Church During Covid
There are many ways to get involved and stay connected at Welton. These are just some of the opportunities available at the present time. Do get in touch if you'd like to know more. We'd love to hear from you.
The Welton@home email is still up and running and fulfilling requests with help for shopping, collecting prescriptions etc... Click here to go to the form.
We are also looking at ways to support those who might be feeling isolated by encouraging the idea of ‘prayer & chat walks’ in pairs around our community. We feel this could be a fruitful time God uses us within our community in an OUT focused way of spending time with another person. If this is something you would like to do, please get in touch and we’ll aim to connect people together in pairs.
During Lockdown, all services can be found online. Please join us on https://www.weltonchurch.org.uk/live or on Youtube (search Welton Baptist Church) on Sunday's at 10.15am.
Welton Communities will restart on April 4th and meet every first and third Sunday of the month at 4 different locations at 10.30am, the first and third Sunday of each month. There is 1 in Timsbury, 2 in Farrington Gurney and 1 in Paulton. To find out more about how to attend please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once done, you will be contacted by the appropriate community who will send you a link where you register your attendance (which is all free of charge) and that way the organisers will assign you a table (of no more than 6) and will welcome you, very warmly, on your arrival. Please know, these meetings are extremely safe and go beyond the guidelines for safety given by the Government and masks must be worn. Everyone is welcome and there is opportunity for children aged 4 – 11 to take part in the previous weeks nFest@home with craft and lots of fun (see below). For more information about communities, please click here.
GO LIVE SUNDAYS
Every Sunday we have our Church service online. These are broadcast on Church Online (https://www.weltonchurch.org.uk/live) at 10.15am and can also be found on YouTube by clicking here. Once there, you can subscribe and also see every service since March which include adult and children services (nFest@home).
This is a great place for anyone aged 17-25 to get connected whether you're new to Welton or been around a while. During Covid we're meeting on zoom every other Saturday evening at 8pm for one hour. It’s a time to chat, play games and catch up with each other. We know that joining something new can be a bit overwhelming, especially on Zoom, but go for it, we'd really love to see you and you'll soon feel at home. Please contact Becca Yates at email@example.com
We believe that our house-groups are an essential part of church life, and even more so during these times. Growing deeper friendships and trust often happens within house-groups as well as discipleship. We have lots of different house-groups, some mixed groups, some for women, some for men, some during the day and others in the evenings. Some meet every week and some meet 'as and when', so we hope that you can find one that suits your needs. All groups are currently meeting on 'Zoom' in line with current guidelines. If you are interested in joining a group or would like more information please contact Clare at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just a reminder of all the amazing children and youth groups that are currently available online during the week:

Voltage - Year 7 to age 14 - meet every Wednesday at 7pm
Ignite - Ages 14 - 18 - meet every Friday at 7.30pm

This is for children aged 4 - 11 and is broadcast on our YouTube channel (click here) at 9.30am every Sunday. Children enjoy learning about the Bible, playing games and spending some fun time together.
When Communities are on (which is the first and third Sunday of each month), children aged 4 - 11 will get to enjoy half an hour of fun with learning about the Bible, games, crafts and lots of other things. The children will need to be signed in by a parent in the same way we sign in for our Sunday Communities (see above).
GROUPS FOR CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE
This is for children in school years 5 and 6. Superchargers meet every 2 weeks on zoom and have lots of fun on these calls. Please email email@example.com if your child would like to be a part of this. For those children that would like to take part in Superchargers but are not so comfortable on zoom, please still contact us. Care notes are delivered each term to let the child know they are thought of and to help them feel connected. To stay within child guidelines we ask that all parents complete a consent form which can be found here.
This group is for children in school year 7 to age 14. Voltage meet every Wednesday by zoom. The theme is games, fun and laughter and lasts about an hour. It’s been great for children to meet like this and have fun together.

For ages 14 – 18, Ignite meet on zoom every Friday at 7.30pm. This is a place for lots of interactive fun and connecting biblical truths so creates good discussion and also provides a chance for them to encourage and laugh with each other.
