As you will all be aware, digital communication has taken on increased importance during this extraordinary time, and many of you will be aware of the online worship that has been available on the Scottish Episcopal Church website every Sunday, led by the College of Bishops. This will continue during the current crisis, with four broadcasts In Holy Week:

  • Maundy Thursday, 6pm: The Rt Rev Ian Paton and the Rev Canon Dr Carrie Applegath celebrate a Eucharist from their home.
  • Good Friday, 2.30pm: Bishop Anne Dyer leads a Passion Narrative and the Veneration of the Cross.
  • Holy Saturday, 8.30pm: The Easter Vigil is led by the Primus, the Most Rev Mark Strange, from his home in Arpafeelie.
  • Easter Sunday, 11am: The Rt Rev Ian Paton and the Rev Canon Dr Carrie Applegath will celebrate the Easter Eucharist from within St Ninian’s Cathedral, Perth (no-one else will be present).

Full details of how to access the services will be available on the SEC website here. The Liturgies for Holy Week will be available to download before each broadcast service here.
