Subject: Sunday worship! Are you game for this?
You will have heard that congregations are not going to be meeting on Sundays for a while, but this doesn’t mean you can’t worship. I contacted a few friends who are ministers who regularly live-stream their Sunday worship – and asked them if they were going to continue to provide worship material for folk who won’t get to the kirk.
I’m pleased to tell you many of them said “Of course!” in fact, I’ve copied what some of them said below which tells you where You can find their worship for you.
Good News to combat the bad!
And you can pass the Good News on to the people you know in your circle of Christian community…just forward the whole email on to them and be a missionary!
Hope you enjoy !

Yes, I am planning to stream 30 minute services of prayer and meditation starting this Sunday at 10.30am. The services will then remain on the system for a week until replaced by the next service. Go to www.kinnoullparishchurch.co.uk click on worship and follow the link. That is where the watch again feature can also be found. Hope you are your family are well,
Rev Robert Allan from Falkirk Trinity:
We normally stream live but with Sunday services now cancelled we obviously will not be streaming the usual service.
We are now turning our mind to alternatives that we can stream, so hopefully will get something up and running in the near future.
We have a log of previous services that folk can still see on our website under worship if that helps meantime.
Our website is:
Take care, and best wishes,
Rev Martin Fair – from Arbroath and this year’s new Moderator for a General Assembly that won’t be happening says:
St. Andrew’s Arbroath will continue to stream at 11am each Sunday and will have everything available on catch-up.

Thanks for your enquiry.
We are intending to continue, though still feeling our way with it a little.
Likely that we will either record or live stream each week. Music wise we plan to cut and paste previous hymns etc in order to provide as typical a feel as we can, since we won’t have a congregation to sing live, even if we did have instrumentalists.
Planning also to have daily reflection/ devotion during Holy Week.
Best way to find out what we have is on the website: www.claremontparishchurch.co.uk The “live stream” will have the most recent service, so folk do not HAVE to watch it at 10.30am on a Sunday morning.
Share as widely as you like/can. All welcome
Hope one of these suits your needs. Give it a try on Sunday and continue to praise God.
There are plenty of reasons to praise , and to pray for our communities, and our world.
One of our neighbouring ministers, Rev Scott Burton, has made this encouraging video and allowed us to share it on our site. You can link to his church’s website here. Scott will be using YouTube for his Sunday worship. Here he explains how to let another without internet access join in.
Here is a wee Facebook video from our previous minister, Rev. Cliff Acklam.
Here is a talk from Holy Trinity Brompton, the home of Alpha.
