The church may be closed, but it is not cancelled. Whilst we continue to pray and worship in our homes, we do not pray alone. Indeed, there seems to be a plethora of on-line information and services available to support and guide us in our journey through Holy Week.
Our Chaplain, Paul has been busy recording and uploading a series of Audio files, bible readings and music to help us as we approach Good Friday and Easter. You can find these on the Chaplains prayer and worship page, or by clicking here.
Our Diocesan Bishop, the Rt. Revd. Dr. Robert Innes, Bishop of Gibraltar in Europe will be broadcasting a Service of the Word from his home for Easter Sunday. The service will be available to view via YouTube from 9am on Easter Sunday and will also be posted on our Prayer and Worship page.
In addition, The Archbishop of Canterbury will call for “a resurrection of our common life,” during his Easter Sunday sermon, which will also be available via YouTube and on this blog. The message, which will be delivered from the kitchen of the Archbishop’s flat in London, is part of the Church of England’s first national digital service for Easter Sunday. It was recorded on the Archbishop’s iPad and you can watch a sneak preview by clicking here.
Don’t forget, you can also join with others from St Andrew’s for a virtual cuppa, via Zoom, on Sunday morning at 11:30. To join the meeting, email Lisa Long for the meeting details. Also, if you’d like to be included in our telephone chat network, just let us know by emailing our support team.
We may be apart, but we are not alone.
