Pray Vespers at 5pm with us!

While St Chrysostom’s is closed for public worship because of the Coronavirus we invite you to join us in Vespers, wherever you are.

We’ve developed this lovely ‘Pray Vespers’ tradition at St Chrysostom’s over the years. We invite friends to join us in prayer wherever they are. Whether you are in Beijing or Bognor, Malaysia or Manchester, YOU are invited to  join in wherever you are, and “Pray Vespers!

All you have to do is follow this link: Take me to Vespers

This will take 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.

Click here for another version – slightly longer but good too. (In this we suggest going from the psalm to the second Bible reading (missing out the first Bible reading and what follows it)).

Each day, Sunday through to Friday Vespers will be webcast at 5pm on our Church Facebook page. You can listen in then – or indeed afterwards as it will stay on the page. This Vespers will use a simple form which is available on our website, and in print form by request.

So why not join with others who have already said that they will do this?

We invite people YOU to join in, ideally at 5pm, but that time may not suit you – that’s OK – just find a good time.

It’s great in these days of distancing if people can share a photo through social media on the day you say Vespers – perhaps a selfie, showing where they are. We’re encouraging people to use the hashtag #PrayVespers

Prayer is never alone – we are always joined by others – and it’s lovely to remember that as we pray at 5pm we join in with other members of our congregation in praise and worship.

#PrayVespers at 5pm!
