Recording Material for inclusion in Parish Videos

We are asking for material for parish videos and you don’t have to have any particularly advanced technology to record and send them. It can be as simple as a phone call. Read on…

If you have only a telephone with no special features …

Alan can record any comments you would like to make over the phone.  Please call the Rectory and arrange a time to do this.  It will involve calling Alan on his mobile – and a number will be provided to do this.

If you have a smartphone/computer with camera and microphone

Large files can be sent to Alan via

If you don’t know how to use the computer to do this

  1. Click on the magnifying glass at the bottom left of the screen.
  2. Search for Camera (or Voice Recorder if you just want to record your voice)
  3. Click on the Camera App option/Voice Recorder Option
  4. Click on the Video button on the right hand side of the screen so that it is white and click on it again to start recording.  It will turn red, click there to stop recording.
    The Voice recorder will look like one of the other two pictures, depending on whether there is already a recording in the folder.  Click on the microphone to start recording.  There will be a blue circle with a square in it to stop recording.
  5. CameraSoundSound more 1
  6. Open File Explorer Pictures / Camera Roll – you should find the video you have recorded there.  Sound is in Documents/Sound Recording.
  7. Use FileMail, TransferXL or PCloud (works better on mobiles) to select a video and send it to Alan.

Using a mobile/tablet

  1. Record the video – turn your device to landscape mode – it gives a bigger picture.
  2. Use PCloud to select the video and send it to Alan.


“Click Here” to attach a file.


Click on Files


Find the Video and click on it.


Fill in Alan’s email address: and your own and an optional message and click SEND FILES.

I look forwards to receiving lots of material.

Helping the Foodbank

Farnham Foodbank is still busy and is distributing food direct to clients, thanks to furloughed drivers from a local engineering firm. If you need help, see details below.

Donations are also needed, both food and money, and you can drop donations off at Church House (the Vineyard Centre), Union Road, Farnham (opposite Gostrey Meadow) between 10am and noon on Thursdays.

Particularly needed at the moment tinned tomatoes, tinned potatoes, individual sponge puddings, sachets of powdered desserts (like Angel Delight), instant mash, tinned rice puddings, laundry detergent tablets, tinned meat (ham, spam, corned beef etc.), and they would love sun cream.

If you need help and have a paper voucher, take a photo of the paper voucher and text it to the Foodbank on 079015 81539 or email it to

They will deliver a food supply to your doorstep.

If you don’t yet have a voucher, contact a Referral Agency who will discuss your situation and supply you with a Foodbank voucher, or contact the Foodbank with the details directly.

Go into the Play Store (Android) or App Store (Apple).


In the bar at the top type Microsoft Teams


Click on Microsoft Teams in the list.


Your screen should say install (mine says open because it is already installed).  Click on that.

When the time to join comes, click on the link in the Weekly Notices, or the invitation that has been emailed to you.


Go into the Play Store as above.

Easter Sunday

Alleluia, Christ is Risen.  He is risen indeed, Alleluia!

Here are today’s services, with a few extras thrown in.

If you haven’t signed up for our E News, or Weekly Notices, please do so.  Includes information about what is coming in the next week and the week after.

Two items I would like to draw your attention to.  They were in last week’s service, but there has been little response, so if you are interested, please let me know.  Thanks

Would anyone like to take part in a virtual house group after Easter? Or would anyone like to run a virtual house group after Easter? Please let me know if you are interested, and if so which days/times of day you could make, and which course(s) you are interested in. More information available here:

In this time when we cannot meet we can still pray for each other. We are contemplating drawing together a list of people to pray for for each day of the month. Not because we are ill or in need, but just because we exist! However, in discussing this we came across the issue of consent, so by way of this notice we are asking whether you would like to be on this list. If so, please let Alan know. Thanks

St John’s

St George’s

St Mark’s

St John’s were in the process of collecting for lilies, before the church was shut.  Normally there would be lilies in church, and a notice saying who was being remembered.  Easter Lilies 2020.

Livvy and June have recorded another Taize chant:

There are also some other things to look at here.

There are also some videos for children of all ages here:

Good Friday – Time at the Cross

Here is the Hymn sheet: Good Friday Holy Saturday Hymns

Today’s service is apologetically focusing on the crucifixion, and contains some graphic descriptions.  A warning is given, and you can scroll past these, or you can do something else instead – perhaps watch one some of the resources either below or here:

Today’s service is in two parts.  The second part is the video below the main service.  At the end of the main service return here to watch the video.  The two together should add up to an hour of material.

Wintershall will livestream through their Facebook page at 12 and 3pm. You do not have to be a Facebook member to see it, it is open to everyone. It includes pre-recorded clips of rehearsals from their Passion Play 2020, clips and interviews from the other cities and towns taking part in the One Good Friday 2020 project.
