Worship Resources

At this difficult time when the Church is not able to gather for worship in the customary way, it's important that we continue to pray and worship at home and to explore new ways of being the Church. We hope the resources provided on this page may be of some help to you, and we will update the page as appropriate.

NEW ! A Home Study Course for Pentecost (or anytime!) : 'The Empowering Spirit'

Fr Trevor writes:   This 6 part course explores the role of the Holy Spirit in our lives as Christians. It will be of parrticular interest to those who are exploring what it means to be more 'Charismatic' or 'Spirit filled' in prayer and worship. Although designed for a small group, the course can also be studied by individuals and each of the sessions is easy to follow.  You can take the course at your own pace, either using a session a day for the week following Pentecost, a session a week or whatever works best for you. If you do the course, do let me know what you make of it and how you get on.
