Re: What do we mean by Hybrid Church?
A very thought-provoking article from Pete Phillips which leaves me wondering - why have so many churches in my area simply dropped their Sunday service via Zoom and now expect everyone back in the building? Are there any churches out their who are hosting BOTH onsite and on-Zoom Sunday services?

Mark Thomas - we have embraced hybrid church, streaming our service live to youtube as it happens plus extra bits just for those who join us online Andover Baptist Church

My church has continued running hybrid services each Sunday on zoom/in-church.

Since we started tentatively worshiping in the building again we have included those at home as well using Zoom. Currently we have around 40 in the hall and 10 at home each week. We have just invested in some new technology to make the streaming easier and routine. We also distribute around 5 or so DVDS of the Zoom recording each week.

I run Zoom from my laptop on a lectern using the same graphics etc that are projected in the building. So far we have run this every Sunday morning since Pentecost. At present we are about 60/40 split between in building and on Zoom. It’s my last Sunday in post this week so I’m not sure if this will continue!

Re: Assisted dying
I think modern palliative care is effectively carrying out assisted dying by slowly increasing morphine to patients to avoid pain. Therefore the case is just academic, life is precious, sacred or God given, but in today’s medical World as opposed to early biblical time, treatment of the ill and dying has changed dramatically.

Re: When do we stop praying?
Really interesting, I have been disabled for a long time and accept that it will not change whilst I am in this life and do feel uncomfortable with prayers for miraculous change for my body. I too pray that God will use me wherever and whenever he can and have had many times when he had done just that. If I had not got my body I would not have been in the situation to help others.

Re: 'An attractive place of freshness and light'
Wonderful to see this. It’s a church I first visited in the 1970s, and so to see this gladdens the heart
