Join us in worship

Because of the Coronavirus precautions, we are not holding any public services of worship. So we need to discover how to help you share with us in worship - and quickly.

So here are our first attempts at making a video for you to watch at home and join in with us:

Pilot Video

Mothering Sunday Worship (for 22nd March 2020)

Passion Sunday Worship (for 29th March 2020)

We would welcome your feedback on them, as we are still learning.  We'd particularly like comments on spiritual things like:

  • How is the balance between prayer and talk?
  • Is there too much singing or too little?
  • Should there be bread and wine?
  • Should there be more inset sections with other people involved?
  • How should we include community concerns in the prayers?

Our hope is that during the period that we are closed we can keep church members and other visitors in touch with us by using video like this.  It will never be a substitute for meeting face-to-face and joining together in worship, but perhaps it can be a little bit better than nothing at all.

Daily Prayer

On our weekly pew sheet we usually publish the daily bible readings for the week, taken from the Common Worship Lectionary (GS 1520A) with Psalms read sequentially.  As we have no pew sheet during the Coronavirus precautions, here's what we would have printed for this week (the week of Lent 5):

  • Mon: Psalm 7, Exodus 8:1-19, Hebrews 11:17-31.
  • Tue: Psalm 8, Exodus 8:20-end, Hebrews 11:32-12:2.
  • Wed: Psalm 9, Exodus 9:1-12, Hebrews 12:3-13.
  • Thu: Psalm 10, Exodus 9:13-end, Hebrews 12:14-end.
  • Fri: Psalm 11, Exodus 10, Hebrews 13:1-16.
  • Sat: Psalm 12,  Exodus 11, Hebrews 13:17-end.
