For the fourth Sunday of Easter, the Most Rev Mark Strange, Primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church, celebrates the Eucharist from the chapel of St Duthach, at his home near Inverness this weekend.

Bishop Mark will be joined virtually by the Rev Norma Higgott, Deacon at St Andrew’s Cathedral, Inverness and Chaplain at the Highland Hospice.

The readings and intercessions come from different locations in the Diocese of Moray, Ross & Caithness and the Diocese of Glasgow & Galloway.  The readers are John Mitchell, from St Margaret’s Church, Renfrew; Douglas Campbell, from the Crask Inn near Lairg, in Sutherland; and the Rev Harriet Oxley, Curate at St James the Less, Bishopbriggs.

The Intercessions will be read by members of the Provincial Youth Network: Martha and Jadon from the Diocese of Moray, Ross & Caithness; and Zara from the Diocese of Glasgow & Galloway.

The service will begin at 11am on May 3 and the liturgy will be available to download before the service here.

The broadcast is 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.

You can find the broadcast at:

The Scottish Episcopal Church website will also contain a downloadable video and audio format of the service, when these are ready. The service will be available for one week after its initial broadcast.

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.
