Church of England Diocese of Lincoln West Deeping

An Invitation from Colin at West Deeping to Join an All Age Service ‘at home’ this Sunday at 11:00am

Dear Friends,

We would like to invite you to join our All Age Service ‘at home’ this Sunday at 11:00am using Zoom. The service will include a short drama about the ‘Ascension of Jesus’ (speaking parts have already been cast!). Father Aran will introduce the service and Padre Stewart Shaw RAF will take the sermon and help us reflect on how the theme applies to us in these extraordinary times. At the end of the service, we will be playing a short form of ‘The Blessing’ (See Footnote).

The service sheet and words for the songs will be on your screen to follow during the service. If you would prefer, please print the attached service which includes all you need with prayer responses in bold font.

Howard Jones is our host for the ‘meeting’. The Zoom joining details are:

Footnote: ‘The Blessing’ video has been produced by over 60 churches that got together to produce a blessing set to music to sing over the nation at this time. The recording has gone viral, with well over 2.5 million viewings and many copies. We thought you would like to hear a short-form version. If you would like to hear the whole thing, go to:
