The worship for 3 May 2020 can be found in several videos:
- Three videos that form a service of Holy Communion
- Videos for members of the Young Church and their households
- A candle lighting liturgy for use in the home
This week’s worship focuses on the gospel reading in which Jesus repeatedly uses images of a shepherd and sheep to describe the relationship between God and God’s people.
As access to the cathedral building is restricted, this week’s worship takes the form of a house eucharist hosted by the members of the Companions of Our Lady and St Mungo, Sister Helena and Sister AJ, from their own home. Other voices come from members of the congregation, some of whom are self-isolating at home. This Sunday’s sermon is preached by the Rev Matthew Little. Jim McKillop reads the Gospel, Franny Mawditt leads the Intercessions, and the organ voluntary, March from Richard III by William Walton, is played by Frikki Walker. Magnus Walker (tenor) sings the Gloria and Sanctus from a setting of the mass by Anthony Greening. Music at communion is ‘The King of Love My Shepherd Is’ which is also sung by Magnus Walker.
