Regular Events During Covid Restricted Times

Despite lockdowns and restrictions, many of our activities have continued online using the Zoom platform which is free to join and easy to use.  We hope that there will be something that you would like to take part in. 

For more information on how to join in with any of the regular events below, please email the Church Office at:

Sunday:

Livestream Worship on YouTube

Worship is more than singing hymns or songs.  Serving and encouraging others in the many ways open to us at this time - such as telephone calls, emails and texts - this is worship too.  In fact, the whole of life can be described as worship.  God is interested in our time at work, at home and at school as well as our time worshiping Him in our Sunday services.  We seek to encourage and build up every individual in our fellowship so that each may fully worship God in all areas of our lives.

Our weekly worship service is at 10.30am on YouTube Livestream.

Chat and Pray on Zoom.

Following our Livestream worship, there is the opportunity to join us on Zoom. This virtual platform enables us to see each other for a chat or a prayer – approximately 11:40am after the morning service.

For more information on how to join on Zoom see the Livestream Worship YouTube description or email the Church Office at: office@sloughbaptistchurch.org.uk

Virtual Sunday School

Although we aren’t able to run our usual children’s Sunday Club, there are still fun activities for children to take part in online on a Sunday morning and we thoroughly recommend the Virtual Sunday School.

We meet together on Zoom to build friendships and learn about what it means to follow Jesus today.  This group is for people aged 14-18 years-old.  Whether you are new to the whole "Christianity" thing or been in church for a long time, all are welcome!

A typical evening starts with chatting and games, we then spend some time looking at the Bible on different topics relevant to youth today.  So come and join us term-time Sunday evenings 6:30-8:00pm.

Currently Y@S meets on Zoom some weeks, and in person at the church when we can.

And Finally:

Kintsugi Hope Wellbeing Groups

We are also running, on a rolling basis, Kintsugi Hope Wellbeing Groups.

Many of us have been struggling with all the changes in our lives these past months and are faced with more uncertainty of what the coming months will bring.

As we struggle through various aspects of our lives many of us have at times felt broken. 'Kintsugi' is a Japanese technique for repairing pottery with seams of gold. The word means 'golden joinery' in Japanese. This repairs the brokenness in a way that makes the object more beautiful, and even more unique than it was prior to being broken. Instead of hiding the scars it makes a feature of them.

Over 12 weeks, Kintsugi Hope Groups explore various topics and how to maintain positive mental and emotional wellbeing in the midst of our busy lives and in this changing world. Each group will have a facilitator, a helper and there are various materials used to help us explore each subject. It is not a therapy group but a group where we can support and encourage each other - we are all in this together and no one has all the answers.
