Good Friday Service of Reflection

During this period when churches are closed, the St Albans Podcast has teamed up with Dagnall Street Baptist Church to bring you a weekly church service you can experience at home. We hope that the readings, prayers and music will help you reflect on this day and that you will feel part of the community of our church through these difficult times.

We are grateful to Rory Carver and Matthew Green for providing the music and to Danny Smith, our sound engineer.

    Thank you all. I promised a friend I would share the podcast with her as our church here in Malta is not giving a service today, and she felt the need for shared reflection of Good Friday. She has posted it on our Whatsapp group for all to share.

    I thought this service was really good. It’s really good that we can listen to services and still feel connected to each other, during these horrible times. I appreciate the effort that Simon, Jonny, Rory and Matthew have gone to to put this service together, it was really kind of you. Listening to a service makes A LOT OF DIFFERENCE. It makes me feel that I’ve been to church, when I haven’t. I definitely connect with God during these services, the daily Midday prayers as well, I’ll be “there” on Sunday morning, with my cup of coffee, I’ll listen to the service first!!!!!!!!! Thank you very, very much, it’s making SUCH A DIFFERENCE!!!!!!!!! God bless all of you, & DON’T CATCH CORONAVIRUS!!!!!!!!!
    Looking forward to the time when we can all get together again…………. lots of love to everybody.
