Resources for Sunday and Daily Worship

An Act of Spiritual Communion  PDF of the Order for Spiritual Communion here. When unable to receive Holy Comunion normally, it's possible to make an Act of Spiritual Communion. It can be used at any time, but  you may like to use it at 10.00am on Sundays when the Mass is being said in the Benefice.

Sunday Sermons

Readings and Meditations for 10 April - May 2022

Sermon booklet from Sacraments Series

NB. you can access the Bible online here

 

Streamed & Recorded Worship from other sources

Rather than record services in house, we’ve decided that it would be best to direct you towards a couple of ‘live-streamed’ options instead which are usually also available as recordings later in the day too:
 

Leicester Cathedral at 10.30am on Sundays via their Facebook page (The video should be accessible, even if you’re not ‘on Facebook’)
 
Hereford Cathedral at 10am on Sundays, via their website.

 

Daily Hope phoneline offers music, prayers and reflections as well as full worship services from the Church of England at the end of a telephone line. The line – which is available 24 hours a day on 0800 804 8044 – has been set up particularly with those unable to join online church services during the period of restrictions in mind. Do please pass on the number to anyone you think might value it.

Daily Prayer Morning and Evening Prayer is still being said in the parish using Zoom. You're very welcome to join us. Please email: revchrisjohnson.wbs@gmail.com for more information.

Funerals 

As many people are unable to attend the funerals of loved ones at this time, you can find an order of service to use at home here.
