MANY readers have contacted us to express their gratitude at still receiving the Church Times each week. We are pleased that it is proving such a resource for so many during the pandemic.
We have also been publishing articles exclusively for our website and iPhone and iPad apps each day, which all subscribers can access.
They include an article by Anne Bennett on how mutual aid groups are helping people to obtain necessities such as shopping and medicines; advice from Jonathan Gebbie, a licensed lay minister at St Mary’s, Stoke Newington, on how to run a service on Zoom that does not descend into chaos; and a review by our TV critic, Gillean Craig of the online streaming of Anglican liturgy which has become so widespread. There’s also a reflection from the Holy Land by the Dean of St George’s, the Very Revd Richard Sewell, on celebrating Easter in a deserted Jerusalem; and Katharine Dell examines Covid-19 in light of Old Testament pandemics.
The website and apps also include regular breaking news stories. And, of course, you can read all of the content in each week’s paper there.
Another “Lift Up Your Hearts” is available here in A4 format for easy download, printing, and distribution to friends, neighbours, and fellow parishioners.
