Eight Saints YouTube Channel. We aim to put up a reflection or short sermon and prayer every Sunday at 10am during the time our churches are shut. Join us then, or at a later time to suit you. Hopefully there will also be other reflections, for example during Holy Week.

Something to watch

If you are at home self-isolating and have access to Netflix I can highly recommend Morgan Freemans’s ‘The Story of God’. There are three seasons covering various aspects of faith, religion and God.

Advent Retreat 2016 book!

Okay so this isn't exactly at the right time, but here is the book that was used on the Eight Saints retreat at Abbey House in 2016. It contains orders of service for different daily offices, a bible study with scenarios and discussion points and even a crossword and advent quiz. It could be worth a look!
