Hi Everyone

Details
This weekend we are going to do something a bit different and have a Bake Off!

How’s this going to work online you might ask. Well firstly the judges obviously won’t be able to taste the cakes you make (so make whatever cake you want!) Instead it will be a cake decoration competition based around the theme of – "Out Of This World"

We will all meet online in Zoom first to register and discuss timings before going off to make the cake, have a snack (provided by us assuming you book using a snack ticket) and then carry out the decorating. Before the judging takes place for which there will be a prize!

We are going to ask you if possible to book in for this one so we have an idea of numbers and if you would like a snack provided by us you need to book in by Tuesday evening at the latest (so we make sure it’s safely quarantined before delivery.) If you aren’t sure you can come yet that is absolutely fine just book using one of the general admission tickets and you can book right up until it starts!

You can book using the Eventbrite page here –

https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/online-bake-off-tickets-142404841715

I’m really looking forward to this it’s going to be a bit different from usual but a fun competition if you any questions about please don’t hesitate to get in touch and I will see you all on Saturday!

SMART This Week

Hi Everyone

I’m aware it got left off from the weekly email this week but just to remind you that we do have another session of SMART this Saturday (20th) (I might of accidentally but the date for the session as 20/02/2020 which meant it didn’t show up…)

As it’s just started this week are going to be looking at Lent and what that might mean for us in this year where the idea of giving something up doesn’t seem quite the same.

So join us from 17:00 – 18:30 online as we play games together and think about this. (The joining information will be in the Discord server.)

God Bless

Youth Led Service Reminder

Hi Everyone

Just a quick reminder that this week are making the service this Sunday and would love to get as many of you as possible involved. You can find out the details here but essentially we would love you to film yourself quickly answering some questions that we will use as part of the service on Sunday. Also if you want to get involved with the music you can find out more about that here.

Remember the deadline for all this stuff is Friday (19th) evening after that it’s too late and we won’t be able to use it so make sure it’s sent by then!

Any questions let me know and excited to see what everyone does for this Sunday!

God Bless

Music For Feb Youth Led Service

Hi Everyone

Sorry for all the messages today (this should be the final one!) But wanted to get this one out there ASAP for anyone who wants to join in with the singing or playing an instrument for the service on Sunday.

We are only recording one new song this time (we are going to re-use some of the ones we recorded before) and the new one we are recording is – Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone.

If you haven’t sung or played before for one of these online services and would like to here is how it works.

  1. Download the backing track either the one with a metronome on it or the one without. (Up to you whichever you find easier.)
  2. Record/film yourself singing/playing along with. Make sure to wear headphones so we can’t hear the backing track ideally film in landscape and don’t worry about it being perfect (we are going for more of a live feel here.) Use whatever equipment you have to access to (using a phone is fine) but make sure the sound quality is okay (people notice bad sound way more than bad visuals.) If you record the video and audio separately please include a clap at the beginning that’s obviously visible and audible to help me sync up the two file. (Don’t worry I will edit it out.) Musical Note – If you are an instrumentalist record yourself from the beginning of the track (to make it easier to sync everything up) but please only come in with your instrument at the start of the second verse so we have a quieter start. If you are a singer obviously start singing when the singing starts on the track.
  3. Upload it to the dropbox folder here by Friday evening (19th) any later than that and we won’t have time to include it in the service and use it.

If you have any technical issues with any of it let me know and I will try and help out as well though obviously the sooner you ask more the more chance is we can do something to fix it. I hope that all makes sense if you have questions about it please let me know and I look forward to seeing what you guys contribute. 😀

God Bless

Youth Led Service Upload Update

Hi Everyone

As you know we are doing something different for our youth-led service this week (you can find out more here) however the link I sent round originally to upload things was wrong sorry about that!

This is the link you will have to use for uploading:

https://www.dropbox.com/request/cge9pVtyDQbd4feCXCDP

Sorry for any confusion and please do get involved with sharing something for this Sunday the more people the better!

Youth Led Service (21st February)

Update – The Link given below is incorrect please use the following link – https://www.dropbox.com/request/cge9pVtyDQbd4feCXCDP

Hi Everyone

A week on Sunday we have our next Youth-Led Service (21st), the theme for this one is Encouraging One Another so rather than just having one person do that talk I thought we would do something a bit different. What I would love for you to do is to film a short video of yourself answering all or some of the questions below and then we will stitch them together and we can share encouragement and advice to the church together.

I would love for you to do this even if you feel like you don’t have much to say (I promise you, you do.) If being on camera yourself is a problem feel free to upload audio instead and we can use that instead. (If you do this and are happy to send a picture of yourself as well that will help but no worries if not.) Lastly don’t worry about saying lots just keep it simple and please can you do a separate file for each question (that will make the edit so much easier!)

The questions themselves are:

  • How have people (either from church/youth work or outside of it) encouraged and helped you in the last year?
  • How does your faith help and encourage you?
  • What you would say to the rest of the church to encourage them?

As I say if you aren’t sure what to say for some of the questions that’s okay just record answers to the ones you are happy to answer and once you have them recorded you can upload them to me using this link:

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/luf5iml9b0y38qw/AACSuF6GI4vKc8TIyIDhlqRla?dl=0 (see new link above)

Lastly can I please have these by Friday evening (19th) so I can get them edited together in time.

I hope that all makes sense if something doesn’t let me know and please please do give this a go even if you aren’t sure it would amazing to hear from as many people as possible!

God Bless

Hi Everyone

This week at SMART we are once again going to be using Lego during the session as we think about what Lent might look like this year in a year when we have already given up a lot of the things we would normally be doing.

If you don’t have access to Lego and would like to join in that’s fine just let me know by Thursday and we can get some to you and if you do have Lego (I’m aware for some of you the answer is you have a lot of Lego!) then make sure you have some to hand for SMART this coming Saturday!

One of the grand traditions of our youth groups is playing a game where we no someone can’t be trusted and we all think its each other and we have a big argument about it. (I’m sure this is a fine and healthy tradition to have…) If only there was someway to have the same effect online? Well as I’m sure you know there is with the game Among Us! So that’s what we are going to be playing this Saturday afternoon. If you haven’t played before it works at lot like the game mafia that we have played at SMART were their is an imposter and we have to guess who it is but it could be any of us!

Details
This week we are having our annual Christingle service online! Obviously it’s going to look a bit different this year so if you want to join in from the comfort of your home you will need:

– one orange; – 4 cocktail sticks; – a piece of foil, about 2/3 inches sqaure; – one small slim candle (you could use a birthday candle although a bigger one is better); – a few squidgy sweets or pieces of dried fruit (depending on preference), you will need probably around 16 (more if you have a habit of absent mindedly eating them while making it…); – a piece of red ribbon long enough to go round the orange (we use double sided tape to fix it but you can use glue or just tie a knot); – a match or lighter;

Don’t worry if you haven’t done it before instructions will be provided on the day and if you manage it send me a photo so we can share with others how it went! (Historically I’m really bad at this and usually a 4 year old has to do it for me so please send inspiration!)

As always you will find the service premiering on Youtube at www.sheet.church/youtube
