Worship Resources

Just because services in our churches are currently suspended because of Coronavirus COVID-19, it doesn't mean that we stop being church, and cannot still worship together.

The following are just some of the resources that are available to all of us:

Television programs

Sunday:                                   Songs of Praise at 1.15pm on BBC 1

Radio programs

Daily:                                       Prayer for the Day at 5.43am on Radio 4

                                                Daily Service at 9.45am on Radio 4 Longwave and DAB

(The Daily Service is available on a Radio 4 DAB side channel which is automatically made available about a minute before the programme begins. After tuning to Radio 4 DAB, select "Daily Service" (from your display) with the tuning wheel and press the selector button. On some radios the side channel can be stored on a preset button)

Weekly:  Sunday’s                  Sunday Worship at 8.10am on Radio 4
