Let me try and explain the objectives of this new daily online office.

 

There are several expressions of online church out there already,

some with regard to physical or intellectual accessibility,

others that are so specific to a particular disability

that they are in danger of simply becoming a ghetto

of that individuals disability.

 

What we are striving to envision is an online community

that brings together a cross section of the whole church,

not individual disabilities, not even all disabilities

but everyone of all abilities.

 

What we have learned from our presence on Twitter

is that so many people feel spiritually isolated,

that even when you use such online services as there are,

you have no sense of being part of a wider community.

 

People are looking to get something of the feeling of belonging

they would hope to receive if they were physically part of an

active church community.

 

To create such a community online is our dream.

 

What we are most definitely NOT trying to do is

create an online community for disabled people only.

 

It must become a space used by everyone if disabled people

are to feel truly integrated in to something bigger.

 

In order to achieve this we have written what we hope

are three simple yet hopefully inspiring liturgies,

morning, midday and night, they are available here

in clear print, video, audio  and Makaton formats.

 

Your participation will be logged and counted so that you

will be able to see how many others have prayed that

session alongside you.

 

Each session has a short reflection, usually captioned video and ends with a

blessing which may be text, audio or video.

We welcome any comments regarding usability,

just drop us an email – webmaster@anordinaryoffice.org.uk

I’ve just subscribed to the Ordinary Office, and it’s superb. I’m a wheelchair user and Reader in the C of E, and have longed for such a Liturgy.
Thank you very much to everyone who’s worked so hard to make the Ordinary Office possible
