Anglican Group in Second Life

18th-june-07_007.jpgThe Anglican Group in Second Life is a new, fresh expression of doing church and of being Anglican. It respects the past and connects with the present.

Presently it involves 5 services being offered each week, catering for the major time zones. A Bible study is also offered.

The Group numbers more than 300 and is led by a leadership team of 8 chaired by Rocky Vallejo. I am Licenced as Deacons Assistant to the group by the Bishop of Wellington in New Zealand.

For more information on the Anglican Group in SL click here for the blog.

Services for the week starting the 6th of January 2008


cath_005.jpgEach service is held at the Anglican Cathedral of Second Life. The service is offered in text and voice format and where a message is preached, it will be in audio format.

After the service we have a time of fellowship where you can meet people from around the world. And the service leader is on hand if your require prayer or need to chat something through.

If you are new to Second Life you are most welcome!!

Hello Mark,

just thought I’d post one SL snapshot… The title could be:

“Will we be seeing signs again in virtual riality?”

Also you on Facebook? There is now a Facebook Group: Anglicans in SL.

I think the presence of the Anglican Church on SL is a good thing. People in SL speak mostly of sex and money. It’s not vain to remind them of other realities. Of course, there is not “real” parish work going on in SL. But what Jesus did in his times was not “real” Temple work either.
