Diocesan worship services 2021

Diocesan worship services 2021

This page contains information about online worship services, the link for downloading worship leaflets, and links to sermons preached at the diocesan online services for 2021.

As we continue to worship online, it is vital to remember that the Church is not closed. Some of our buildings are closed to the public, and in-person worship has been suspended in our congregations as we work to care for one another, especially the most vulnerable among us.

But God is with us. Ministry continues.

For as long as necessary, the diocese will be offering an online worship service each Sunday at 10 am at the Diocesan YouTube Channel and at Facebook.com/DioFW

Clergy from several congregations will be taking part in the worship from week to week. You do not need a Facebook account to participate in the worship service. Worship leaflets for each service will be available to download as soon as they are prepared.

Download online worship leaflets here.

Please also check with your own congregations about what online offerings they will be making during the pandemic.
