Small Church? Just the right size!
Project Reconnect is a worship resource that is published weekly to help congregations with their worship service.
It includes a PDF information sheet with video messages, music resources and discussion starters. Downloads are free but we would appreciate your donations to continue our work. There is a charge for DVDs.
WELCOME TO PROJECT RECONNECT
An initiative of the Uniting Church in Australia
Project Reconnect is a resource for small congregations without the services of a Minister. We provide messages based on the Revised Common Lectionary to assist congregations to structure worship. We also provide videos of songs recorded by various church choirs from Together in Song as well as other sources to assist in the absence of a musician. We started using DVDs in 2004, and are now offering an online service available on demand. Other advantages of online are that you can select the messages that suit your circumstances and downloads are free. For those who prefer the DVD format it will continue as it has since we started in 2004, but there will be a charge for each DVD ordered.
These videos can be played by clicking on one of the images above. (The image can be expanded to full screen by clicking the “four arrows” logo in the bottom right corner. To return to half screen, click the four arrows logo again.) In half screen view, you can download the file, save it on your computer and drag it into a PowerPoint (or similar presentation software) or play by clicking on the triangular “start” button. We have a growing catalogue of messages, songs and information sheets for the last 9 months. Our back catalogue will also be loaded gradually as the site settles down. There are two weekly messages – a main message of around 10 minutes and a shorter All Age message for the young (as well as the young at heart).
Elsewhere in this site you will find more information including a template for building your own service of worship if you need help getting started.
The pdf information sheet can be accessed and printed or stored on your computer to assist worship planning.
