    VIRTUAL CHURCH: EVENTS AND RESOURCES

    Daily Worship Each week we hope to publish a service of Daily Prayer for your use in private prayer and reflection. Daily Hope

    There is also a new service, Daily Hope, which is available 24 hours a day on 0800 804 8044. It has been set up particularly with those unable to join online church services during the period of restrictions in mind.


    Daily Worship

    You can download the Eucharist for November 29th, Advent Sunday, here and watch a video of the service below. The text contains the words so, if like me, you enjoy singing the hymns, you may wish to print out the text. We would be very grateful for comments on this revised arrangement for use during lockdown.


    Daily Worship for Thursday 26th to Saturday 28th November is here.


    Videos and images of the Remembrance service are on the Remembrance Sunday page.

    Harvest to Advent Prayer Card: a message from the Diocese

    The Diocese has produced a digital version of the Harvest to Advent Prayer Card which can be found at
    https://www.canterburydiocese.org/strategy/prayer/prayerresources/seasonal-prayers-for-renewal-mission/.

    It is still not possible to send out paper copies, but you may enjoy this pdf version, and find creative ways to use it in worship and prayer over the coming months.

    The card touches on themes connected to Harvest, of course, but also has some prayers and questions which connect to the Listening and Discerning conversations currently happening around the diocese. In a
    season reflecting and discerning seem more complex yet more critical than ever, we hope it will be both useful and heartening.

    Here are some ideas of how you might use it:

    • You are most welcome to forward it on to your congregation as an aid to prayer.

    • You may find it helpful to use the Collect or bullet points in gathered worship, or to pass them to those who lead Intercessions.

    • The picture was painted by Primrose with the themes of listening and discerning very much in mind. Looking at an image can be a helpful way of opening our hearts and minds to hear God and one another, so you could invite people to look at it for a few minutes before a Listening and Discernment Conversation.

    • If your church is open for private prayer, why not print the card out in larger format so that people can read it as they pray.

    We’ve put together some ideas for prayer activities which might help people engage with the Listening and Discerning Conversation. You can find them here:
