Let's Keep Worshipping

While we may not be able to meet together in the church building, we are still able to pray and worship.  Below are a number of resources that you may find helpful for adults and children. 

As a parish we are going to be live streaming a service each week.  More information to follow!

The Oxford Diocese have produced some wonderful prayer resources for adults and children which may help when we struggle to know how to pray.  

You can also find morning and evening prayer which you may like to do by yourself or with your family.

Each week and also on principal holy days the Oxford Diocese will be live streaming a service at 10am which you may want to watch. The Church of England have a lot of resources to help at this time and will be live streaming services too.

Some daily readings 

Lectio365 is a very popular daily meditation.  It only takes 10 minutes but helps to settle down the anxious mind.  You can also download the app from the site and do it on your phone.  

Another site which helps with prayer is How to Pray. This is a 21-day prayer plan which will help during our 3 weeks isolation! 

Bible in One Year is a wonderful way of reading or listening to scripture.  It has a commentary by Nicky Gumble to help reflect on the passages.

CHILDREN

There are several great resources and websites for children.  As we know at UnitedKidz@play music is a great way of not only keeping the kids active but also praising God at the same time.  Some of the youtube sites we have used in the past are: Doug Horley, Hillsong Kids   

The song all of the kids loves is Our God is a Great big God! Why not record the children singing some of the songs and send them in for our Facebook page to Louise to cheer us all up. 

We will be regularly uploading things onto our parish Facebook and St Eligius facebook page to encourage us all during these times.

Nicky and Becky Drake are doing informal services from there front room on a Wednesday and Saturday @ 4.  It’s a great way to get everyone doing actions regardless of your age.
