Virtual Church

Not everyone can come to church at present, but our virtual Church is open

 

Come and join our live streams, interactive prayer times and gatherings

as we come closer to Christ in hope and joy!

 

We’d like to encourage everyone to join our virtual activities – it may sound complicated or worrying, but it isn’t once you get  used to it, and everyone who does it – loves it! It’s well worth the effort. We’d love to see you there…

Useful notes:

livestreaming

For clarity: there is a difference between our livestreaming, and our Virtual Prayer room

 

The livestreamed Masses, and Morning and Evening Prayer, and the main Triduum services, are all on YouTube – just clicking on the link should take you straight there. Between the services there is nothing there, though you can see recordings of previous services by clicking here (also YouTube).

 

The Virtual Prayer room is accessed using the Zoom app, which is honestly very easy to use! You should be able to reach any of the events by clicking on the links in the list above.

But if that doesn’t work, the room can be accessed through the following link https://us02web.zoom.us/j/4388694572?pwd=czhyQjZETzhNYzNVb2hUUWJDRHp5Zz09  Alternatively, open your Zoom app (if installed), enter or copy/paste the Meeting ID: 438 869 4572 then click ‘Join’.

If prompted for password, use 287520

A few minutes before the session, click on the link. Make sure you enable video and audio when prompted. The Virtual Prayer Room will open a few minutes before the session begins. It will be closed at other times (though you can still test out the link).

If it’s your first time – don’t worry. It gets easier! Any problems you can contact us for help

PeterCares

With great assistance from SVP, the parish has been developing this phone-based   project which aims to help us keep connected with each other, especially those who feel most isolated. We are all vulnerable at this time in different ways, from the isolated elderly to those working on the front line to the struggling family with children at home and jobs on the line. Our desire is that as many people as possible, especially those who are struggling, know that our parish cares for them during this time of crisis and beyond. We want to turn our concern for others into action and to spread a net of charity and kindness across our community, as a practical witness of our Christian faith in these times troubled by the Coronavirus pandemic.

Contact us via email petercares@stpeterswinchester.org.uk ,  via this website, phone 01962 852804, or use Facebook.  If you know of anyone who needs help, or even just a friendly phonecall, please let us know.

If you can OFFER HELP do so informally to friends, family and neighbours, and let us know if you can offer more.

 

Young People

We have a special page of information and resources for our young people, and updates on the First Communion and Confirmation programmes – look here.

 

 

Our churches

The church is still here, and still here for you, even though everything has changed so dramatically.

You can stay in touch, and you can ask for help or prayers.

You can still contact us: although we have limited staff now, phone answering machines and  email accounts will be checked.

 

 

 

We have set up a Prayerline

giving you the opportunity to request and offer prayers for all – email us at prayers@stpeterswinchester.org.uk

And you can pray anyway. That is what we will be doing, alongside the practical steps we’re taking.

The Bishops have provided  a set of prayers for use by everyone who cannot get to Mass – you can find them here.

And a team in the Parish has produced a beautiful Prayer leaflet for use by everybody – you can find it here

 

 

 

The Parish Facebook page

is one of the best ways to keep in touch, and many parishioners are already visiting it regularly. It is being updated several times a day with practical information and news, and with prayers, messages, pictures and ideas from around the Parish and elsewhere in the Catholic world. It is also a good way to contact us quickly and get a speedy response.

Any contributions to the Facebook page welcome.
