ON-LINE SERVICES

Welcome to our on-line Worship Portal!
Here you can find links to all our online services which are taking place whilst our church buildings are closed due to the COVID-19 situation. Rev’d John will conduct these services at the stated times – you are encouraged to play them at said times, so in essence the worship is live, though you are also welcome to take part at your convenience. You may wish to ‘phone a friend’ and allow them to join in the worship with you if they don’t have access to modern tech or gadgets (use loudspeaker on your phone for best results).

Good Friday Evening
St Bartholomew’s Choir had planned to sing Stainer’s Crucifixion this year. Unfortunately, due to the circumstances, this will not be possible this year. We do however, have a recording from 2003 which is available to listen to on-line.

Traditionally, St Bartholomew’s Choir have sung Stainer’s Crucifixion or Olivet to Calvary on alternate years. We also have a recording from 2004 which is available to listen to online.

We also have a powerpoint file containing images and the music for Olivet to Calvary. This will not work on all devices (you may get images but not audio), but if you wish to try it, the link is here. It is advisable to download the file first (approx 90MB) and then commence the slide show.
