For the Seventh Sunday of Easter, the Rt Rev Ian Paton, Bishop of St Andrews, Dunkeld & Dunblane, celebrates the Eucharist from his home in Perth.

Bishop Ian will be joined virtually by the members of the Diocese of St Andrews, Dunkeld & Dunblane:

Lis Burke, Diocesan Warden of Lay Readers reads from the book of Acts; the Dean of the Diocese, the Very Rev Kenny Rathband, reads the Epistle; the Rev Annie Hughes, Curate at St John’s, Perth reads the Gospel and Rachael Wright, Mixed Mode student for the Highland Perthshire charges leads the intercessions.  The organist for the service is Michael Bawtree.

The service will begin at 11am on Sunday May 24.

Links to download the liturgy will be published on the website on Saturday, ahead of the service.

There will also be a Service of the Word at 6.30pm on Thursday 28 March led by Dr Ros Brett & Dr Chris Brett, Lay Readers in the Diocese of Argyll & The Isles.

The broadcasts will be available for all to access on YouTube and Facebook. Subtitles are available on both platforms, if selected by the user. Look for the CC icon at the bottom of the display screen on YouTube; on facebook, go to Settings, then Video, then select Always Show Captions.

The Scottish Episcopal Church website will also contain downloadable video and audio formats of the services, when these are ready.

We encourage people to distribute the video/audio recordings and the Liturgy widely within their own personal networks. In households with no internet or playback capacity at all, if people are simply given the opportunity to read the words of the Liturgy to themselves close to the appointed time, they will be praising God along with others in the Church.
