Tomorrow is the Sixth Sunday of Easter, and we continue to rejoice in the acclamation – Alleluia, He is risen!   There will not be a service in Church tomorrow, but there will be an online service, via Zoom, of Morning Prayer at 10 am – more details from me at; I hope that you will be able to join us.T

The BBC continues to broadcast the Sunday service at 8.10 am on Radio 4.   In addition, the services, and the wide range of readings and prayers, on the Church of England, Diocese of York and York Minster websites –, and – continue to provide a spiritual resource and re-assurance.

There are a number of resources both on air and on line which we hope you will find helpful.   These include:

  • the service each Sunday on BBC Radio 4 at 8.10 am;
  • a Hymn for the Day and the Sunday Service from the Royal School of Church Music (, to which St Augustine’s is affiliated;
  •  both the Church of England ( and the Diocese of York(, they provide a wide range of readings and prayers of support and encouragement.

The Book of Psalms can be a great source of comfort and inspiration; Psalms 16 - Preserve me, O God, 23 – The Lord is my Shepherd -  and 121 – I will lift up mine eyes to the hills – are commended.

The Church has a recently established Facebook page  - St Augustine’s, Kirkby & Great Broughton - which, like the website, is regularly up-dated
