Norwich churches join in UK-wide blessing

Norwich churches join in UK-wide blessing 

Two Norwich churches are among more than 65 churches and movements to have taken part in a nationwide blessing sung to the UK on YouTube. Keith Morris reports

Soul Church and St Thomas Norwich took part in The UK Blessing, when church members filmed themselves singing along to the song The Blessing
 
The individual recordings were then combined into a six-minute long video, which it is hoped will offer people comfort while churches buildings are closed during the coronavirus pandemic

“Our buildings may be closed but the church is alive,” proclaims the video, which has now been watched over 1.4m times in three days
 
The video says: “At this unique and challenging time in the United Kingdom over 65 churches and movements, representing hundreds of others, have come together online to sing a blessing over our land. Standing together as one, our desire is that this song will fill you with hope and encourage you”
