SUNDAY LIVE STREAM WATCH BUDDIES
This year has taught us a lot about what it means to be a family together, even when we are unable or limited in our ability to meet in person due to changing coronavirus measures.
While the shape of church community has changed in response to ongoing coronavirus measures, our heart for community and gathering has not. In the next season, we will not able to meet together in larger groups, but what if church would meet on a small scale all over the city?
Our challenge to you: in your life group, your geographical area, or amongst your community outside church – grab a friend or a family unit from 1 other household and invite them around to your house on Sunday mornings. At its very core, church is a time to meet with God and meet with others – to share, pray and worship together. That can be a group of 2 or (as we hope for again one day) a Sunday gathering when we can have a whole church community together.
What does it involve?
It’s a simple concept – find one other person or family unit and commit to watching the Sunday service together for the next 6 weeks. This falls within government guidelines for allowed visitors at home, and allows you to connect regularly in-person with someone else from church. During the service you can watch together, pray together, and do communion together (if you feel comfortable, you can even share a meal together after the service).
How can I get connected to a Sunday Watch Buddy?
It’s really simple – invite someone who is in your life group, lives in the area or who would enjoy connecting in this way.

Is it a one-time thing? Or am I stuck with my Watch Buddy forever?
This first Sunday Watch Buddy season will run for 6 weeks from November to mid-December. During this time you’ll meet regularly with the same Watch Buddy. In December, we’ll take a short break. After that, in the next Sunday Watch Buddy season, you can partner up with a different Sunday Watch Buddy.
