Church of England Diocese of Lichfield Ilam

Alstonefield, Ilam and Wetton Churches YouTube Channel

15 Sep 2020, 6 p.m.

The YouTube Channel started during the Coronavirus outbrea.

It features Songs of Praise Services usually prepared, led, videoed, and edited by the Vicar, the Revd. John Austerberry, from Holy Cross Church Ilam.

The Service are for encouragement and support to our local Church goers and many other, who are not able to access their local church for Public Worship. The Services includes Hymns, Prayers, Bible readings, and a reflection for the day. They last between 30 and 40 minutes. 

Local Church goers contribute by recording readings and prayers for the services, from their own homes and gardens.

Rev John the Vicar records from his own garden and other venues, often using an ironing board as an altar. 

This has been chronicled by local artist Sue Prince with her painting of Rev John leading an Easter Day Service from his Vicarage Garden - see more on https://www.sueprinceartist.co.uk/ with her permission this image is used here.
