Trinity Sunday - 7th June 2020
Here we are - every preacher's favourite Sunday - Trinity Sunday. That said there are two excellent sermons on offer this week from the clergy of this benefice. One, from Douglas, is in print and available below. The other is on video and will be included in our online service, available from 8.30am on Sunday morning from the benefice at this link.
From Monday there will also be services of Prayer During the Day and Compline for Ordinary Time available on the Benefice Website.
As always there are lots of other online services available, including from the Diocese of Oxford and national HQ. If you are in contact with people who are not online, please do pass on the numbers for the initiatives from the central Church of England and the Diocese of Oxford:
'Daily Hope' offers music, prayers and reflections as well as full worship services from the Church of England at the end of a telephone line on 0800 804 8044 (further details can be found here.)
The Oxford Diocese line for those unable to watch services online is reached via 01865 920930 and, once connected, dial 0 for the full version of the service, or dial 1 for a short version. However - PLEASE NOTE - this line is not free, standard call rates apply. Please remember there will be a few seconds of silence before the service starts.
Also included below - along with the Weekly Sheet - we have a sheet with notes on the Saints' days of the week.
The Diocese are also providing lots of resources and help, much of which is highlighted in their weekly news mailing, available here.
I am still hoping to broaden the input to our worship. If any of you can help and would be willing to record bits of a service - preferably video but audio would be fine - and then email them to me then I will do the editing. There is a lot to include for Trinity Sunday next week, so if you can offer a reading or a prayer, please let me know (email@example.com) - it will feel more like benefice worship if more are involved in leading parts of it as we haven had in our worship week in, week out.
Please do still encourage others to keep in touch with what is going on by signing up to these updates – just cut and paste the link to them in an email:
Very importantly, if there are any people who you know would like a hard copy of this then please print it off for them or let me know, and I’ll take care of it (whilst keeping physically distant!)
For now, as always, all the best, God bless, and keep safe
