In these challenging times, our faith and the connection we feel with Christ are more important than ever. Along with this, it's also vital that we stay connected as a community: to each other and to the church.
As many of you cannot attend services at the current time due to responsible self-isolation, we wanted to do what we can to bring the church to you. We have a vibrant community on Facebook
and we encourage you to follow us for updates and messages from us. However, for those of you who do not use Facebook, we have included a selection of media on this page, to allow you to stay connected.
The information and media below fits into four categories:
- Sunday services (video and audio)
- Kids corner
- Updates from the rector
- Other videos
The plan going forward is to 'livestream' a service every Sunday morning at 11am. If you are not able to connect at this time or you don't have Facebook, please check this page under 'Sunday services' where the most recent service will be uploaded asap.
During this time of transition it is important for families to continue encouraging and teaching their children the faith. In the 'kids corner' section we will be posting up videos and other audio of activities to encourage and enable discipleship of our youngest parishioners.
Every couple of days our rector, Alastair, will endeavour to post a short video just to keep in touch and 'say hello' to you all (as well as inform people of any pertinent developments). You can find these in the section 'updates from the rector'.
It is difficult not being able to meet together physically and in the beautiful buildings God has blessed us with in this parish. However, the Bible tells us so clearly that Church is not a building but rather the people of God. Our faith in Christ is something which needs constant attention and nurturing. Within the 'other videos' section, we will be posting a range of material to help you in your walk. While we cannot meet physically, Scripture still instructs us to 'not give up meeting together' (Hebrews 10 v25). It is our intention to hold bible study and prayer meetings as appropriate going forward and we will advise you of timings asap. To begin with, however, please check out at 8pm each night a short video of daily prayer by Alastair from the book of Common Prayer.
Please note, as we are adding new content every few days we strongly suggest refreshing/reloading this page to ensure you see the latest media and messages.
