Keeping in Touch

05 June 2020

What’s new this Week

First, we’ve now got a regular [email protected] meeting – a marriage of ‘service’ and ‘chat in the pub’. Details are below in the Zoom section – and we’d love to see regulars and new comers join us.

Second, Zoom are moving towards a policy of requiring passwords for meetings. So we’ve added these to some of our regular meetings pre-emptively. Details are included below. So where you just clicked the link to join before, you might now have to enter the password too!

Pastoral Support

We’d love to hear from you in joy or sorrow – keeping connected whilst we’re physically distancing. Please contact: [email protected] or 07906 249132. We’re also keen to hear about members of the cathedral community who might have been overlooked – those we could help or who would just like a chat.

On Telegram

Our Telegram Group has around 60 members and is a gentle means of keeping in touch with people during the lockdown. It’s easy to use; just download the Telegram messenger app for computer or phone and sign up. If I have your mobile phone number in my contacts, I should be notified that you’ve joined and will invite you to join the group. If I don’t make this invitation, do send an email to Canon Chris Palmer and he will be pleased to add you.

On Zoom

Do join one of our – now weekly – Zoom meet ups. We have some simple instructions on how to join.

Sundays at 7.00pm
[email protected]
A new format for an old favourite! 45 minutes combining bible reading, prayer, reflection, conversation, and silence. A very simple structure that allows for informal worship, with a large part of the time given over to talking together in response to the reading and reflection.

Prayers for Healing
The regular Prayers for Healing group, bringing the needs of our world and community to God. We’re sending this link – and emailing the service sheet – to members of our community who ask. Please email [email protected] for an invitation.

Tuesdays at 8.00pm, led by members of the Cathedral community
Lectio Divina Group
Lectio Divina, or divine reading, is an ancient form of praying with Scripture. We listen to the Bible with the “ear of the heart,” with the aim of nourishing and deepening our relationship with God. Please see this leaflet for more information about what to expect.
We will be using the Gospel reading for the day. You can find it in the Oremus Almanac at Click on the View tab, choose the date from the calendar, and it is the last reading under ‘Holy Communion.’ Click the red triangle to read it.

And finally

It’s brilliant to see the ways that so many people in our community have created connections, and are using phone, email, video-conferencing, and messenger groups to keep contact. Do share your ideas of what works, so that others can learn from your experience.
