Anglican Family Inclusive | Rev. Chris Spittle
St Paul's is an active Anglican parish church in the deanery of Ormskirk, the archdeaconry of Warrington, and the diocese of Liverpool.
In our ageing population, increasing numbers of people find mobility difficult or impossible.
Many spend years in care homes and their only connection with their faith is a visit from the local vicar and maybe Songs of Praise on the BBC.
Songs of Praise will shortly become a magazine show rather than a church service broadcast.
The Rank Trust felt that an internet-based solution with more local services would be a fitting replacement that could be accessed by ever more technologically competent elderly and disabled people. The broadcasts could also be made available on “smart” TVs in care homes.
CTVC, a charitable arm of the Rank Trust, was commissioned to build and deploy the system.
If your CofE church is interested in becoming involved with the project, our PDF brochure is available for download.
