Due to Coronavirus restrictions we are not able to meet physically. However things are happening by other means!
Circuit reading services are prepared and sent out every week via email with St John's notices and from the circuit administrator. A link to this week's service is here: Service for May 31st (Pentecost). If you would like to receive these by post contact John Nunn.
On Sunday June 7th at 10:30am Rev. Joan Warner will lead a service over zoom. You can join this service from a PC, tablet or smartphone with sound and video or from a mobile phone or landline with sound only. Contact details for the service will be sent out with St John's notices next week. If you have any queries or difficulties please contact Peter Thorpe by email at email@example.com or phone on 01492 580112.
The service will run in the same way as the circuit Wesley day service, with those not participating in leading the service muted. After the service, for the Virtual Church Lunch, everyone will be unmuted and placed initially in randomly allocated breakout rooms, where about 5 participants can chat. In an improvement on the Wesley day service you will be able to see who is in which room and you will be able to move between rooms to talk to people of your choice.
It is hoped that further Zoom services can be run at St John's.
The group continues to meet every Wednesday evening at 7pm via Zoom. All are welcome. If you want to attend a meeting contact Jean Ware on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01492 580112. The meeting on 3rd June will be led by John and Della on issues raised by their recent visit to Israel/Palestine. John has produced some introductory notes here.
To help people keep in touch there is a WhatsApp group. The group is called "St John's Bangor" and if you would like to join you need to email or text the word "Yes" along with your mobile number to either John Hay or John Nunn. You do need a mobile phone but provided you have one which is connected you can work on your laptop or tablet. This St John's group will only consist of people who attend St John's.
