This Sunday’s service was filmed on location in Liverpool. It is a praise service, intended also to show our appreciation of all those who contribute music to our services during the lockdown. In the video we visit Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral, the Roman Catholic Metropolitan Cathedral, the site of the Hope Street Unitarian Church – which are all located on Hope Street – and travel out to the Ancient Chapel of Toxteth, originally built in 1618.
The reading is Psalm 98 and is read by Rosemary Neill of Downpatrick. The organists are: Laura Patterson, Downpatrick; John Strain, Ballee; and Alfie McClelland, Clough.
The hymns sung are:
Onward Christian Soldiers (Mission Praise, 543)
Father Hear the Prayer we Offer (Hymns of Faith and Freedom, 299)
And can it be (Mission Praise, 33)
City of God, how broad and far (Hymns of Faith and Freedom, 299)
Breathe on me, breath of God (Hymns of Faith and Freedom, 177)
