In these extraordinary times we have a variety of ways in which you can connect with St Andrew's Church in Feniton.

You can read this website. We'll let you know here how you can join in worhsip 'virtually' and what other changes we will be making so that we can all keep in touch even though we can't meet in person.

 

 Links to Rev Dave's video services can be found on our Service Times page: HERE

 

Radio and TV
    • The BBC are adapting their programming schedules in response to the current crisis.
    • Radio Devon:  8-8.30am A special service with the Archbishop of Canterbury 
  3.30pm Sunday service
  • Radio 4:  8.10-8.45am Sunday worship (as Radio Devon)
  • BBC1:    11.45-12.15  Sunday Worship 
 
Internet - lots available, including:
 
For EFP
  • I plan to record at home later today a 15+ min simple act of worship.
    • It will... use selections from the liturgy planned for tomorrow’s Escot church Mothering Sunday service - I’ve attached the service sheet.
    • embrace Mothering Sunday and the current situation.
    • include a short visual reflection.
    • include a ‘Communion' part.
  • On Sunday morning, it will be uploaded onto Facebook ('St Andrew’s Feniton’ page, 'EFP Churches’ group, and my own), onto the googledrive, and possibly the EFP website (depending on file size). Here is the link to the video:
  • You can either:
    • watch it at any time
    • at 10.30am, watch it with those who wish to do so 'together’ as a dispersed community.
  • If you wish to do this, I suggest you have with you:
    • a printed service sheet, ‘Prayer for a pandemic’, Bible readings if you wish (all attached and on the googledrive).
    • a candle - plus three further ones if you have them.
    • a flower.
    • some bread, and some wine or alternative - I won’t be consuming any in the video, but will do so tomorrow morning in the 10.30am slot.
  • It won’t include hymns! All your favourites will be on Youtube, though, so you could listen before or after if you wish - and sing along to your heart’s content...
  • A reminder that the googledrive is at https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1GZ9aby-pGhVCxc8Y_JgWT4PCXUZ79jhI?usp=sharing . If it's helpful to have a single link to the video, I will email round a link directly to this once uploaded - watch your inbox.
This will be very amateur! It is a first attempt, and we will learn as we go along what will be most helpful on Sundays - we are in uncharted territory.
 
p.s. re Facebook - 
  • The 'EFP Churches' Facebook group is now up and running, at https://www.facebook.com/groups/506680043324026/ .
  • This is likely to be a very helpful shared church 'space’. 
  • If you’re not yet on Facebook, do consider it, and let me know via Facebook or email if you join it, to ensure you can be invited to the EFP group.
 
However you mark Sunday tomorrow - whether you are alone or with others, whether marking Mothering Sunday specially or not - the God of love, hope and strength will be with you.
 
God bless,
David
