Worship At Home Tree

The tree in front of the hospital door is dancing.
Dancing to music that is both silent and loud.
A wind fed ballet of ecstatic mayhem.
The pirouetting branches soar high then fall bowed.
Whirring erratically together in a waltz of sheer joy.
Rejoicing in the ecstasy of breezes, sunlight, sap.
Green leaves and blossom flying skywards.
Then settling slowly into the root's sumptuous lap.

And we who observe it through the clinical windows of the ward.
Listening to the hygienic machine bleeps, bed calls and efficient murmur of care
Whilst contemplating the pain of another round of tests.
Imagining the deadly samba of the virus that we know is there.
In the trees performance we get a glimpse of another melody.
In the wild festivity of creation God promises to hold us tight.
For his movement can lead us through steps of rejoicing or lament.
But even the darkest solemn music has moments of sheer delight

Worship At HomeSCALLOP Worship at Home services

The Scallop churches worship in real time by e-mail on Sunday mornings at 10:30 am. Please contact to be added to the circulation list. Also be aware that email addresses are shared so that we can greet one another as we come 'into church' and chat together after the service.


This year Bible Month focuses on the Book of Ruth, a short and sometimes overlooked story that shows God's faithfulness to a Moabite woman who travels to Israel.
In earlier years many of our churches have followed this initiative and you may wish to continue this practice of worship and study even though we may be locked out of our churches.
Resources were planned for a Circuit training day and these are now available here.

Seasons BookletSEASONS booklet PDF - Resources for 4 Services produced by SCALLOP

Here is a resource for Local Worship produced by SCALLOP Churches.
It is a booklet with IDEAS for a series of 4 services based on "Seasons", each of which can be presented by worship leaders or the local church.
These are suggestions and the outlines are not comprehensive, but it is hoped they might provide a starting place!

Print on both sides - flip on short edge - then fold into a booklet.
