Pastoral Letter - Sunday Service Restart Aug. 09 2020

Dear Friend from Bridport United, Uploders Methodist or Hope or Radipole United Reformed Churches,


Well having already written about the prospects of meeting in person this week at Bridport I don’t have much to add as a prelude to this week’s service options there than to remind you that the service at the United Church will be starting at 10am and you would need a bit of extra time to enter as we can only have one household in the foyer at the same time?

So - our options this week are as follows:-
1) Methodist Circuit Video service will as usual appear on the Dorset South and West website on Saturday evening and this week’s service is led by me with a Reflection from another of my friends from Theological College Days, (now based in Scotland), the Rev’d Sarah Moore, plus music from Heather Reed and Pete Brazier. The YouTube link is here though doesn’t go live on YouTube until 5pm tonight:  



2) URC Audio Service from the URC Daily Devotions Team will be led on Sunday by the Sunday’s service of Holy Communion is led by the Rev’d Stewart Cutler minister of St Ninian’s Church in Stonehouse, a partnership between the Church of Scotland and the United Reformed Church.  

Hymns include:

  William Whiting’s Eternal Father, Strong to Save,

  Priscilla J Owens’ Will Your Anchor Hold?,

  Brian Wren’s I Come With Joy To Meet My Lord, a lovely Sanctus from Argentina in both Spanish and English, and

  Cecil Francis Alexander’s Jesus Calls O’er the Tumult.

The service will go online, as normal, at 9.45 on Sunday morning for a 10am start.  If you have any problems receiving it please read the website for advice: then finding the link to the Daily Devotions and clicking the Service option.  As usual you will have the option of printing the service sheet too.

As always the service will be sent out in time for a 10am start but you can listen at any point after that.


Blessings from your Minister,


Rev'd Peter Clark
