In these uncertain times we are forced to resort to new ways of sharing in the fellowship of God.
As we would still very much like to share in the practice of worshiping together as a community we have started “Church Unusual” where the service is live streamed on our YouTube Channel.
This morning we had our first live service and are very please to announce that we had 120 views which is a great response to the initiative.
For those who were unable to connect and watch the live stream please watch the recording.
For many of us this was the first time we would have experienced spiritual communion by saying the prayer found in the pew leaflet:
Prayer at Spiritual Communion
Jesus, may all that is you flow into me.
May your body and blood be my food and drink.
May your passion and death be my strength and life.
Jesus, with you by my side enough has been forgiven.
May the shelter I seek be the shadow of your cross.
Let me not run from the love which you offer but hold me safe from the forces of evil.
On each of my dyings shed your light and your love.
Keep calling to me until that day comes, when with your saints, I may praise you forever.
We hope you enjoyed the service and encourage you to please send in images of you and your family watching the service to the parish office on firstname.lastname@example.org
