For Trinity Sunday (7 June) the Rt Rev Kevin Pearson, Bishop of Argyll & The Isles, celebrates the Eucharist from St John’s Cathedral, Oban.
Bishop Kevin will be joined digitally by people from the Diocese of Argyll & The Isles. The readers are Stephen Plant (St Columba’s, Portree, Isle of Skye); Brigadier John MacFarlane (St John’s, Oban) who reads the Epistle in Gaelic; and Gospeller is the Rev Amanda Fairclough (West Highland Region). The intercessions are read by Alison Clark (St Paul’s, Rothesay, Isle of Bute). Other conributors are Rufus and Felix (Young members of St John’s Cathedral, Oban) who read the Lord’s Prayer in Gaelic, and the Rev Canon Peter Moger (St Peter’s, Stornoway and St Moluag’s, Eoropie) who reads the prayer for spiritual communion.
Music comes from Charles Marshall (St John’s Cathedral, Oban) and friends, and the organist is James Campbell.
The service will begin at 11am on Sunday June 7.
Recently, we introduced a telephone service to allow those who do not have internet access to listen to the service of worship by telephone. The facility is free of charge for anyone calling by landline or mobile phone from within the UK. It will be helpful if those who have online access to worship continue to use that method rather than using the telephone line, to avoid unnecessary additional cost incurred by the GSO, and we would also appreciate help in reaching non-internet users who are unable to see this information.
Anyone who would like full details of how to access the telephone line, in order to share them with someone who needs this service should email AidanS@scotland.anglican.org.
Links to the liturgy and links to join the service will be available before the service, on Saturday.
The broadcast 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.
