|PRESBYTERIANS IN THE PANDEMIC – WORSHIP AND WORK ARE ONE
It will be one year since the pandemic changed our schedules and worship lives in mid March. Many of the health care heroes of the pandemic are Presbyterian.
If you have health care workers in your congregation, please send their pictures to email@example.com by Sunday March 7th. Please state the individual’s name, their profession (nurse, doctor, respiratory therapist etc.), and their home congregation. If possible, ask them to submit a photo from work – wearing whatever PPE they normally wear. These photos will be combined and shared on the presbytery website. They will also be made available to all churches within the presbytery who wish to include this short video clip celebrating Presbyterians in the pandemic on Sunday March 14th (or any Sunday after).
|PRESBYTERY OF LONDON POST EASTER WORSHIP RESOURCE
Shelly is volunteering to co-ordinate a presbytery wide “virtual” service for use within the presbytery. It will be a complete worship service that involves all of the clergy of the presbytery who are interested in offering leadership. Each “part” will be filmed in our own churches. Clergy are asked to let Shelly know by February 28th if they would like to take part, and if they wish to just provide an “audio” recording of their voice, or a video recording. Shelly will then forward you your “part” for the service to you with a deadline of when it needs to be submitted. (ie. a prayer, scripture reading, call to worship etc.). This service will then be available for all churches in the presbytery for use any Sunday after Easter. It will provide an opportunity for us to “see in each other’s churches”, and to meet the various clergy of the presbytery. It will also provide a Sunday of a little less work for clergy who may be getting a little “zoomed out.”
