Resources for your online church gatherings.


Church at home

On this page, you will find a regularly updated collection of resources to help you connect with the millions of Christians who have been self-isolating for years – not because of a biological virus, but because their faith is seen as toxic and dangerous.

Why not use these resources as part of a virtual community group, or in a livestreamed service?

Secret Church

Secret Church: Online Edition takes experiences from underground church meetings and translates them into a simple session outline for church small groups and youth groups. You might find yourself creating a hiding place or singing a worship song in whispers. Maybe you’ll hurriedly have to hide the evidence of your faith or share communion in the most unusual way. A companion resource is available for children and families too.
