Sunday 26th April, Easter 3
|9.30 am||Live stream on Services page||Eucharist with hymns for the Berkhamsted Team Ministry||(JR)|
Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, there will be no formal acts of worship at our three Parish Churches for the foreseeable future. All our churches will now stay closed until further notice. There will be a live-streamed Eucharist service at 9.30am on a Sunday for all the Berkhamsted Team Ministry. The live stream will be available on the Services page.
New Layout for Live Stream on Services Page
We are trying out a new layout on the Services page that we hope will work better for viewing live streams and video recordings of services. On larger screens and tablets, the video and the service paper will now be displayed side by side to make it easier to follow both at the same time. On smaller screens such as mobiles, the service paper is below the video. On all screen sizes, the pew sheet/bulletin then follows. The download links are still available in case you want your own copies of the papers.
Please remember that the church continues to function even with the buildings closed, so we do ask that you continue with your regular financial giving to support the ministry. If you normally give weekly in church, you may like to consider paying direct through your bank account.
Do you need any Financial Help?
If you, or anyone you know, is in financial difficulty, the Vicar has access to hardship funds. Please feel free to contact him in the strictest of confidence on 01442 214898 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
