Worship

When our churches closed for Covid-19, the Church of England issued material for Morning and Evening Prayer at home. We distributed it with the April church magazines, and encouraged people to use it. We reopened our churches in July and August, then produced a Daily Prayer version which went out in the October magazine.We were then instructed to close again in November, and so we included Prayers to Remember in the magazine, including the Names of the Fallen to be remember on Remembrance Sunday. These are on the right - Allestree  and  Darley Abbey. December prayers only got into the Allestree Magazine. We re-opened in December, and were also worshipping weekly on Zoom. More weeks with our church buildings closed in 2021, and Lent Prayers went into the magazine. We reopened our church buildings on Easter Sunday.

BBC Radio broadcasts a Daily Service and Sunday Worship. Search for them on BBC Sounds https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds on your computer or use the BBC Sounds smartphone app. You can even listen on the radio – but you need LW for the Daily Service, at 9.45 am every weekday. Sunday Worship is at 8.10 am on FM. If you have a digital radio (DAB) you should be able to get both. BBC Radio 3 also broadcasts a service of Choral Evensong from different cathedrals and churches around the country at 3.30 pm every Wednesday, repeated at 3.00 pm the following Sunday.

The Church of England has launched Faith at Home, for families, https://www.churchofengland.org/faith-action/faith-home, and Daily Hope, a new phone line 0800 804 8044 which you can phone (at any time) for a recorded message of music, prayers and reflection - can you help pass this phone number on to any people who are not on the internet?
