Pre-recorded Service for the second Sunday of Lent.
This Sunday is the second Sunday of Lent. Revd Chris Campbell and Sam Duckhouse are leading our Church at Home service this week, with contributions from the choir and a number of members of the congregation. Revd James Shakespeare will be preaching, and will be particularly reflecting on Jesus' call to each of his disciples, to 'take up their cross and follow him'. You might like to watch the service at 10am, joining with many of us in doing so – but it will be available to watch any time from Saturday afternoon. The service sheet for the service can be downloaded here.
If you join us at 10am, you might like to join us afterwards at 11am for Coffee and Conversation on Zoom
6pm BCP Evening Prayer with Sermon (via Zoom)
At 6pm, we will have our online service of Evening Prayer via Zoom. All the words will be shared on the screen and it will include a short sermon/ reflection. This week it will be led by Rev James Shakespeare, with reflection from Tom Owen, our Ridley ordinand.
Please message us for the zoom links for any of our services.
