Current Sunday Worship
Whilst there are no services at St James’ or St Mark’s we are still encouraging Sunday worship in two ways –
10am Morning Service
Each Sunday shortly before 10am we will upload a pre-recorded service to our YouTube channel. Service sheets will be downloadable so you can join in the responses and/or sing along with the hymns. Here is the latest Service –
Sunday 24th May 2020 - Ascension - The Service Sheet can be downloaded here
7pm Candlelit Evening Prayer
In these uncertain times we are holding on to God and trusting in Him/Her. By us all joining together in prayer at the same time each Sunday evening (between 7.00 and 8.00 pm) and lighting a candle* as we do so we connect ourselves to God and each other. We can pray for all those affected by the pandemic, for any other needs and for ourselves.
Here are two downloadable prayer resources to help you:
One is a list of prayer topics
The other a selection of individual prayers
Pick and mix with them as you wish, to make the time meaningful.
"God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear..."
*Safety note - please take all necessary fire precautions when using a lit candle. Ensure you remain with the lit candle at all times, and do not leave it to burn if you leave the room. Ensure there are no fabrics or materials such as curtains near the candle. Feel free to use an electric ‘candle’ instead, if you would rather.Worship
