We have stopped meeting for Sunday worship from 17 March 2020. This is in response to the Government’s guidance around non-essential contact and the Archbishop’s advice to suspend all public worship until further notice.
So what are we going to do while we cannot meet for Sunday services?
We want to encourage you to continue worshipping on Sundays.
We want to encourage you to continue praying throughout the week.
These two activities will energise our service and witness.
How will we do this?
- On Sundays:
- We will Facebook Live stream a 10.30am act of worship. This will include a few songs, some news, a reading, prayers and a talk (which will also be recorded and uploaded). Please like our page on Facebook and click to receive notifications – please encourage others to do the same! Click here for more information including a guide of how to find us on Facebook.
- For those unable to join us on Facebook, we will join in prayer at 9am across our homes. Though apart, we will provide a printed service sheet that will unite our prayers. This will be a simple act of worship involving prayers and a few Bible readings. Please get in touch if you’d like to join this.
- During the week:
- We can provide material for morning or evening prayer. Some of us at St Luke’s are already doing this, though we vary the times we pray. Perhaps this season of self-isolation and shutdowns is the ideal time to discover a pattern of prayer for home.
- Our 9am, now at 8.45am, Wednesday prayer meeting will go online – live-streamed on Facebook.
We have started a podcast to support people at home, All Gospel No Germs.
If you would like a Bible or some help with how to read it, or how to pray, please get in touch! We’d love to help.
