Welcome to Level 1

We’re thrilled to be here.  Our national game of Whack-a-mole continues with Covid, so there will continue to be a possibility of tripping back up the levels. Have you got a few masks (Don’t for get you can get them from our church – part of our fundraising for our re-build)? In the meantime, lets keep washing our hands and logging in the covid app, in case the virus appears in Christchurch.  It’s not about fear, but care for others. We know this virus is pretty hard on the elderly and the poor.  So even if you think you are invunerable, good practise makes it less likely that you will pass it on to others. We’re back to being able…

We’re still meeting on Sundays in Level 2

You’d be welcome to join us on Sundays at the Queenspark Primary School hall at 10:30. Level two means we’ve stripped back some of our extras, so sadly no tea or coffee, no chocolates and we encourage people to physically distance.   Here’s a short Vid explaining that We’re still seeking to load up livestreams of services/messages, but are having some technology issues.  

Reopening – This Sunday

Good news. This coming sunday (7th) Parklands Baptist Community Church will be able to meet in the Queenspark school hall. We’ll be following guidelines, with physical distancing, no passing of material from person to person, sign-in contact tracing and liberal amounts of disinfectant being applied (but not to people) after our service. While I’m sad to say we won’t be serving tea and coffee, there is nothing to stop people heading out for a cuppa with others. We’re looking forward to meeting together. For those who can’t (or feel nervous) we’ll attempt to live stream our gathering – but please be forgiving as there are more than a few technical hurdles to leap.  

Midweek update and coloring in page

Hey Parklands peeps,    Won’t be meeting this Sunday physically. There’s a few details to be worked through. We’re planning to get our ducks lined up for the 7th, more details to come. Here’s Colin saying that. And here’s a colouring page for Pentecost  

Sunday 24th May Streamed service

This week we’re breaking with our (recent tradition). We’re going to try not pre-recording the Lead prayer at the start, and the family time. We’ll live stream them from our Zoom and upload them later. So If you’re checking this out before they are up  you’ll only see a message and some songs. However the message has been pre-recorded. This week we were reading from Exodus 25:1-9 and Exodus 31:1-11 (Hold your mouse over them to read them.  I thought I’d ask our building team to reflect on reading them; Some Songs for singing together Life Group/Bubble Study Notes Read – Exodus 25:1–9 and 31:1–11 (Click on this link for a 1 page PDF copy) Humans love building stuff.  Did…
