Altogether Not Together

We may not all be able to come together as the people of God (1 Peter 2.9) to worship and pray during these difficult times but that doesn’t mean we can’t be together in other ways.

The Church of England invite us to join their virtual services at Church online and Exeter Cathedral will also be recording Sunday services.

Many other churches now also stream their services online, such as St Andrew’s Cullompton.  This means that not only can you see a service from a church near you but also that you can join virtually with family and friends at their local church, wherever that might be.

Of course, church is not just for Sundays and the above have the advantage in that you can catch up on them at other times too.  Canterbury Cathedral, for example, have daily services of Morning and Evening Prayer available online, as well as their Sunday services.

There are also other online resources available such as that from  the Bible Society for reading and exploring the Bible.  The Church of England has a number of different prayer resources and there are other daily devotionals available, such as Lectio 365, written by leaders of the 24-7 Prayer movement.
