  • Newport Minster Zoom Church

    Every Sunday since the Coronavirus crisis began, the congregation of Newport Minster have gathered online to worship, listen to the Gospel, pray, share the Peace and take part in a Spiritual Communion together. We do this by Zoom conferencing.

    The service starts at 11:00am, takes about 20 minutes and then there is the opportunity to chat, if you want to. This Sunday the hymns will be 'Lord of all hopefulness, Lord of all joy' and 'Praise my soul the King of Heaven'.

    Anyone and everyone is welcome to join us. If you would like to join us, please contact us. You can do this by sending us a direct message or emailing vicar@newportminster.org or media@newportminster.org. We will then make arrangements for you to join us. Please allow us plenty of time to respond and make the arrangements.
