Springfield Park Baptist Church


Sunday Service 1st November

Here is our thirty-second online service in the continuing Coronavirus pandemic. This week's service is again a live-streamed event. Alison has also recorded a Bible story for younger children and plans to continue that in the coming weeks. View that any time on this page.

If you are here at 10am you will be able to join in by watching our live stream now that we have resumed with limited services at the church. Just click on the live stream video window below.

The song clips we are using during the live service are also linked on this page. Note that we will mute the live stream audio while we are playing the clips in church so we don't infringe the copyright by streaming them, so just click play on the song clip to watch it with us.

If you didn't see last week's service and would like to catch up, you can see it here. Links to all the services are also on the Listen Again page.

Don't forget, you can also take a look at last week's service again to see what comments have been left and to respond to them where appropriate.

If you would like to contribute an item for next week's service or for another week contact Alison or leave a message in the comments below. We will be continuing with our online/in person services for the foreseeable future, and it would be good to get as many involved as possible.

Live stream

Join us live in church at 10am. We will leave the recorded clip here so you can watch it later if you woke up too late to join us live!

The video clips and images we will be looking at today are shown below. We will be muting the audio from the church while we play the song clips and any other prerecorded music we use today.
