Ascension Day service – updated 21st May


Apologies to anyone who tried to watch this live. My computer claimed it was streaming, but I have since discovered that nothing was uploaded. I recorded the service, so will make an unedited version of it available as soon as possible.


This Thursday (21st May) is Ascension Day. Traditionally in Oldbury Benefice we have a service in St Mary’s, Calstone at 7.30am, followed by breakfast. Obviously that is not possible this year, so instead I will (attempt to) live-stream a short service from St Mary’s churchyard at that time. If you want to follow, you will need to go to YouTube and look for “Oldbury Benefice”. You should find an Ascension Day service set to go live on Thursday at 7.30am. Do watch if you can. If you want to click on a direct link, I think it might be here.

This is the countryside, so it is possible that the internet fails us – in which case I apologise in advance! Also, I haven’t got the means of showing you the words on the screen, just what the camera sees, so you might want to download this to join in.

I regret that public gatherings (and therefore public services) are still not permitted, so this is not an invitation to you to come and join me in person, just virtually.
