Worship@SSJA Online

Note that Church in Wales advice is that online worship should be the norm until further notice. Please do not come to the church building at this time.

This Sunday’s Mass – Livestream

Mass is celebrated online at 10am every Sunday as a live broadcast of the actual liturgy in church. You will need to be connected to the internet to take part.

Direct details of our forthcoming live streamed masses, together with buttons to download the hymn words and order of service can be found here.

To join, simply click on the video preview – the livestream normally begins around 10 minutes before the service starts. If you are watching on a PC, you can make the video full screen by hovering over the bottom of the running video and clicking the ‘square’ icon at the bottom right hand side.

Alternatively, if you are familiar with Youtube you can access our Youtube Channel direct and access the appropriate Sunday liturgy from there (it will appear at the top of list and be dated accordingly – you can’t miss it).

After the Live Stream finishes

Previous Live liturgies are available on our Youtube Channel so if you can’t make the live 10am slot, you will be able to watch and join in later. In these socially distant times we’d love to see your pictures/videos of you and your family participating in worship.

Please subscribe to the Youtube Channel (and click the bell) which will ensure you are emailed when new content is made available.

Sunday 17 Dec – Questions

We arrived at our next stop after Sunday service. We were a bit delayed because we had stayed at church to help our hostess with the Sunday School’s talents – something called a Lucky Dip.

There is a little girl living at this house who keeps asking if we are going to Bethlehem. She also has lots of questions about why Joseph has a stick to walk, and why we have no shoes on. I wonder if my son will be so inquisitive.

We are being well looked after. We shall rest here for one evening before we travel a short distance to our next stop.

Saturday 16 Dec – Little Donkey

This morning we were taken to St Julian’s Parish Church to meet our new hosts. Joseph, myself and our little donkey were taken to our host’s home; on the way there we stopped to buy milk, bread and vegetables.

Our little donkey was put in a little wooden hut which had plenty of hay, food and water. He also had two little chickens to keep him company.

Inside the house our host showed us a small room, inside was a closet which had warm water running out of the round shaped pipe. She said it was a called I shower, which I enjoyed (once I was shown how to use it).

After Joseph and I had rested, we helped make lasagne and pasties which we had for supper (delicious).

Thursday 14 Dec – Pilgrims on the journey

On leaving Mass last night I welcomes Mary & Joseph to share my home. It was with great joy that we said night prayers together at my Holy Corner.

On waking up my thoughts went to them and felt great happiness to be with them. After breakfast we rejoiced and gave thanks for our food and for sharing precious time together and saying morning prayers.

I have promised them both that I will journey with them to Bethlehem and on Christmas Eve I shall celebrate the BIRTH OF CHRIST with great thankfulness.
