Stars of Hope & Rhythm of Life

Our live All Age worship for Epiphany was at 10am at St Andrews today, but those of you who could not attend might still find our activity helpful as we begin a new year, so we have made a short video at home to allow you to reflect at your own time on the idea of finding balance as God calls us on into the New Year.

Service for Epiphany – 3 Jan 2021

The home-spun videos (okay, church-spun videos for people saying their prayers at home) continues, with our Epiphany Service, containing a choir, a viola solo, an organ voluntary, a person reading the Lesson for the first time, yours truly standing on a chair, and a relentless number of errors – but it is shown below for you to watch – finally, after hours of uploading!

There are four hymns too, and a hymn sheet, which is available here:  Epiphany Service 2020 – hymns

 

The Advent Calendar at Christmas

Many folk say that Christmas starts with the service from King’s College, Cambridge. Now we have a new tradition: Christmas starts with opening the last windows on the on-line Advent Calendar – found at

A very happy Christmas to everyone – from the folk at Boroughbridge Churches

The Longest Night Service

The Longest Night Service is for people who would love to hear again the readings and the music surrounding the Christmas story, but who find it really difficult to come into church – not just because of the Covid restrictions, but for any reason.  It is a quiet reflective service filmed at St James’s Church, Boroughbridge, with readings and hymns you can either listen to or join in.

Carol Sing-along

A last minute idea for those who have been missing carol singing…

You may remember that on VE Day some of us stood in our front gardens and sung together. This Christmas Eve, there is a national movement to ring bells at 6pm. If you are planning to join in with this, you might also like to follow this by joining with your neighbours and the people in your street (from your own drives/gardens) in a few Christmas songs, the songsheet can be downloaded here: christmas_eve_songsheet
