Easter 2020: Ninian – A Call to Bless – Easter Saturday

Welcome to Easter Saturday with The Northumbria Community. It has been a privilege to share our weekend with everyone so far and a joy to hear from so many of you about how you have been joining in with our activities.

Today we continue to focus on the theme of being a blessing, asking ‘how then shall we live?’ As part of our daily rhythm for the Easter Weekend, we suggest that, following your own Morning Prayers, you join in at 10am and watch a video of today’s chosen bible readings taken from Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 and Matthew 27: 57-66.

Today’s talk is from Sarah Hay, one of our Community Leaders, responsible for the School for Monastic Living.

At 12 midday we will be joining Community Companions Martin and Bekah Neil for Midday Prayer in Wales. Unfortunately, the live stream failed yesterday, so they have pre-recorded the liturgy for us for today and the link is included on the Easter webpage. We are also including a link to the midday prayer that was recorded at St Ninian’s Cave, which we used yesterday in the Facebook private group instead of the live stream. Please be blessed with a choice of either of these and know that you haven’t missed anything

From 2pm, you can join in with the activities. Please do remember to share the fruits of these with us, either on Facebook, or using the School email address – school@northumbriacommunity.org

From 7pm onwards, we are delighted to welcome you into the home of Netta and Mike Gibbs for our Easter Vigil. It has been recorded prior to Easter and can be used earlier in the evening with families, or, indeed, just before midnight – whatever your preference is.
