"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."

Our 10am service from St Nicholas' will be broadcast live each week as part of this system: www.thesundayservice.org as well as some of our special services.
