Good Friday and Easter Day

An invitation from Bishop Christine - Good Friday and Easter Day

 

These are extremely challenging times for all of us and we are having to find new ways of worshipping and praying together, and to do this many of us are engaging with technology in ways we have never done before. This Easter, I will be holding two online services to which all are invited.

I am attaching the Spiritual Communion resource (click here) – you may find it helpful to have it for personal use during the service on Easter Day. It may also be helpful to note that the Gospel Reading on Easter Day will be John 20. 1-18

  • Please join me tomorrow from 12 pm on the Diocese of Newcastle Facebook page and You Tube channel for my Good Friday Meditation – a collection of reflective video and audio messages from me, Bishop Mark, the Archdeacons of Lindisfarne and Northumberland, and the Dean of Newcastle. If you do not have a Facebook account you can still view the Facebook video by clicking the ‘not now’ button when Facebook asks you to sign in. On You Tube, you do not need an active account to view the video, and it will also be on our website.
  • Join me for my Easter Day Eucharist to be streamed live on Facebook from my chapel at Bishop’s House – 9am Sunday. A recording will be available on our You Tube channel from 10am and also our website.

Here are links to our Facebook, You Tube and website pages:

I am also be taking part in Newcastle Cathedral’s Service of Light and Celebration of the Resurrection, with hymns, readings and reflection, which will be available on the Cathedral You Tube channel at 10am on Easter Sunday.
