Online Worship: Service of the Word – 28 May

May 27, 2020

Ros & Chris Brett, Lay Readers in the Diocese of Argyll & The Isles, will lead a Service of the Word on 28 May at 6.30pm.

They are joined digitally by people from across the West of Scotland.  The hymn is played and sung by John & Christine McIntosh, from Holy Trinity, Dunoon; the Psalm is read by Hilary and Kennedy Fraser from St James the Less, Bishopbriggs; and the Intercessions are read by Alison Clark from St Paul’s, Rothesay.

You can download the liturgy at

The service can be joined at:

The broadcast will be available for all to access on YouTube and Facebook. Subtitles are available on both platforms, if selected by the user. Look for the CC icon at the bottom of the display screen on YouTube; on facebook, go to Settings, then Video, then select Always Show Captions.

The Scottish Episcopal Church website will also contain downloadable video and audio formats of the services, when these are ready.

We encourage people to distribute the video/audio recordings and the Liturgy widely within their own personal networks. In households with no internet or playback capacity at all, if people are simply given the opportunity to read the words of the Liturgy to themselves close to the appointed time, they will be praising God along with others in the Church.
