Good evening and welcome to our service.
The audio service includes the homily and intercessions - if you wish to read the homily later you can find it on my sermon blog at https://parishnews.postach.io/post/opening-audio-and-video-linkshttps://pedericksermons.postach.io.
Scrolling down this page you will first find the link to click to start the audio service playing, and a scroll box so you can follow the text and images for the service. Below this you will see a selection of hymns (from YouTube) that you might like to play either before or after the service. At the very bottom of the page you will find a comments box - this can be used for posting prayers, praise or encouragement for the whole congregation!
Before you begin the service please set up a bowl and jug of water on the table as we will be washing our hands in remembrance of Jesus' service to us, and his command to love and serve on another. If you are worshipping as a household you may like to pour water over on another's hands at this point in the service. For more hints see:

The following hymns have been chosen because they go with the theme of our service on Maundy Thursday. They are made available from YouTube so you can either sing along or just watch and listen. You might want to sing one or two before and the others after you play the audio service.
