Praise FOR 22 MARCH 2020
Sunday, March 22nd, 2020 - 30 minutes
Churches have now stopped all public worship services, to avoid the spread of the corona virus, so we're launching a new programme here on Manx Radio. Starting on Sunday 29 March, AT YOUR SERVICE will be an ecumenical act of worship - presented each week by at least two different denominations, blending music, a Bible reading, reflections, thoughts and a time of prayer - and maybe some folk will share stories of their faith journey too - In fact, all the elements of a church service - but in a radio programme! We'd love you to choose a hymn or some sacred music which is meaningful to you, and, as many people are now self-isolating, or practising social distancing, could you invite friends to listen 'together' and in that way be united by sharing the programme, each in your own home? AT YOUR SERVICE will be available as a podcast, to download or listen via our website - and on PRAISE today we preview the style and content of the new programme with help from two Methodist ministers - Rev'd Steve Ingrouille and Rev'd Andy Fishburne. There's plenty of music, too, and testimony, as Scripture Union Ministries Trust Schools Worker Hannah Grove takes a look at her own faith journey, and explains what really matters in her life now. The new programme will be at the later time of 9.30am, to bring it closer to the time when church services would normally be starting - we look forward to living faith together - AT YOUR SERVICE!
