15th September 2021

Dear all….

Each week in Lockdown I have been hosting study / discussions on various topics. This Wednesday 15th we will be taking a look at prayer. Specifically praying the Psalms. 

The content for the Study will come from an address that I watched  while at the Anglo Catholic conference. The address is from the Reverend Richard Peers who is the Sub Dean at Christ Church, Oxford. Richard has extensive experience as a Spiritual Director, retreat giver and leader of pilgrimages.

We will be watching the clip together and then stopping throughout for discussion. The Psalms are the foundation of a lot of our worship so it should be an interesting topic to explore together. 


Topic: Wednesday Discussions: Praying the Psalms
Time: Sep 15, 2021 07:00 PM Auckland, Wellington

25/8/21

Dear all…

A few years ago I did a Lent study focused on worship and liturgy. As we are continuing in lockdown for the foreseeable future I thought I would offer this again via Zoom as a ‘talk’ but also a discussion. We will be exploring the changes in our liturgy over time and how that is reflected (or not reflected) in our church spaces and architecture. It will be about an hour long depending on length of the discussion. 

I will look to host these ‘discussions’ every Wednesday at 7pm on a different topic. Others could be a more traditional bible study or a topic such as tomorrow’s. So please do join me.

The details are:

Wednesday 25th August at 7pm

Jordan Greatbatch is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Dear all…

It is with some sadness that we once again have to worship together online. But despite this we are forever hopeful that we will be be able to gather physically together as Church soon. And know that in the meantime we can pray with and for each other. 

As I did last year I have prepared Morning Pray for this Sunday. Please find the video by clicking the link below.

Last Thursday I hosted a live stream Night Prayer service on Facebook. I have decided to offer this 3 nights a week at 7p,. Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday. Tomorrow I will send out an email with the link for the Facebook stream. The best way to connect however is just to go to our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/allsaintsbirkenhead at 7pm and you will see the live stream post. 

Also don’t forget to ‘like’ the All Saint’s Facebook site and also to ‘subscribe’ to the All Saints YouTube channel to get updates on new videos. 

Stay safe and well.

Blessings,

Jordan

Dear all….

I hope this finds you all safe and well. It is certainly concerning having so many locations of interest in Birkenhead and the North Shore. I hope you all take the time to check if you were at any of those locations at that time and take any subsequent precautions.

On a more positive note I am wanting to try live stream Night Prayer at 7pm tonight via Facebook live streaming. You don’t have to be a member of Facebook to join me. You just need to click the following link:

All Saint’s Night Prayer

If you have a NZ Prayer Book Night Prayer is found on page 167. For an online copy of the Night Prayer Liturgy click this link:

Night Prayer Liturgy NZPB

This will be a ‘one-off’ at this stage but we will see how it all goes and I will let you know when I might do it again.

If you are looking for a daily Morning & Night Prayer service there is a NZ Anglican Facebook site hosting live streaming of the daily office at:

The Daily Office Facebook Page

On Sunday morning I will release a pre-recorded Morning Prayer service from the Church as I did at the last Lockdowns so please look out for that.

In the meantime do take care and I look forward to seeing some of you tonight.
 

Pax et Bonum

peace and goodwill
