Thanks Gary, Tony, Tri, Gabby and the Gees. It was good to get together in this way.
One technical issue: the sound was very variable. At times it was hard to hear.
Looking forward to how things develop for next Sunday.

thanks to all, that was just what I needed here in iso these last few days! A very confronting psalm, but reminds us what others have endured in the past and helps put our current situation into perspective.

Thank you! Well done all for your time, teamwork and creativity! I found it engaging and connecting. Loved the wind blown Gary segment, your message and the timely scripture readings. I particularly liked the surprising end to the video, thanks Celia. Adding my thoughts and prayers to everyone's.

Can only agree with you Yimfong - hope you and Stephen are staying well!!
What a great service it's so nice to be reminded of God's love at this time whilst also being able to have a good laugh as well - the reading in Indonesian was great too:)

Great work. Evidence of a great deal of communication and coordination with a lot of people expressing a breadth of talent and thoughtfulness. I go back to my petri-dish [school] on Monday, a challenge to minister hope in an increasingly stressed environment. Many thanks.

Thank you so much to all involved. It was a wonderful effort to come up with such a lovely gift with limited time and resources. I feel we’re still a community even though apart and thank you all for making that possible. Love to you all from Linda

Thank you to the team of talented people who put this service together. Interesting facets to consider at this time in our lives. Great to see the community working together even though we have to distance physically. Good resources and reflections provides wonderful support to us all.

Thank you for allowing me to be a visitor at Ashburton today, I enjoyed the service. 
Although we cannot see each other, these ideas show that ‘Church’ can be done in different ways - I’ve never been on the beach before as part of a service. I’m guessing it was JJ.
Thanks Gary and your team for such a great effort.

This is a time where I am really missing the Ashy community, it was wonderful to be able to join the service in this way. Thanks for organising, well done. Blessings, Connie Killey (Mogg)

Thankyou for such a thoughtful, highly relevant and really well executed virtual church gathering. We are very grateful for all the time the team must have put in to creating this new worship experience. And now we have proof that one just can't have too many Celias!

Many thanks to the wonderful team. I do love being able to revisit these thoughtful words. Would love the Lord's Prayer to be included it has always been an important part of my Christian life. Actually l would have loved to be walking along that windy beach.

Come as you are-- well I did in my dressing gown and fluffy slippers - not Sunday but Tuesday very early in the morning as the birds were singing - with a real coffee ( no instant I have the time to brew) . I closed my eyes and imagined the faces that of those who were present at the sermon even if only in spirit. I wondered if you all had everything you needed - I sent you all a little prayer then I watched and listened - Thank you for your passion, and creativity bringing us comfort and wisdom --- blessings Lyn
