Church at Home

Third Sunday of Easter

Sunday 18 April

Join us at 10am to worship together on the third Sunday of Easter. We are delighted that Revd Guy Elsmore, Archdeacon of Buckingham, will be presiding for us, with the Revd Will Pearson-Gee, Rector of Buckingham, preaching.

This week our Gospel passage shows the disciples reacting to the appearance of the Risen Christ – their fear and doubts are quelled by Christ’s words. In our passage from Acts, Peter addresses the crowd having healed a lame man: he explains what the power of God can do through his followers and offers the opportunity to repent. Together these readings show us what it means to follow Christ and to be Easter people.

Come and Eat is a new podcast series on Holy Communion, the profound, wonderful meal at the heart of our faith. It focuses on the Eucharist and on resetting our sacramental life as we face the months ahead, looking at different sections of John 6 and Jesus’ invitation to his disciples in John 21 to ‘come and eat.’

We are offering live streamed worship for the Diocese on Sundays and Holy Days in the coming months to complement what is offered by local churches. This Diocesan prayer and worship is designed to be sustainable over the long haul, collaborative, creative, accessible to all traditions, and reliable. We are prioritising, not competing with, local church streams. Our principal Diocesan services will be at 10am each Sunday.
