The worship for 19 July 2020 can be found in two videos:
- A Communion Service led by Bishop Kevin from St Mary’s Cathedral
- Videos for members of the Young Church and their households
This week the Eucharist takes the form of a service led by Bishop Kevin from the altar of St Mary’s Cathedral in Glasgow. This is the service which that is being offered for the whole of the Scottish Episcopal Church today. It has been prepared by a member of staff of the General Synod Office in Edinburgh – which is why it is in a slightly different format to our usual services and also why it will not be available until 11 am on Sunday.
The readers are Anne Jones, Marion Noble from the diocesan office and the Provost, the intercessions are led by Robert Mawditt. Music comes from Frikki Walker, Magnus Walker and Rosamond Thomas.

Re-opening St Mary’s
The Provost and Vice Provost have begun a series of conversations about how to try to re-open the cathedral for face-to-face worship. This will involve the Leadership Group, the Vestry, the Compliance Group and many individuals who will have roles to play in bringing this about. The guidelines on re-opening churches were published on Tuesday this week and can be read here:
This is not a trivial task and is particularly difficult for larger congregations. St Mary’s normally has around 200 people present for worship on Sundays. The number of people who can be seated at 2 meter distancing in the pews is 44. This gives some idea of how complicated re-opening will be.
A video has been prepared by the Scottish Episcopal Church giving some idea of what can be expected once churches do re-open. This is worth watching and can be seen here:
