A BISHOP'S Waltham church has joined hundreds up and down the country in giving online services.

As people are encouraged to stay at home amidst the coronavirus pandemic, St Peter's Church has been live streaming on Facebook.

Reverend James Hunt has pledged to lead a service every morning possible.

He sits in front of his camera and proceeds as he usually would, in an attempt to allow people to connect with the church whilst following Government guidelines.

The services have so far received positive feedback.

Carol Pither commented: "Thank you James. So important to be connected. I'm working from home in my crisis role for AIM. Work is hard and this is a blessed opportunity to pause, pray and be connected."

Liz Webb commented: "Thank you Hunt family- that was just wonderful! Really feel like I’ve been to church today!"
