How to Join In
During the Coronavirus pandemic, we will live stream as many services as possible via Facebook and over the telephone – a brilliant way to get your spiritual fix if you are stuck at me.
You can access many of our services on Facebook at www.facebook.com/boxriverbenefice/
You can listen to many of our services live on your telephone by calling 03300 881939 and then entering the access code 120899 when prompted to do so (this can be a little less reliable)
A Holy Eucharist will be offered on behalf of the entire benefice at 11am each Sunday. Whilst I appreciate that not physically receiving Communion will be very difficult for many of us, this service will at least offer us the opportunity to engage in spiritual communion together. We will still be the Body of Christ as we are united together in worship through the Eucharistic Sacrifice being offered on behalf of the whole body in Church and in our coming together as one, albeit not in the same building.
Morning Prayer will be at 8.30am Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Midweek Eucharist every Wednesday at 10am. A Midday Reflection will happen Mondays to Thursdays at 12noon. Evening Prayer Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday Thursday and Friday at 5.30pm. Compline will be offered at 9pm.
If you are unable to access these services online or on telephone, you can still pray the services with us in your homes knowing that we will be doing them together as a Church community at these times.
You can also access regular services on BBC Radio 4 longwave at 9.45am each day and at 8am on Sundays. Our Bishops are also streaming regular services here: www.facebook.com/BishopsCofESuffolk/. You can also find services on St Edmundsbury Catherdral’s webiste at: https://www.cofesuffolk.org/bishops/broadcasting-live-services
