Sunday 17th October
The church is open, Covid restrictions have been lifted and our Sunday worship service will be both in-person and online. This week John is taking our service with the theme ‘Fruits of the Spirit - Goodness’. Please have your bible ready to read along with us as our readings may not be on the screen. Alison's recorded Bible story time for younger children is continuing this week with the story of the unforgiving servant. See it below the service in Children’s Corner.
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.
Our YouTube playlist for this week, including the stream, can be found by clicking this text. 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, or go to www.youtube.com/c/spbclive.
Join us live online at 10am. The recorded service will be available to watch later if you could not join us live.
There may be some copyright video clips that we may not be able to play in full sound and vision on the stream. There are links in the playlist so you may watch all the videos later if you wish.
