From March 2020 to August 2021, we recorded over 80 services, with a new service available nearly every week. Those services are still available to watch and you will find the links to them here
You’ll find a links below to a couple of other recordings offering you the opportunity to sing popular hymns or spend a peaceful time with prayers and readings.
A Gentle Journey isn’t a service – it’s a selection of prayers and reflections accompanied by restful music and tranquil images. Lasting just over 15 minutes, we hope that you will find peace and relaxation, comfort and inspiration – a time of quiet contemplation as you listen to these words of praise.
During the Covid lockdowns we made other resources available under the Virtual Vicar, such as prayers for those who were ill, prayers to chare with children, morning & evening daily individual worship. If you would like to access any of that material, you will find it here.
