Everyone is warmly invited to join us for live worship – this week we will even have some hymns. We will be singing “The Lord’s my shepherd” (Townend), “How deep the Father’s love” and “My song is love unknown.” You can find the words in the online order of service – just click on the link to Service 5 Apr 20
All you need to do is to find the church Facebook page – as it is a public page, you don’t even need a Facebook account to join in. The service starts at 10.30am, but live streaming starts from 10.20am. We will also be holding a Zoom chat after the service! Look out for the link in the comments.
Whether you are used to church or not, you are very warmly invited to join us.
Tomorrow is Palm Sunday, yet we are unable to process and celebrate as we would wish. However there is no reason we cannot proclaim Hosanna!
If you have a garden, you could make a wreath for your front door, with some greenery and an old palm cross (we found three in the Vicarage!) .. or make a cross from paper or sticks. If you don’t have a garden, you can still make something to put on your door or in a window where it will be seen by those passing by.
We need to make a special effort to mark the church season when we are unable to meet together .. post pictures of your crosses in the comments or on our Facebook page, both to celebrate Jesus and to share your creativity!
This coming Sunday is Palm Sunday, and we will have to do without our usual procession and the distribution of palm crosses. So here’s a suggestion … if you can, cut a branch of greenery from your garden (or ask a neighbour over the garden fence), and attach it to your front door. If you still have one, add a palm cross from previous years. Let’s remind our community that it’s a special day.
And don’t forget to join us for our Sunday service, live online … find our Facebook page (see sidebar for link), and join in. We’ll post a link to the order of service soon.
I have been away on a very special retreat and am now off sick, but it has been impossible to ignore all the news coverage about COVID-19 – indeed there has been a fantastic group of workers here at St Barnacles who have worked so hard behind the scenes making sure we are following […]
It is hard to believe that it was just over a year ago when we opened the doors of the church to the local community. Would anybody come? Would we have enough people on the team? What if it didn’t work – would we simply have to give up and start again? We had an […]
