Spiritual Communion Service for Mothering Sunday 22nd March 2020

Hello and welcome to our service for today. At the beginning of our service we are going to be lighting a candle, so you might want to go and get one ready before pressing ‘play’. Join in with the words in yellow. This is the first time we’ve done something like this so please do leave a comment below letting us know what worked, what didn’t and any ideas you might have. If you click on the arrows next to the word ‘vimeo’ in the bottom right of the screen you can go to full screen mode.

If you have come to watch with children, do watch this video in the place of the sermon:

This Mothering Sunday we’re calling all churches to a National Day of Prayer and Action.

At 7pm, light a candle as a symbol of the light of life, Jesus Christ, our source and hope in prayer.

    Thank you Bryony. It was lovely for us to be able to visit St James’ and St John the Baptist churches in this way and to share the Eucharist with you all.
    With love
    Bevil and Fiona

    thank you Bryony
    I found the service incredibly moving and your words profound.
    I know of a few people who lit a candle last night.
    Stephen and I are in self isolation, luckily we have family closeby.
