Sunday Morning Worship - Live-streaming
We also know that not everyone is comfortable with using digital channels to communicate, that's ok.
We know that many of you are working in your local parishes to support people in other ways that are equally important.
We will continue to host a live-stream service each Sunday from the Diocese of Hereford Facebook page and we encourage you to share this with friends so that they can join in from home. This Sunday we will be live with Revd Anne Dowdeswell.
Resources in our Diocese
Lots of our Churches are producing materials - here's a selection of a few that you may wish to use or share with others:
You might like to sign up to the Fownhope daily prayers newsletter.
You could join in some of the Leominster Priory online opportunities such as Messy Church at Home today at 4 pm or Online Coffee and Chat. Keep an eye on their Facebook page for more details. The Leominster team have made their materials for Messy church at home available for others to print and use too.
St Peter’s and St James' Churches in Hereford will be delivering three online services a week:
o A regular Sunday Service every week
o Wednesday Worship (going out 10.30 am) which will be an informal chat show style with a couple of songs, Bible discussion and they are asking people to send in Stories of Hope, (so stories of where we see communities coming together and God's light shining in the darkness).
o The third service is SPSJ KIDS and will go out at 9 am on Saturday mornings, this is deliberately aimed at Messy Church families, with a couple of child- friendly songs, a Bible story, short message, prayer and then links to crafts that families can do together.
All services from St Peter's and St James' Churches will be broadcast on their website where people can also chat live during the service and will be available on catch up via the SPSJ Facebook and SPSH YouTube channels
At Holy Trinity, Revd Ruth Hulse has shared that some of their choir (99% teenagers) have been amazing at organising recordings and are really wanting to help provide support to people at home. Rev Ruth particularly wanted to share the recording of Love Divine from the Hereford Cathedral School Chamber Choir recorded last week. It was organised by one of their choir and has about 6 of the Choir members in the recording. She is understandably just a little bit chuffed with them all!
In Ross-on-Wye, the benefice team made a brilliant recorded service. By Monday they had already had 720 views to their website yesterday from 176 different people with 169 watching the service at some point during the day. This week’s service will include a performance of part of Purcell’s Funeral Music performed by one of their choir. Each singer wishing to take part is recording their part at home, emailed it to Adrian Taylor our organist who edited it all together. The bass line for the performance, in that the piece that they will be singing was to be the introit for the Cathedral Eucharist last Sunday.
