Sunday Videos and Podcasts

We recognise that in-person attendance is not appropriate or possible for everyone. We offer a selection of links to other churches in the Episcopal/Anglican Communion.

We praise you, O God, that the light of Christ shines amid the darkness of our world, and that the darkness has not overcome it; may his light shine more and more into our own lives, illuminating our minds with the knowledge of your truth and enabling us to walk in the way of holiness and love; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
