Three Best Parts of Online Church

Church on Sunday is favorite part of our weekend bringing a sense of connection, fellowship, and belonging! Online church is different from the services that we are accustomed to on a Sunday; but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t awesome. When else can you show up to church in your pj’s?
There’s so much to love about online church; and here are the three best parts!

1 – Coffee and snacks during Church!
There is nothing better than snuggling up on the couch, a warm cup of coffee in your hands and watching Church! Snacks are an essential for Church in my household.  There’s nearly always some home baking, or fresh croissants from our local general store to enjoy.

2 – Relaxed Sunday mornings
Because we don’t travel during lockdown, and don’t have to spend time getting ready – a bit of extra time is freed up in the morning. Using this time to spend with family, reading your bible, and going on a walk is the perfect way to spend a relaxed Sunday morning before church.

3 – Connecting in a whole new way
Having church online opens the doors to a whole new way of connecting. In the comments section of the feed, you can see people from all over the world joining in! When else would we have that opportunity as a church?  It is so epic that we get to reach people far beyond the borders of Aotearoa!

I can’t wait for us all to be back together – there is nothing like being in the same room! But until we that day comes, let’s all keep gathering virtually on a Sunday morning, and worship our God together from our homes. Like it says in Hebrews 10:25 ‘And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.’
