Ascensiontide Celebration, 24th May

An Order of Service for Spiritual Communion for 24th May can be found here:


BBC Radio 4’s Sunday Worship, 8.10am – Living Well while waiting. Catherine Fox and the Bishop of Sheffield, Pete Wilcox, reflect on living well during this time of waiting. For people yearning for things to be ‘normal’ again it seems like there’ll be a long time to wait. Many people’s plans for this summer, including weddings and ordinations, have been cancelled, so what can we do to stay positive in this period of continued hoping and uncertainty? The Miraculous Catch of Fish (John 21:1-14) leads them to suggest that old plans and hopes can be transformed by Jesus.


BBC 1’s Songs of Praise is being broadcast on Sunday at 1.15pm.  Islands of Faith – Katherine Jenkins introduces uplifting stories of faith amidst spectacular scenery as she looks back to when Songs of Praise explored islands around our beautiful coastline. She begins by looking back on her visit to Caldey Island off the coast near Tenby in South Wales. One of the monks there, Br David, tells her about the rich history of the island that stretches back over 1,400 years.


There’s also another chance to see Aled Jones setting sail with Christian sailors off the coast of the Isle of Wight to find out why being out on the ocean brings them closer to God.
