While the church buildings are closed, we are still holding online services each Sunday at 10am. Some are streamed live on our Facebook page, whereas more complicated services with more videos are put on YouTube, or some may be audio-only services. We also provide a midweek service and other prayer resources. All details are posted on this website shortly before or see the live services page if you're having trouble viewing the service.
If you're having trouble finding the live services on a Sunday morning, we have created a quick instruction video to try to help. Do let Rachel know if you still can't get it to work, but if all else fails go to the Facebook page after 11am on a Sunday and there should be a post saying "Bluebell Benefice was live" which will be a recording of the service.
Remember that the live-streamed services have 10 minutes of bells or images before the service starts, so you can skip over that if watching later.
Instructions on how to watch
The service will be live-streamed from around 9:50am each Sunday, on the Bluebell Benefice Facebook page. You might like to print the order of service if you would like to follow the responses.
You don't need a Facebook account to view the video, just go to the Facebook link after 9:50am (or reload the page with the circular arrow near the web address at the top of your screen after then) and look for the post that says "Bluebell Benefice is live now" as in the image below.
Click on the video below that and double-click again (or on a phone/tablet 'stretch' the screen with two-fingers) to make it full-screen.
If at any point the live feed is lost then go back to the Benefice Facebook page again, and refresh the page until the live feed reappears.
Some people have had problems with the Safari browser on older phones or tablets. If so perhaps try the Chrome browser if you can or use the Facebook app.
But if you can't get it to work, don't worry, as we'll post a link to the recording here a little after the service finishes.
