Sunday 23/08/20 11th Sunday after Trinity (Proper 16)

You may not be able to come to the church services we are having at the moment so I hope that these are of use for Sunday mornings.  

We’ll be using the psalm, readings and prayers in our services so we will all be connecting.

Psalm      124

Hymn    Lord Jesus Christ, you have come to us

Reading     Romans 12: 1 – 8

Prayers including the collect and a prayer for nation during this Coronavirus pandemic:

God of glory, the end of our searching, help us to lay aside all that prevents us from seeking your kingdom, and to give all that we have to gain the pearl of great price, through our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen

Loving God, as your Son healed the sick and brought good news to the needy be with us this day. Loving Jesus as you taught us to ‘do unto others as you would have them do to you’ be with all the medical staff this day. Loving spirit, your gift is healing, bring your healing fire to our homes, our hospitals and our county, but most of all, be with us this day. Amen
