There will be no services in church during the lockdown but we will always have a worship offering here on our website and provide links to the Diocesan online worship and the Church of England ‘at home’ offering. The services for 22nd November are posted here and the service for 29th November (Advent Sunday) will be posted on Sunday morning. Our online worship includes Bible readings, a reflection and prayers for the day together with some lovely musical offerings. This offering is in the ‘Services’ section of the website so simply come online on Sunday morning and click on the ‘Services’ tab to participate or click the ‘online worship’ title below to go straight to the latest service. You are able to access all online Sunday services in the ‘Services’ section of this website.
Oxford Diocese Online Worship:
The festival of Christ the King stands at a crossroads, with one liturgical year behind us and the promise of a new year ahead, beginning with Advent next week, which will bring a new energy as we prepare our hearts for Christmas.
This service of Christ the King borrows liturgical elements from previous Church at Home services and from Diocesan school assemblies, beginning with the very first Call to Worship from March 2020.
Let us be mindful of the words in that call: ‘I lay at the foot of the Cross all my fears.’ Those words begin our service. They echo as true today as they did in March, as they have done for centuries, and will echo true into the new liturgical year and beyond.

A service of Prayer for the Nation

The service, marking Christ The King, is led by the Bishop of Durham, with contributions from the Dean of Durham.
