We’re streaming and prerecording services while church buildings are closed. We post a service here at 9.30 every Sunday morning, and at some other times. Keep your eye on this page for live streams and recordings, you can use it to catch up on past services. Services will go live at the advertised time.

Sunday 5th July

We’re back in church again and there will be a service at 9.30 am. You are welcome to attend but you’ll need to book a place

The full order of service is here for you to download and bring with you (digitally on your device or printed).

The service will be live streamed to our Facebook page (you don’t need a Facebook account to view that – only to interact with it – ignore any signup warnings). It will also be recorded and available here and on Facebook when the service has finished.

Tiffany’s Licensing

Our curate, Tiffany Jackson, will begin her curacy today when she is licensed by the Bishop of Hereford, the Rt Rev Richard Jackson at Hereford Cathedral. Her licencing enables her to begin her ministry among us, as ordinations have been delayed until September due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The service will be live streamed at 4.00 pm on the Diocesan Facebook page. You will also be able to watch it there after the event.

We welcome Tiffany, her husband Stephen, and their son Liam with joy, and pray that her curacy will be a blessing to her and to us.

Live Family Service for the Ross Parishes – 10.45 on Zoom – All are welcome to join us for family worship. Please email Chris Blanchard in advance if you would like to attend, to receive an email link to the service with info about how to prepare and what to bring.

We will be imagining and exploring Jesus’ parable “The kingdom of God is like a party…” through songs and actions, story telling and prayers. Exploring the Bible and praying using imagination is an approach that Christians of all ages and backgrounds have used for centuries. You can also listen to a guided meditation on the same passage here:   https://taketime.org.uk/themed-meditations/103-the-great-banquet/   You might like to try it. Do ask Caroline Pascoe or Chris Blanchard if you’d like to know more.

Sunday 14th June – Music Sunday

This Sunday in June has been kept as Music Sunday for many years. Our morning service (9.30 am) picks up partially on the theme in harmony with nature.

The service is heavily choral but the order of service (below) contains all the music and you’re invited to join in at home. There are 64 pages so a second device is recommended (or a printer with a lot of ink and paper). More information and many rehearsal tracks here.

You can join the RSCM service at 6.00 HERE.
