Sunday Services and Private Prayer
Join us in church or on YouTube
There is a 9:00am spoken Eucharist in Church on Sunday mornings with the Church remaining open for private prayer afterwards until 11:00am. It is possible to have 20 socially distanced seating ‘slots’ in the main body of the church, each able to accommodate one person or two people from the same household. This means that numbers will be limited to somewhere between 20 and 40. In October, for the first time since lockdown, a small choir will be singing at these services.
The 10:30am Eucharist, which is currently pre-recorded, edited and broadcast online and enjoyed by many of our congregation will continue to remain front and centre for our faith community. What we can do in Church right now cannot be a replacement for this.
Links to the Sunday service on YouTube and the order of service are added a day in advance. The YouTube service starts at 10.30 am, but why not join us from 10.15 so that you can greet other members of the congregation via YouTube Live Chat and hear some wonderful organ playing!
GREAT NEWS FOR ST OLAVE'S & YORK CITY CENTRE CHURCHES
Friday 16th October 2020
Licensing of the new Priest in Charge
We’re delighted that the licensing of Rev’d Liz Hassall as Priest in Charge of the York City Centre Churches (including St Olave’s) will take place at St Olave’s at 7:30pm on Tuesday 15th of December.
At the moment there can only be a very few people in attendance (as the service fits into the same category as weddings and funerals) but we will be live-streaming the occasion so we can all join in the celebration from home.
More details will follow in due course. Please keep Rev’d Liz and family in your prayers as they prepare for the move.
