Seeking and Sharing the Fullness of Life

Scroll down for video recordings of several of the 2020 liturgies. The schedule of SYCBaps worship and prayer online for Holy Week 2020 was as follows:

Monday – Wednesday
8:00am Matins (Morning prayer and share)
5:00pm Vespers (Early evening prayer and share)
This week Vespers was about 5mins longer than usual, because there are special additional Holy Week scripture readings
9:30pm Compline (Nighttime prayer and share)

Maundy Thursday
8:00am Matins (Morning prayer and share)
5:00pm The Maundy Thursday Liturgy
This is a major liturgy, the first part of the great three day liturgy. This one focuses on the story of Jesus’s last supper with his followers before his arrest and trial, and in particular on the story of the call to servanthood symbolised in foot washing.

Good Friday
8:00am Matins (Morning prayer and share)
5:00pm The Great Friday Liturgy
The second part of the great three day liturgy. This one focuses on the story of the cross, Jesus’s execution.

Holy Saturday
8:00am A special Matins known as the Prayers for the Day of Nothingness
8:00pm The Great Paschal Vigil
The third part of the great three day liturgy. Our biggest and most spectacular liturgy of the year was big online too. We even had a visiting preacher, Pastor Joel Sierra, live from Monterrey México, and we celebrated Eucharist in the Cyber Chapel for the first time.

Resurrection Sunday
10:30am Resurrection Brunch Liturgy
Unfortunately we couldn’t hold our usual Yarra boat cruise to Herring Island for prayers and brunch. But we were still able to pray together, and we still ate brunch together in an online gathering. Those who took their computers or tablets into their kitchen or BBQ area were even able to cook together!
5:00pm Vespers (Early evening prayer and share)
About 5mins longer than usual, because there are special additional Easter scripture readings
