Rev. Steven Stead returns to the Central Parish YouTube Channel this week where he talks about the importance of belonging. Despite our physical isolation, we can still connect digitally and find things to be grateful for.

Part I:

Extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures, ones that we could not have imagined just a few short weeks ago. Rev. Steven Stead, Pastor of the Central Parish Presbyterian Charge, which includes Clyde River and Canoe Cove churches, has risen to the challenge to minister online to his congregation at a time when feeling part of a community is vital. Even though people can’t meet together in a physical place of worship, we are fortunate to have technology where we can connect via the internet.

Central Parish has set up its own YouTube Channel which you can subscribe to here and be alerted when a new video is added. Steven has posted his first service in two parts which we have embedded below for viewing on our site, or you can click on video to watch on YouTube. Of course, he adds a little humour at the beginning when he explains the solution he came up with to alleviate his awkwardness of preaching to an empty church. Music is provided by their praise team called Revelation.

On behalf of the community, thank you, Steven, for being a good sport and moving outside your comfort zone to continue your important ministry at a time when we need your spiritual guidance, and humour, too. We have a large website audience, so your ministry will reach not only Clyde River and Canoe Cove but many other communities across Canada, the United States and around the world. COVID-19 knows no boundaries; neither does God’s love nor the ability for us to come together.

We invite viewers to leave a comment below to let us know what part of the world you are watching from and how you are getting along. We encourage you to share this link with your family and friends. If you would like to reach out to Rev. Steven Stead, you can email him at steven.stead@hotmail.com.
