjustments for the conduct of Sunday morning worship from this coming Sunday, 22nd November, until further notice. I am grateful to my team who have been working behind the scenes to make this possible in so short a time. Thank you! Team.

In order to keep continuity and as little disruption as possible would you please note the following changes. On the positive side, I am happy to announce that we will be live streaming morning services, and to accommodate those who wish to attend church in person I have introduced an extra service.

I have had to alter the times and number of services to make all of this possible. There will now be three half hour services at 9.00am, 9.45am and 10.30am. There will be a fifteen minute gap between each service.

The maximum number allowed in church at any one time is now twenty, including minister. With having three services and live streaming, it is hoped that we will be able to accommodate everyone, give or take a little. With the numbers we have been having in church each week, spread over three services, I think with we should just about manage to keep everyone happy.

Our live streaming will at first, be at the basic level, due to time constraints etc. It will however, adequately enable those who can, and wish, to ‘join in’ on Sunday and view at a later time. Things will, however, get better and more elaborate in time as we become more familiar with the technology.

In order to view the services please follow the instructions below.

  1. Using your device, a laptop, computer or Smart phone go to Youtube.
  2. Use the menu to find and click on ‘live’.
  3. In search bar type in ‘Broom Church’. This should enable you to access the service. The service will be ‘live’ five minutes before it starts proper.

It is planned to run a live test on Friday to make sure everything is ok. I will send out on Friday another reminder with details. In the meantime I wish you all well as we make our way through this unfamiliar episode in our common lives.

As far as is humanly possible I shall endeavour to keep you all as well informed as I can. Wishing you God’s blessing.

Revd James Boag Minister
