Stations of the Resurrection at St Clement's

We're pleased to share our "Stations of the Resurrection" this Eastertide at St Clement's. This is a companion to our Stations of the Cross which we released during Holy Week, and features a meditative reading of twelve 'Stations' telling of Jesus's resurrection, ascension, and the descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.

The sequence incorporates scripture, alongside poetry by Malcolm Guite, read by parishioners of St Clement's Church, Cambridge. The readings are accompanied by images of both the modern world, and depictions of Jesus's actions after the resurrection. The sequence finishes with a recording of The Choir of St Clement's singing Thomas Morley's "I am the resurrection and the life", sung at St Clement's in November 2019.

Sermon by Fr John Summers - 17th May 2020

We offer our apologies to those who were unable to join last Sunday's service online via Zoom. We suffered a number of technical issues with the online platform, and were not the only church in the UK experiencing difficulties that morning.

For those who missed Fr John Summers' excellent sermon that morning, we are pleased to be able to offer it online on our YouTube channel (alongside recordings of past sermons and services). We hope you enjoy!

Stations of the Cross at St Clement's

For this year's Good Friday, we have prepared a meditative reading of Malcom Guite's sonnet sequence, "Stations". Read by the parishioners of St Clement's Church, to celebrate the restoration of its station panels by Peter Hilken. We hope these are helpful in your own private prayers and reflections this Triduum.

Please do join us this afternoon at 2.00pm for our reflective service "An hour by the Cross". We will be hosting this on Zoom at: https://us04web.zoom.us/j/6200111351

Palm Sunday Eucharist available online

Unfortunately, a late change in Zoom's policies meant that not everyone was able to access this Sunday's online Eucharist for Palm Sunday. A recording of the service is now available to watch on our YouTube channel, including Bp Rowan's wonderful sermon reflecting on the Passion Gospel.

We apologise for the occasional loss of quality or poor audio in this video - we hope to have a more reliably recorded service next time around. Please do subscribe to our YouTube channel to revisit the latest services when they are uploaded.

Planned works to the churchyard

Whilst in this time of lock down, many 'usual' activities, services and gatherings have been paused or changed, some aspects of life at St Clement's wait for no one...

Before the pandemic took hold, we had submitted a request to the Diocese for a Faculty to improve and renew our churchyard. This is now in review by the Diocesan Advisory Committee, who have granted until 1st May 2020 for people to register any objections or complaints about our plans.

The plans are available to view on our website, and objections may be lodged via email with the Diocesan Registrar at: Ely.Registry@1thesanctuary.com.
