This page has the online worship offering of St Mary’s Cathedral for 22 March 2020
The worship can be found in four videos – three that form a service and one which is a video for members of the Young Church and their families.
The service is led by the Rev Canon Oliver Brewer-Lennon in church. Other voices come from members of the congregation, some of whom are self-isolating at home. The preacher, from his home is the Provost, the Very Rev Kelvin Holdsworth. Our Acting Bishop, the Most Rev Mark Strange joins us to give us a blessing.
A pdf transcript of the service can also be downloaded:

Many thanks to the Rev Rob Warren, the Rector of All Saints’ Church in Rome for inspiration and encouragement in the planning of this worship.
This was a collaborative effort from a number of people including the Very Rev Kelvin Holdsworth, the Rev Canon Oliver Brewer-Lennon, Steven McIntyre (organ), Rosemary Hannah & Sophie Agrell (young church), Petko Marinov (Gospel reading) and Sister AJ Whybrow & Sister Helena Barrett (Intercessions), the Most Rev Mark Strange (blessing) and Tim Haynes (many of the photographs).
Many thanks to all who contributed, even though they were unable to understand what the finished Act of Worship would be like.
