Book in for Sunday 4th April!
It is with great pleasure (and a whole lot of excitement) that we invite you to book your seat to be in our live congregation on Sunday 4th April! Tickets go live from 6pm tonight!
We really can’t wait to be together again!
For the next few months at least, our services will look very much as they did in the Autumn. Refresh yourself on all the details of tickets, masks, temperature checks etc here – though a year into the pandemic, there won’t be any shocks!
Our Sunday’s page also contains a helpful list of FAQ’s which cover everything from can I sing? to how often can I attend? It is the first stop for all your questions.
You can get your ticket here – or if you now have access to MyChurchSuite, book your tickets and store them there, along with details to all our TVC Church events (for more information on this click here).
You also now have the ability to cancel your ticket through MyChurchSuite or through a link in your confirmation email. If your circumstances change and you are not able to attend – please do make use of this facility so that somebody else can be there.
This Sunday, we conclude this mini-series of ‘Lessons in Season’. Matt Horner will be sharing with us what God has been teaching him through ‘A Lesson in Opportunity.
The team will once again be broadcasting live from The Oakwood Centre, though with no congregation present this week.
An Audience with Pete Glasby
You may recognise him as Pete from the TVC Church worship team, or you may know him as ‘Pete the electrician’; but this Sunday night you have the opportunity to meet Pete the Performer!
Pete is a singer-songwriter and all round talented Musician who brings his love of music and own unique style, with a heart to express his hope in Jesus through deep set lyrics.
Join Pete this Sunday from 8pm on Facebook as he shares his latest songs with us, or join our Zoom ‘Live Audience’, hosted by Dave Mumford, where you can pose questions to Pete about his songs, lyrics, inspiration or anything else that you would love to know!
The Easter Trail
Our Eagglescliffe Easter trail has begun!
As restrictions begin to relax a little this week, why not take the opportunity to meet up with another family and take a walk around our Easter trail?
Simply begin at Orchard shops in Eagglescliffe (leaving your car in the car park if you have driven over) and then use a map, or good old google, to visit each of the 8 decorated gardens of our lovely TVC Church families (listed in this image). You may even find a goodie bag at the end!
Take lots of photos and tag us in them on Facebook or Instagram!
This lovely trail is for everyone! So get inviting your local family and friends to enjoy a stroll and discover the reason for Easter on the way.
Join us for a time of reflection and communion this Good Friday, as we remember Jesus’ awesome sacrifice.
Claire and Warren Harrison will be leading us on Zoom so that we can enjoy a sense of ‘togetherness’ as we reflect.
Join us from 7-7.30pm on Friday 2nd April and come prepared with your bread and wine (or alternative).
We will send out the zoom code to all of our TVC Church contacts, but if you are not in our address book, click here to sign up for a Zoom code.
Whether you will be in the congregation at The Oakwood Centre or in the congregation at home, we have an exciting plan for our Easter Sunday Service!
Our media team have been working hard to gather lots of exciting and mega cute content and we are blessed to have our new elder, Terry Young bringing God’s word to us.
Online and in person – 11am Sunday 4th April.
Calling all creative people!
Our next online creative crew is set for Monday 5th April at 7.30pm.
Anybody is welcome to come along. Bring your creative projects for our creative ‘show and tell’ and enjoy gathering and swapping creative ideas!
Our next Alpha course is less than 2 weeks away!
Alpha is a fantastic place for anybody to explore life, faith and meaning and to ask their questions in a safe environment.
Karen recently found Jesus through an Alpha course and it has transformed her life. I asked her, what would you say to a Christian who is thinking of asking a friend to join the Alpha course. This is what she had to say:
“I would say be bold! I had been curious about Alpha for years, at least 10! Even though I had Christian friends, no one thought to ask.”
We have a new, easy to find Alpa sign up page at www.hope.tvcchurch/alpha
Alpha Online – begins Wednesday 7th April
Could You Help?
There is nothing quite like being part of a team and working together to achieve something wonderful. Every Sunday, our fab team of volunteers make our Sunday services happen. From those up front to those behind cameras, every single one is needed so that the rest of us can sit back and be blessed.
We are looking to create a brand new team, which will work alongside the worship team, speakers, and tech team to steam our services from The Oakwood Centre. If you are able-bodied and would love to serve the Church, get in touch with Martin Kempson so see how you could be a blessing.
Graphic Designer Wanted
Are you handy with Graphic Design?
Do you have 8 hours a week to work within our wonderful TVC Church Communications team?
We are looking for a talented Graphic Designer for a maternity cover post from 1st May 2021 until the end of January 2022. It is a paid position at £11hr for up to 8 hours a week. You will need to be able to produce designs for our website, video, social media and for print.
If you are interested, please drop Sarah Glasby a message before Sunday 11th April.
Give us a Wave!
For our Easter service, we are looking to do another waving video (just like the one we did for Christmas- and how gorgeous was that!) with as many people from our wonderful church family as possible wishing everyone a ‘Happy Easter’ as possible.
It’s super simple, all you need to do is:
- Film in LANDSCAPE.
- Get everyone involved who wants to be, within your household (the more the merrier!)
- 10 seconds of waving and feel free to throw in some sort of “Happy Easter” greeting.
- Send it to the following link by Monday 29th March:
Please note, by sending a video in, you are giving us permission to use it in online.
Thank you! We can’t wait to see your faces!
What is My Church Suite?
Many of you will have had an email invitation to use ‘MyChurchSuite’ this week, but what is it? and is it really needed? Our Operations Manager, Sarah Glasby, tells us all about it.
“ChurchSuite is a system that we have used for the past 6 years to help us as a church, with all sorts of organisational bits and bobs. Within it is the ability to share some of those helpful organisational tools with our wonderful congregation. This is what we call “MyChurchSuite” (yes I know, very creative name!)
MyChurchSuite is available through the internet, but there is also an app that many people find super helpful. It allows you to book in to all our Church events, keep tickets stored in the one place, keep track of your giving, you can see when you are next on a rota and see if any of your rota’s clash. It also acts as an up-to-date address book for our Church Family.
With current situations what they are, we have re-assessed where it has been used in the past by a few and have made it available to all you lovely TVC Church people. If you have not received an invite or have questions, please do contact me, I’d love to help you get started!”
Giving to TVC Church
Continuing to be generous with your money means that we can continue to be generous in all sorts of practical ways.
You can give your tithes and offerings by bank transfer, online or by text message.
Pastoral Care and Support
If you are unwell, have symptoms of Coronavirus or need contact, support, or prayer, then please let us know. Complete the online form and our pastoral team will be in touch within 24 to 48 hours.
