A connected church
- Minister's Letter

We live in a strange time, an unprecedented time of social isolation and suspension of normal activities. The panic buying in the supermarkets has shown human selfishness and insecurity, but the leaflets being posted through letter-boxes offering help for the vulnerable are a sign of unselfishness and generosity.

It is a strange time to be the church. We are so used to meeting together that we wonder what it is to be the church in our own homes, as it were. The church is oriented towards a physical presence, not just a separate building, but what we do together: praising God, confessing our sins, exchanging the peace, sharing bread and wine... It is a pity particularly at this time of year that we cannot celebrate Holy Week and Easter together. However, I have produced some leaflets for prayer and reflection for Palm Sunday, Holy Week etc., which we have put on the church website. Do make use of these in your own personal devotions.

The archbishops have written recently that the church, nationally, is making a growing range of digital resources available including weekly video broadcasts each Sunday; daily audio for prayer for the day and night prayer; webinars for churches; daily #LiveLent content; new mental health reflections; and apps and smart speaker skills. Lots of this content is also available in downloadable and printable formats. More will be added in the weeks and months ahead. The BBC is also offering services on television and radio and online which people can access and the national church is working closely with them.

Of course, not everyone has access to the internet, but a daily service is broadcast on Radio 4, Long Wave and Digital Audio (BBC Sounds), at 9.45am each day, and Choral Evensong is broadcast on Radio 3 at 3.30pm.

Although the churches are now closed for public worship and we cannot congregate at present yet still we can relate to each other and to God in an invisible way. I pray that in this time there may be a flourishing of prayer for each one of us. We have some other useful resources below.
