The worship for 24 May 2020 can be found in several videos:
- Three videos that form a service of Holy Communion
- An organ voluntary
- Videos for members of the Young Church and their households
- A song for Young Church, the young choristers (and everyone else) to learn
- A candle lighting liturgy for use in the home
- An invitation to provide something for next week’s worship
- A podcast – Health, Mental Health and Climage Change
As access to the cathedral building is restricted, this week’s worship takes the form of a house eucharist hosted by the Provost from his 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 Vice Provost, the Rev Canon Oliver Brewer-Lennon. Robert and Diane Elliot read from the Bible, Sister AJ Whybrow leads the Intercessions, and the organ voluntary, Adagio from Suite modale, Op 43 (Flor Peeters), was recorded by Steven McIntyre on the organ at Dunblane Cathedral a few weeks ago. Magnus Walker sings the Gloria, Sanctus and Benedictus from a setting by Malcolm Archer accompanied by Frikki Walker. Music at communion is the Allegro from a Telemann A Minor Sonanta played by Les and Rona MacLeod.
In our readings at this time, the disciples receive their great commission to begin from Jerusalem – the place where they are – and move outwards to Judea, Samaria and the ends of the earth. The images in our worship this week begin where the cathedral is located. They also include several maps.
These include …
