York Panorama

For Sale - Prints of York

Br David will be at the back of our church tomorrow to try to induce you to buy mounted prints of our city’s skyline, featuring the Minster and the Oratory, in aid of our bell tower. These fine artworks have been produced by the renowned, young artist Ben Keating, who is himself a bell ringer. A limited series of one hundred of these have been made, and, thanks to the artist’s generosity, all proceeds  will go towards a new carpet in the ringing chamber. Order forms are available at the back of church or by clicking here:

Before the eyes of all Israel


In Chapter 34 of Deuteronomy, Moses, whom the Lord knew face to face, sees the promised land from Mount Nebo, before he dies, and God buries him. This episode marks the end of Deuteronomy, and of the Torah - and is covered by the forty-ninth and final episode of Talking Heads, which you can watch here.

If you are still  hungry to know the Scriptures better, do not worry! You can watch all the episodes of Talking Heads here, and in the autumn the series continues - in the Upper Room, but we hope that videos of these live talks will also be available online. We shall be reading the Book of Joshua.
