A pre-recorded morning service with the Rev Canon Chris Newlands, Vicar of Lancaster St Mary (The Priory) will be available to view from 9am on Sunday, via the Diocesan YouTube channel.

Just click on the embedded video above to watch it at the alloted time. 

This service on Remembrance Sunday, the third Sunday before Advent, is the latest of a series recorded during the coronavirus outbreak. Please note it was recorded before lockdown. 

Led by Rev. Chris Newlands, it includes a reading from the Lord Lieutenant of Lancashire, the Lord Shuttleworth; a wreath laying ceremony at the Priory Regimental Chapel featuring the Mayor of Lancaster, Councillor Malcolm Thomas; the Chairman of Lancashire County Council, County Councillor Suzie Charles and Captain Robin Ashcroft, a representative from the Regimental chapel Committee.

Ripley St Thomas CofE Academy Air Cadet Force will also play a role in the commemorations. 

The service will also remember all those we have lost in the pandemic and features prayers for doctors, nurses and key workers, led by RGN Debbie Smith, Clinical Site Manager at Royal Lancaster Infirmary.

Rev. Chris Newlands said: “Our Remembrance Service is normally one of the biggest attended events of the year at the Priory, so we anticipate a lot of people from Lancaster will watch the online service; as well as people from around Lancashire. 

“It is important we gather as a nation to remember those who have died in war and, at this time, we also remember all those who have died during the pandemic, including those who placed themselves in harm’s way to protect people in their care.”

Lancaster Priory has produced the Liturgy specially for this service, this can be found here. 

Please note: The video is a preset 'premiering video' so it won't actually begin to play until the 'premiere time', which is 9am on Sunday, November 8.

Our regular Liturgy provided each week is also available and can be found here.
