Remote Church – Easter 2

We can’t gather at St Mary’s for our usual Sunday service, but we can all join a collective act of worship from our homes. You can do this at 9:30am or 11:15am on Sunday morning, or whenever else is convenient.

This Sunday, 19th April, is the Second Sunday of Easter. Welcome to our service!

You can now find links to parts of the service which Fr Jeremy has recorded on video. Our Youtube channel, containing our videos, can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCF0WRLKWtkgWJjZw_d4S6Mw

Today’s service follows the Book of Common Prayer, with readings from the King James Version. It starts here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mk0eruzRsa0

The Epistle is Acts 2, verses 14 and 22-32. Click the triangular play button below to hear it read by one of our congregation, Charlotte Every. The text is available online here.

The psalm is Psalm 16. You can sing along with a video courtesy of Exeter Cathedral Choir here, and the text is available online here.

The Gospel reading is John 20.19-end. The text is available online here, and the text of Fr Jeremy’s sermon is available here:

The video of the gospel and sermon and rest of the service is available here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6BbI5L707Tg and concludes here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SY9BduB2jMs

Remote church is an experiment, an attempt to keep our community together while the Covid-19 virus disrupts our normal life. If you have suggestions on how to improve this, or would like to record part of next week’s service, please do let us know by commenting below or emailing info@stmaryshenley.org.uk.

Many thanks to those of you who attended last week’s Remote Church and left comments and suggestions for how it could be improved.

The Oxford Diocese have a livestreaming page which can be accessed at www.oxford.anglican.org and there will be a Diocesan Eucharist livestreamed this Sunday at 10 am. The service from Christchurch Cathedral can be found at https://www.chch.ox.ac.uk/oxfords-cathedral/online-worship.

Sacred Heart will be livestreaming Mass on Sunday morning (10.30 a.m.). See Sacred Heart’s website.
