We are so sorry not to be meeting together on Sunday as Passiontide begins, and I do hope you are all coping in these difficult times. Rev Linda Porter has been in touch with the following message for us all:
On Sunday morning Bishop Christopher will be celebrating the eucharist at Bishopsgrove at 8 a.m.  You can join him on www.facebook.com/CofEPortsmouth at that time or throughout the day on the diocesan website
As you know, it being a fifth Sunday, we would have been worshipping as a benefice together at Shalfleet.  By going to the St. Mary’s Brighstone Facebook page you can join in a short act of worship led by myself at 11 0’clock, again available throughout the day.
There is, of course, the daily service on Radio 4, Premier Christian Radio has, at noon and at 2.30 p.m., worship hours which include songs, prayers and Bible readings.  And there is, as you all know, Songs of Praise.
If you would like to join me at 11 0’clock and want to turn up prepared, the readings for tomorrow are
Ezekiel 37:1-14 and John 11:1-45.
With my prayers during this difficult time.
Revd. Linda Porter
