St John's Church Over

Online Church

Updates and information about our online meetings.


Update - 29/07/19

As the summer holidays have started we are running a slightly reduced timetable. We'll still be meeting as a church family on Sunday mornings, both in the church or on Zoom. We've also started a Wednesday Fellowship group which is entirely on Zoom. This is a hybrid meeting of our housegroups and Sunday Evening Pray Meeting. They'll be songs, a short summary of Sunday's talk, a chance to think through a few application questions, and pray.

Have a great summer holiday everyone!

Update - 02/07/2020

We're really excited to be having our first physical meeting in three months this Sunday! We're going to be having a shortened All Age Service in the Church Hall. The hall will be set up in a way to observe social distancing guidelines, will have been thoroughly cleaned, and will have people/stations set up to ensure doors and other areas are cleaned as they are used.

If you'd like to come to the service please get in touch with us through the office number, the website, or Facebook, so we can prepare for your household.

The service will still be available on Zoom for those who either can't or don't feel comfortable being outside yet. You can find it by following the above link.

Update - 02/04/2020

We've published a 'how to guide' for those who are struggling to install Zoom on their phones or tablets, getting onto the meetings from their computers, and for those who are trying to call in from a mobile or landline. 

You can download the PDF by clicking here.

Our friends at St John's, Lindow have also produced a handy guide on how to navigate Zoom when you're in the meetings, you can find it here.

Update - 27/03/2020

For the next few weeks we're going to be meeting as a church family online.

You can join the meetings by following the links below. They'll be the same every week so as long as you click on them just before they start you should find us.

We're using a software called Zoom - you don't need to download it, as it will work with your browser, but downloading the app might speed things up a bit.

Click here to enter the morning and evening services, and George's housegroup on Wednesday.

Update - 24/03/2020

We're going to be running out Tuesday homegroups tonight. They'll be slightly different as we'll be talking to each other over Zoom, but that is the only thing that will have changed!

You can access the meetings by following the links below:

Update - 19/03/2020

In response to the government's and church's advice we are putting the following measures in place to love and serve one another as a church family and the community we live in.

For the foreseeable future we will not be able to meet together as a church on Sunday morning or evening, we are also cancelling homegroups, Tea@2, Quest, and any other regular meetings.

Weddings and funerals will still be going ahead as planned but with additional precautions taken. Please get in touch with the church office if you have any questions.

Whilst the government's guidance for COVID-19 is still active we plan on using all of our creativity, and the technology available to us, to continue encouraging and supporting one another.

We will be holding weekly Zoom meetings so that all our homegroups can continue meeting, albeit virtually. Please contact your home group leaders or the church office for more information.

During this period of we shall also be releasing short daily videos with a bible reading, some thoughts to meditate on, and prayer. These will be available on Facebook, YouTube, and our website. 

As usual we shall be making the Sunday sermon available online, and are exploring the possibility of live-streaming the talk as well.

Finally, we wish to serve all those who may be struggling at this time. If you require any help with getting the shopping in, or need medicines buying, or just want somebody to talk to! Please get in touch with us through the office contact details or facebook. We have a team of people ready to offer their help.

We are praying for our government and world governments, as they respond to this crisis. For all the key workers who are doing an incredible job, as is normal, at the moment. And for our town.

I love you, Lord, my strength.
2 The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;
    my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge,
    my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

Psalm 18:1-2
