Church in Progress aims to create spaces to connect with God and with one another.
All Church in Progress events are open to all – no matter how you identify or what your age or status might be. ALL are welcome and affirmed. Keep scrolling down the end of the page for details of events you can come along to. Click on the images to find out more.
We try not to do things just because they have always been done that way, we are constantly finding ways to connect our Christian faith with our everyday lives, we love noisy kids and welcome people no matter what their belief system is.
Are you someone that …
… wants to find out what a being a follower of Jesus looks like
… want to be part of a faith community but not sure about ‘church’
… you have questions about God or spiritual stuff and want to discuss them
… looking for a community of people that invest time in social justice issues
Well, Church in Progress could be just the thing you are looking for!

Pray and Plan – these happen once and month. It’s a virtual hangout using zoom so you don’t have to face the traffic or get out of your pjs! It’s a time of sharing, praying and thinking about the next monthly worship gathering. Church in Progress has found the best events are the ones we plan together. Check out https://www.facebook.com/ChurchinProgress/events/ to see when they are and to get the link to join the meeting.
Each Sunday night at 8pm in November, Church in Progress will be hosting an online service. It will be simple and short – a chance to share prayers and to prayerfully ponder a section of scripture.
Everyone is welcome to join in from their computer or smart phone at home. It doesn’t matter is you’ve never been to a Church in Progress event before. Please try and join the service at least 5 minutes before 8pm so we can start on time. To join in simply click this link https://zoom.us/j/347614595 – if you’ve never used ‘zoom’ before, it’s a good idea to to try and join the meeting 15 minutes before to ensure that it works for you.
You may also want to consider wearing headphones (to help us all with sound quality) and have a candle ready to light during the service. If there is a small group on the night, there will be a chance for you to share your prayer requests vocally. If there is a larger group, the chat box will be used to shared prayers and ideas about the scripture.
Rev Emily will be leading the service and is excited about sharing this time with you. This is the first time Church in Progress has tried anything like this, so there might be a few bumps along the way! It’s a work in progress 🙂 If the November services work well, there may be more online services like this in the future.
All Church in Progress events are open to ALL. No matter how you identify, you will be welcomed, affirmed and celebrated. Click the image below for more details.
