For the sixth Sunday after Pentecost the Rt Revd Anne Dyer, Bishop of Aberdeen & Orkney leads a Celebration of the Eucharist from St Mary’s Episcopal Church, Carden Place, in the Diocese of Aberdeen and Orkney. The service will begin at 11am.

Bishop Anne is joined digitally by the Rev Mike Blake, Assistant Curate at St Andrew’s, Alford as Deacon as well as Jane Blake and Christopher Gospel who are the readers.

John Rutter’s ‘For the Beauty of the Earth’ is sung by Elizabeth Poobalan and Sam Paul (Head Chorister and Lay Clerk from the Choir of St. Andrew’s Cathedral, Aberdeen) with Director of Music Christopher Cromar on the piano. The organist is Michael Bawtree.

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

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.
