Marlborough Deanery Combined Lockdown Services
This Sunday 29th August, Nativity church will be taking part in a combined Marlborough Deanery worship service online at 10am.
As we continue to face the restrictions of Lockdown in levels 4 & 3, Marlborough Anglicans will continue to offer combined online services using both Zoom and YouTube. The below links will remain the same each week, with the YouTube linking to the ‘channel’ rather than the individual live stream. From the channel you are able to access any current live stream or watch previous services.
You are able to join us either via Zoom or by watching live on YouTube.
Access and viewing will be live from 9:45am each Sunday morning.
If you are not sure on Zoom vs YouTube, Zoom allows some interaction but requires a microphone and camera, while YouTube is viewing only and is generally the easiest option.
These will also be communion services, and we invite you to bring bread, wine or juice to join us as we celebrate.
Thanks to everyone for your adaptability through these ever changing times. You are amazing!
Nativity Update 20th August
Hello again Nativity family!
Many of you will have been listening to the 3pm update from our Prime Minister where we have heard that the nationwide level 4 lockdown has been extended until Tuesday 24th of August at 11:59pm. This means that we will not be able to meet for church services this weekend.
Despite this we can still share in services. Our vicar Glen will be beginning our "Burning Questions" sermon series with “Thinking Christianly: Towards a biblical understanding…” this will be available on: (451) Thinking Christianly: Toward a Biblical Understanding - YouTub from 8am on Sunday.
We are also invited to join in with a special combined online service for the Marlborough Deanery on Sunday at 10am. This service will include communion and participants are invited to bring their own bread and wine/juice.

Watch on Youtube:
If you are not sure on Zoom vs YouTube: Zoom allows some interaction but requires a microphone and camera, while YouTube is viewing only and is generally the easiest option.
All events and in-person meetings that have been scheduled before midnight on Tuesday are cancelled and we will await further direction on Monday as to what level of restriction will be in place after this. If you are unsure about a particular event please contact the office or the leader(s) of the particular group.
The Combined Communion Service to be held at the Wesley Centre, next Wednesday has been cancelled and the Music and Shared meal scheduled for Saturday the 28th has been post phoned for now due to the uncertainty at this time.
Please note that no-one is allowed to enter the church buildings or to visit other households during level 4 but we pray that you will continue to care from each other via phone calls and messages.
Blessings on you all,
The Nativity Staff team
Level 4 Update 19/8/21
Good afternoon Nativity family!
As you know we are to be in level 4 until midnight on Friday and still awaiting news on any movement from this. At this stage, while we will plan to meet in the church if allowed, we are working on on-line options. We will share more on this once the government has made an announcement tomorrow so please look for an update here before Sunday.
Stay well and hold on to the hope and strength we have in Christ.
Blessings on you all,
