Sunday 25th April Service on YouTube

Hello again with tomorrow’s worship information (plus info on the next few weeks at the end)
We continue ‘The Jesus story’ theme, with tomorrow’s worship under the heading: ‘Healed – by the man who you crucified, but whom God raised from the dead’. The question put out to you was  ‘Have you been healed by Jesus?’, and honestly what you’ll hear is wonderful.

Here’s the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ne9bh7PJYho

It’s 44 minutes long this week, and will be posted at 9.30 am tomorrow.

And we have a short service at Church at 10.30 am tomorrow and as I said last week we are not running a booking system for now as numbers seem OK for our ‘Covid’ capacity of 35.

For children, Virtual Sunday School is back – here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=462mi2A8cEA It looks great fun as ever.

For youth, Eden St Luke’s youth worker is back with one of his very special videos…. this week on the question: Is it bad that I don’t feel or experience God like others do? Here’s the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JEF6YTO6CV8

INFORMATION ON THE NEXT FEW SUNDAYS (for clarity’s sake!)

  • Sunday 2nd May – there will be a simple service in church at 10.30 am led by Clare Hudson. There will be no recorded service on line as Margaret and I are having a Sunday off (for the first time since Christmas)

Sunday 9th May – will be back to what we have been doing for many weeks, with the main worship pre-recorded online to YouTube, and a short service in church at 10.30 am

Ascension Sunday May 16th (what a day for this to happen!) – if PCC give the go ahead this week, we will be welcoming all who want to come back to church. We haven’t yet agreed how many services, times, whether you’ll need to book etc. but will obviously let you know what is decided! We hope to live-stream the worship so those still at home can view it as it happens, but don’t yet know if it’ll be recorded as well. Pre-recorded services would then come to an end. Pray it will be possible and wonderful – the stars from Christmas are still hanging as we felt it would be good to have them there for the day we returned as a sign of Hope in Christ for our new beginnings..

Sunday 18th April Service on YouTube

Hello to all for this beautiful Sunday (I think it’s going to be anyway!)
Our worship tomorrow is on the theme ‘You are witnesses of all these things…’, very interesting again!

Here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xtdcrCbQob4
It’s 48 minutes long this week. As usual, it will be posted at 9.30 am tomorrow.

It seems a long road doesn’t it – but at least we are starting to think and pray about being back in church with everyone May 16th onwards! – we’ll finally be deciding at our PCC at the end of April.

If you are coming to our short service at Church at 10.30 am tomorrow just to say it will be an Easter Communion again. Our Covid safe capacity is 35 but we seem OK numbers-wise without running a booking system for now.

For children,Virtual Sunday School are having a week off this week (they must be tired too, new baby and all).

And for youth, well there’s no input/teaching video, but there is a really fun one of those drawing videos with Eden, Mikali and Kieren – see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-hKd95tEj3Es

My love and prayers in Christ

Sunday 11th April Service on YouTube

Hello to all for this Sunday – the 2nd one of Easter
Our worship tomorrow is under the heading ‘Afraid, and not believing’ and covers the famous Easter story of ‘doubting’ Thomas.
We have Archdeacon Adrian speaking again, which is really great!

Here’s the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_X4ryaeBX64     It’s 46 minutes long this week .

It will be posted at 9.30 am as usual. This online service continues as our main act of worship until Ascension Sunday May 16th, when we hope as many as can will be able to return to physically be at Church.
We are, however, holding short services at Church at 10.30 am at the moment for those who want to come. We have a safe capacity of 35 but after last week we don’t think we need to run a booking system for now.

For children,here’s the link to Virtual Sunday School for this week:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vpyz_LCfkDw

And for youth, it doesn’t seem there’s anything from St Luke’s this week as Eden and his helpers are probably taking a post-Easter break themselves

My love and prayers

Robert’s YouTube reflection for Easter Saturday

Dear all,

Here is my reflection for Holy Saturday, the day of tears, the day of in
between times.

Please note (I don’t say) the last quote if from Hebrews 12 (v 1 & 2 I
do say)

Please also not I won’t be doing reflections next week. After that,
under the hand of the Holy Spirit, I will review whether to carry these
on or not, now we are starting to return to Church.

Blessings this in between day,

Robert

Robert’s Good Friday YouTube reflection

Dearest all,

I have recorded reflections at the Cross in church this time. They will be released at 12 noon and last 23 minutes.

Some may want to watch them at some point during the 3 hours from noon when darkness fell across the land until 3 pm, when it is recorded that Jesus died.

Here is the link:

To also remind you, if you want to watch 6 of us carry 3 crosses to the top of Twerton Roundhill from 11.30 am, it is being streamed live on St Barnabas’ FaceBook page at: facebook.com/stbarnabasbath

Blessings in the love of Christ today,

Robert

Robert’s Holy Week YouTube video for 1st April

Dear all,

I hope you can stay with us through all this – Jesus’ story of his final
week seems very harsh this year…….. (did we miss how harsh it was
before?…)

And yet, he did it all for us, went through it all for us and for our
freedom.

Anyway, here’s the link, and hope to ‘see’ you on Zoom at our service
this evening at 8 pm (final details sent round by email to you yesterday)

Blessings in Christ,

Robert

Robert’s Holy week YouTube video for 29th March

Dear all, as we begin this week of reflection and worship on the love of
our Lord Jesus Christ for us all, and for the whole world.

We are using Mark’s Gospel right through this week.

Here is the link to this morning’s reflection on the Anointing by Mary
at Bethany (and indeed Judas’s final decision to betray Jesus).

Blessings in Christ this week particularly as we walk the Way with Jesus,

Robert
