The worship for 5 July 2020 can be found in several videos:

The preacher at this week’s service is the Bishop of Glasgow and Galloway, the Rt Rev Kevin Pearson, who took up this role on Wednesday this week. Bishop Kevin and his wife Elspeth will join the online coffee hour and will be in conversation with the Provost there at 12 noon. Details of how to join have been sent to all on the Cathedral online mailing list. To sign up for this mailing list, please go to the online sign-up form.
The celebrant at this week’s service is the Provost, who conducts the service from the Cathedral. Other voices come from members of the congregation, some of whom are self-isolating at home. The Vice Provost, the Rev Canon Oliver Brewer-Lennon, assists with the service. David Nassar reads from the Bible and Pat Bennett leads the Intercessions. Magnus Walker sings the music for the Ordinary, a setting by Malcolm Archer. The music at communion is sung by the Vice Provost. The hymn, played by the Cathedral’s Director of Music, is ‘Praise to the Lord, the Almighty the King of Creation’ (Lobe den Herren).
This week’s photographs feature some of the places that Bishop Kevin will come to know well during his time as our bishop. During the Gloria, we go doon the watter; during the Sanctus and Benedictus, there are some photographs from the south of the Diocese.
