October 8, 2020

The Rev David Gordon, interim Priest at St Paul’s Cathedral, Dundee, in the Episcopal Diocese Of Brechin leads a service of Evening Prayer for the Commemoration of the Rt Rev Alexander Penrose Forbes, a former Bishop of Brechin between 1847-75.

The service can be joined from 6.30pm at:

Susie Schofield is the reader, Alice Simpson joins Rev David and leads the intercessions; and the current Bishop of Brechin, the Rt Rev Andrew Swift reflects on the life of Bishop Forbes in the service.

In addition to the online resources, there is a telephone service to allow those who do not have internet access to listen to the service of worship by telephone. The facility is free of charge for anyone calling by landline or mobile phone from within the UK. It will be helpful if those who have online access to worship continue to use that method rather than using the telephone line, to avoid unnecessary additional cost incurred by the GSO, and we would also appreciate help in reaching non-internet users who are unable to see this information.

Anyone who would like full details of how to access the telephone line, in order to share them with someone who needs this service should email AidanS@scotland.anglican.org.
