We will not gather in large numbers to worship this Sunday. For the coming weeks the NewHope worship experience will be different – small gatherings, a wide variety of venues, recorded content and live chat facilities for support and prayer. We will be dependent on our phones, social media and web platforms to stay connected.

At 10am on Sunday (22 March) NewHope Online Worship will be available. You can find out more at It will be 45 minutes of pre-recorded content to support your worship experience together. The live chat will be available during the service and you will have ongoing (indefinite) access to the service content.

I know you may have neighbours and non-Christian family members whom you will share this content with and I will be very attentive to that fact as I host this time.

We will not be gathering at the Community Centre in Blackburn, but we will have a skeleton team present from 9:30am until 11:30am to service the chat activities and address unexpected community needs.
