Worship at Home. Today we have our pre-recorded Service of the Word online service available for you to join in with here or by typing https://youtu.be/xaDrM38xxjE into your web browser. With a run time of just over 35 mins the service has readings and prayers from three of our Group’s congregations as well as a homily from Rev’d Christine Pocock and four hymns for you to join in with, performed and provided by St Martin-in-the-Fields and the Royal School of Church Music. Next week, for Pentecost, Revd Rob Varty will be giving the homily.
Whilst our church buildings may be closed, in being "church" we remain very much alive and active! You can join Neil and members of our parishes online through Zoom at the sessions below:
Ø Morning Prayer – Mon- Thu @ 08:30 (approx. 25 mins)
Ø Evening Prayer – Mon- Thu @ 17:30 (approx. 25 mins)
Ø Coffee and Catch up – Thu & Sun @10.30 (up to 1.5hrs) – you need to make your own coffee…
If you want to join in with any of these sessions please do contact Neil ahead of time so I can ensure you get the invite, and… if you haven’t used Zoom yet and are anxious about how it works, I would be very happy to have a dry run connection with you beforehand so you can check how it runs from your home PC/mac/iPad etc.
