Parish of Bisley and West End

Home Worship & Resources

There are lots of resources available to help people through this time, including our own Parish of Bisley and West End Online Services

Liturgy and prayer resources – brought to you by the Church of England, prayers and intercessions for personal or group use, special prayers for use if it isn’t possible to meet in church, and a simple form of prayer for the morning and evening, which can be downloaded, printed, and shared with those remaining at home or who are unable to access the Internet. 

At this time of home self-isolation the guidance issued by the Church of England is that attendance at funerals should be limited to only immediate family members, with a maximum of just ten attendees. Obviously this makes it terribly hard for anyone experiencing the loss of a friend or family member (particularly if they are far away) and you cannot attend the funeral that you otherwise would. To help you through through this difficult time, please click here to download some notes to assist you with your own private reflections at home, on the day of the funeral you cannot attend. 

Church of England apps – apps with daily readings, prayer, and reflections on the psalms, to name a few. 

The Archbishop’s video bible studies 

The Ignatian Pray-as-you-go App - for a daily 10 min prayer/guided meditation. 

YouVersion – a bible app with an abundance of reading plans and verses for the day. You can invite people to join you using a reading plan. 

https://engageworship.org/engage-at-home-daily-family-prayer-and-worship-activities  This site is updated daily with some really lovely ideas for worship at home and praying together as a family.

Bible App for Kids 

Children’s resources from the LifeKids team. 

Bible lens – transforms your everyday photos into profound, Biblically-based artistic shareable images. Bible Lens lets you take a picture or select one you already have. It detects not only objects in your photo, but more importantly, the Biblical themes of the moment that photo captured… and then suggests Bible verses to match!
