The Church of England has prayer resources you might find helpful to use at home during this time of lock-down. These can be found on www.churchofengland.org under 'Coronavirus (Covid-19) liturgy and prayer resources'.
If you are familiar with "Zoom" (a video conferencing facility) and would like to join us for parish morning prayer at 9.15 am on Mondays and Wednesdays you would be very welcome. Please phone Dick on 07753116621 if you would like to and/or need help in getting set up.
The Archbishop of Canterbury has launched a free national phone line as a simple new way to bring worship and prayer into people's homes whilst church buildings are closed because of the virus.
"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. 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.
We hope this information is helpful and useful at this difficult time.
Keep well and stay safe.
God bless you all.
Revd. Dick Bradshaw
A simple order of service can be found by clicking on the button below. Please try to use this as near to 10am as possible so that we can all be worshiping together despite being in our own homes.
The Celebrate Service is held on the first Sunday of each month, in the Priestman Hall of St. Andrew's Church. We meet informally in 'cafe style' relaxed atmosphere with tables and chairs so people can chat and get to know one another. There is no Holy Communion at this service. We sing modern worship songs using backing tracks and use the overhead projector for visuals, film clips and words for the songs. The services are put together by teams of people from the worship group at St Andrew's (everyone is welcome to join). Refreshments are served from 9.30 am and the service starts at 10 am and lasts approximately 45 minutes with more refreshments available after the service. A warm welcome awaits you if you'd like to join us!
Gather2Gether is different kind of meeting which is held on the 2nd Sunday of every month at 6.30 pm at All Saints' Church, Fulwell, Sunderland, SR6 0DG. We explore our faith, ministry, healing, read the Bible, pray, encourage each other, watch short film clips and much more! A warm welcome awaits you so please come and join us!
