Preston Minster will be live-streaming services for the first time in its history in response to the coronavirus outbreak.Advertisement
The move comes after The Church of England suspended all public gatherings in light of the Government’s announcement on Monday.
Vicar of Preston Sam Haigh said: “It’s difficult to express how monumental that step is for all of us.
“In the space of a week, we’ve shifted from physical church to digital church. On Wednesday our Alpha course met via Zoom and this Sunday, for the first time ever, our services will be live-streamed.”
The Minster has also been working to help people affected by coronavirus.
Sam said: “Since Monday, churches across Preston have been mobilising their collective power to put in place plans to be on the frontlines of the response to help those affected by the virus.
“Our people at the Minster, in partnership with our sister church St George’s, are putting together packages that will be distributed across Preston to the most vulnerable, either those in self-isolation or others adversely affected by the virus.”
Preston Minster Sunday services take place at 11am and 6pm. To join, visit the Preston Minster website.
