The church has gone online in a BIG way. Every Sunday there is a national online service and a diocesan online service and we have our own service from St Lawrence’s Hungerford. What’s more the numbers are staggering:
- 800,000 people are reading the bible in one year with Nicky and Pippa Gumbel
- 300,000 people have done the Alpha course in the last 6 months
- 1,600 people are currently on the Alpha course at Holy Trinity Brompton
- and when they go into discussion groups they have 160 break out groups!
Here in Hungerford we have been online every Sunday since 22 March and it has been amazingly popular:
- 333 people watched the wreath laying at Hungerford war memorial
- 280 people watched our best attended service on youtube more than we can fit in the building!
So at Christmas whatever Boris decides “You are just one click from Jesus”.
We hope we will be back in church, but whether we are in church or at home we will be on our YouTube Channel. If you can join us face to face that would be brilliant.
