Iona Morning Worship, 26th July

An Order of Service for Iona Morning Worship for this coming Sunday can be found here.

BBC Radio 4’s Sunday Worship, 8.10am – Great is Thy Faithfulness.

A service preparing for a “Virtually Keswick” Convention, taking place in the last week of July. The theme is hope. At this time of great uncertainty, in the midst of a global pandemic, there is hope in Jesus Christ. Preacher, the Revd Dr Chris Wright, takes the text of a well-known hymn, “Great is thy faithfulness; morning by morning new mercies I see…” which comes form the middle of the darkest book of the Bible – Lamentations. The biblical poet describes the sacking of the city of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar, king of the mighty empire of Babylon. Yet out of utter despair comes hope… such is the character of God. 

BBC 1’s Songs of Praise is being broadcast on Sunday at 1.15pm. Crosby Beach.

The Revd Kate Bottley is on Crosby Beach, celebrating the 15th anniversary of the iron men sculptures created by artist Antony Gormley. Kate speaks to local Christians who been inspired by the statues to create their own artworks, including paintings, photography and performance.

James Lusted meets one of the founding members of Crossbeats, a Liverpool-based band credited with helping to bring contemporary Christian music to the UK back in the 1960s. Kate travels just along the coast to Formby, hoping to see the rare red squirrel. She visits the prayer centre there, right in the heart of the National Trust conservation area.

With worship and hymns from across Merseyside and beyond (all recorded before the closure of church buildings).
