Springfield Park Baptist Church


Sunday Service 21st February

Here we are into the fortyseventh week of our online services in the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.  As we are in national lockdown and there have been increasing numbers of new cases of the virus the church is closed and the service will again be online only.  This week John and Alison are leading and the service is going to be live streamed at 10am.  This week's theme is Matthew 3:13 to 4:11, Jesus' Baptism and Temptations.  Alison's Bible story time for younger children continues with the story of Moses and the Ten Commandments.  See it below the service in Childrens Corner.

If you didn't see our last Sunday 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 services, as well as in church when we can, for the foreseeable future, and it would be good to get as many of you involved as possible.

If you have a smart TV or other player that can play YouTube playlists, you can watch the service by clicking here.  The link will open YouTube in a new tab.  You can also find our channel by searching for Springfield Park Baptist Church on YouTube and see the playlist there.

Live stream

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