Fr Chris writes: It’s always lovely when we hear from so many people over the year as they visit different parts of the world. We love also to hear from former worshippers at St C’s who may now live far away.
Each year, at two different seasons, we invite friends join in with St Chrysostom’s in prayer wherever they are. Whether you are in rain soaked Piccadilly Gardens, sun drenched Ibiza, or snow covered Falkland Islands, YOU can join us in prayer at 5pm wherever you are, and “Pray Vespers!”
All you have to do is follow this link:
This takes you to the form of Vespers for the day which we are encouraging people to use (of course you can use a different version if you prefer).
We believe the version we suggest is simple to read and follow.
So do join with others who have already said that they will do this.
The two times of the year we do this are the month of August, and from Vespers on Christmas Day to Epiphany Sunday. We invite people to volunteer to go on a rota through our church Facebook group or simply e mail with offered dates. It’s great if people can share a photo on the day you say Vespers – perhaps a selfie, showing where they are.
Prayer is never alone – we are always joined by others – and it’s lovely to join in with other members of our congregation in praise and worship as we take part in Pray Vespers at 5pm!
“prayer is nothing else than being on terms of friendship with God” so as we relax and enjoy our breaks together let us also renew our friendship with God.
