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:
Sunday: Songs of Praise at 1.15pm on BBC 1
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)
