Church of England Diocese of Carlisle Farlam

Church by Social Media

30 May 2020, midnight


With public worship closed down, Edward the vicar has been launched on a steep learning curve into the world of social media! Videos of brief talks and some services have been produced. Thank you to all those who have participated and especially to Lizzie Johnsen, who has been the vicar’s techno tutor!

You can view church information and various videos which have been posted on the vicar’s Facebook page. NB this is primarily a work venture not a social one!

If you are online but not on Facebook you can view the videos by going on You Tube (search ‘Edward Johnsen’). There is also a link to these on the Farlam Church website (a huge thank you to Ann Freer for all she does managing the site). If you are on email and would like to kept informed of videos etc as they come out, do email the vicar on [email protected] so you can be added to the list of those who are notified and given the link as things are put out. We will also give you the links for the more traditional and fuller Sunday services which are being put out by Lanercost Priory.

We have also been offering a Not-on-Sunday ‘Sunday School’ on Zoom. So far 14 families have participated from across six local parishes. Again, let me know if there are any more takers out there…
