Invitation to join a Pan Diocesan Service

Bishop Robert (L), with our Chaplain, Revd. Paul Brice (R)

Bishop Robert will be leading a special service next week, to mark the next phase of our journey as we edge out of ‘Lockdown’ in a variety of ways.

The service will take place on Tuesday, 7th July at 6.30pm CET. Bishop Robert will Preside and the preacher will be Revd. Helen Marshall, the Chaplain at St. Ursula’s, Berne.

The CV19 lockdown has significantly affected all of us in our Chaplaincy and Diocesan life, with anxiety being present for us often alongside a sense of creativity and resilience. We each have different experiences of this time but as we now move out of lockdown across the Diocese, there will be a Diocesan wide act of worship to mark this moment.

One of the surprising but gratifying outcomes of the pandemic has been our ability to join the Diocese together in prayer using Zoom.  On Maundy Thursday for the renewal of ordination vows, at Pentecost focussed on our Churchwardens and across the Diocese focussing on Racial Justice we have worshipped together in a way that would have been thought unimaginable a few months ago. I would like to invite you all to a further special service to mark the next phase of our journey as edge out of ‘Lockdown’ in a variety of ways.

Clergy, readers and lay-workers will be able to take part in the service via Zoom, which will be broadcast as a YouTube live stream for members of the wider community to join as well. Bishop Robert has specifically extended an invitation to all Church Members to join on YouTube.
