Beginning Sunday, February 7, 2021, Truth For Life will no longer stream Sunday morning worship live from Parkside Church. This change means that the complete service, beginning at 9:45 a.m. eastern, will no longer be viewable at truthforlife.org/live, on Truth For Life’s YouTube and Facebook pages, or through Truth For Life’s Roku, Fire TV, and Apple TV channels. The service will also no longer be available through the Alexa app.
Why is Truth For Life no longer streaming Parkside Church’s Sunday morning services when Alistair is preaching?
Truth For Life’s mission is to teach the Bible with clarity and relevance so that unbelievers will be converted, believers will be established, and local churches will be strengthened. Our desire is to come alongside the local church, not to replace it in any way. The international livestream of Sunday morning worship by Truth For Life may unintentionally detract from local church attendance, membership, and involvement.
Will I still be able to watch the Sunday sermon?
Yes. As always, the sermon from the previous Sunday will still be available to view early during the following week through Truth For Life. You can find it in the mobile app in the Recent Sermons section or here on the website, where the sermon will be accompanied by a complete transcript. Alistair’s full sermon will also be available on our YouTube page. This content is provided as a supplement to the instruction you receive at your local church.
What if I can’t gather with a local church due to the pandemic?
If your local church isn’t gathering in person, we encourage you to watch your local church’s livestream or participate in whatever way your local church has established during the pandemic.
What if my local church has no alternative options, or what if I don’t belong to a local church? Can I still watch Parkside’s livestream?
The Sunday morning worship livestream can still be found on Parkside Church’s social channels (YouTube | Facebook ), which are recommended, or at the Parkside Church website beginning at 9:45 a.m. eastern. The Sunday worship service, in its entirety, will be available for twenty-four hours following the completion of the service.
If you don’t currently attend a local church, we strongly encourage you to get involved with one. Being a member of a local church is the pattern established in the Bible to provide growth, fellowship, and mutual care within the body of Christ. If you have questions about how to find a Bible-based church, Alistair’s series What Is the Church? or Seven Marks of an Effective Church will be a great help.

Will Truth For Life still stream other live events from Parkside Church?
Truth For Life may livestream other events in the future through truthforlife.org/live and various other online outlets, but the last Sunday service livestream will be January 31, 2021.
