Park United Reformed Church, Reading are hosting a "Blended" Worship in Cyber Church Seminar. The idea is to share knowledge of and experience in facing the challenges of interactive and simultaneous "hybrid" forms of worship in physical buildings and online.
During the lockdown, church leaders developed creative worship ideas to connect with their congregation. An earlier seminar (May 2020) was timely in preparation for leading worship in cyber church. A useful resource is now available: https://elts.org.uk/wcc/
In view of the gradual release of lockdown, Dr Phebe Mann and Dr David Wong have identified the necessity for hybrid forms of worship — blended worship in church buildings maintaining social distancing, online participation and interaction amongst all worshippers in the congregation, simultaneously or otherwise.
This participatory seminar aims to provide an opportunity for participants to share their experience of facing the challenges of hybrid forms of worship.
There are two dates being offered: 29 August 2020 or 5 September 2020

Two dates are available: 29 August 2020 10:00am-12:00pm and 5 September 2020 2:00pm-4:00pm. Please attend one:
