A Service of the Word recorded by members of our congregation in their own homes while St John's is temporarily closed due to the Covid-19 Coronavirus pandemic 2020.

The broadcast starts with 15 minutes of music from 10:30am to give everyone chance to settle down and sort out any technical problems, and the service itself starts at 10:45am.

St John's has been closed for the safety of our community and congregation since March 2020 due to the Covid-19 Coronavirus outbreak and subsequent UK lockdown. During this time, people from our congregations have contributed pieces, in video, audio or written format and they have been edited together into a weekly service for people to watch in their own home.

Though lockdown is now gradually being lifted, it is important that when our churches and buildings reopen, they are able to do so whilst meeting safety guidelines set down by the Government, set alongside the risk that would be caused by the current level of community transmission of the virus, both in the UK generally and at local levels. As a result, it has been decided that St John's Church remains closed for public worship until a later date, and as as such, our online services will continue.

Our music group have each recorded part of the worship songs in their homes and each of these recordings have been combined to make it (hopefully!) sound just as though they were all in the same room together.

The traditional music has been recorded for The Church of England by the Choir of St Martin-in-the-fields in much the same way. We've tried to include traditional and modern aspects to appeal across our congregations and beyond.

We look forward to the date in the coming weeks when St John's will be able to open again. Until then, we hope our congregation - and all those who join us for these broadcasts - will find hope and peace from the words of these services.
