9.30am: Parish Eucharist livestreamed from The Rectory
Please do join me online and please do invite your friends as well. We are keeping things relatively simple to start with so we can get the basics right and then build from there- and once I’m out of self-isolation we should be able to do that from St Paul’s. We will have music, played by Chris Cipkin before and after the service, if all goes well, but will otherwise have a said service. It will be brilliant to be together as one Church and one community and one parish in the best way we can, Sunday by Sunday. Attached is the Order of Service we will be using, which is the main one for Lent. It’s the purple one St Paul’s people see every Lent and Advent. We will keep Mothering Sunday too but the Lent Book feels most appropriate for the current situation.
Daffodils are going to be put by the statue of Mary as usual, and a bucket of daffodils will be left outside St Paul’s for anyone passing to either pick up and give to a neighbour, or keep, or put on a grave.
Our technical consultant, Peter Wells, offers this helpful explanation of how to find it (and do ask a friend or family member to help if you still have questions):
I know that for some of you, creating a Facebook account may seem a bit daunting, or maybe you are in a job where having an account could be risky, so I will let you borrow mine. On Sunday, if you follow this link – http://www.facebook.com/livemap, then when it prompts you to log in, either use your Facebook account, or use my email address email@example.com and the password NoCheesePlease (no one would guess that would they?). when the live stream starts you should see it immediately because I follow the church Facebook.
If you miss the live stream, the video will also be available on Facebook when the service finishes, and we shall be providing a link to it on the website.
