Study Day to Examine Streaming Worship

Wednesday February 1 2023

A study day later this month will look at the theology and practice of streaming Sunday worship.

The Church Service Society’s Annual Study Day, taking place in Stirling on Friday February 24, will hear from both Roman Catholic and Church of Scotland clergy.

Streaming of Sunday services – whether to YouTube or Facebook live, or using videoconferencing technology such as Zoom - became common during the Covid-19 lockdown, and many churches have continued to do so even as restrictions were lifted.

The study day will reflect on the experience of churches to date, and also ask what light it throws on the standard ‘gathered’ worship, its shape and content.

The speakers will be the Rev Dr Tom Shields, former member of the Roman Catholic / Church of Scotland Commission on Doctrine and parish priest of Crieff and Comrie, and the Rev Fraser Penny, minister of Dunkeld Cathedral. There will also be an opportunity for participants to share their own experiences and practices.

The event takes place in Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, Stirling, on Friday February 24 from 10.15am-4pm. The planned cost is £10 payable on the day, although organisers warn that that may change depending on catering arrangements.
