Online services for Easter 2020 - Open Table
If you are unable to access Easter worship through your local church, you may be interested to know that two of the communities in the Open Table Network are offering online services starting tonight until Sunday evening.
- Start Date:
- Thursday 16th April 2020
Services for the Triduum (Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday, are being broadcast live on the Facebook page of St Mary’s Kilburn, in the parish which hosts Open Table London:
Maundy Thursday 8pm (tonight)
Good Friday 12 noon
Holy Saturday 8pm (Easter Vigil)
On Sunday, the church which hosts Open Table in Manchester, St Paul’s Blackley, will broadcast a pre-recorded service on its Facebook group from 6.15pm.
After the live broadcast these services will be available to watch at your convenience.
In case you missed it, our first national online worship gathering is still on Youtube.

While you’re there, why not subscribe to our Youtube channel to be notified of future uploads.
We are also working behind the scenes with OneBodyOneFaith and other partners to ensure our support for LGBTQIA+ Christians continues as much as we can make it happen. We know that for some in our communities, home may not be a place of safety and sanctuary, so having nowhere else to be at this time is a particular challenge. If this is your situation, this online gathering is dedicated particularly to you, that you may know you are a beloved child of God, that God loves you just as you are, and calls you to be all you can be with the help of Jesus who taught us how to love.
If your own church is broadcasting worship or providing resources which may benefit others, do let me know so I can share it with the wider network.
Please be assured of my continued prayers and support.
PLEASE DO let me know what’s happening in your communities - it’s great to share your inspiration and experience with others. DEADLINE: End of the month for inclusion in next month’s newsletter.
Or if you’re seeking inspiration and support to start an Open Table community near you.
Email email@example.com - I’m here to help!
