 “Weekly News” for



July 23rd 2017– TRINITY 6 (Proper 11)

          A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.


 Introduction to worship

God helps his people develop towards maturity with great leniency. This is because he loves us and he hopes that by his example we will learn the nature of real love.



Merciful God, you have prepared for those who love you

such good things as pass our understanding:

Pour into our hearts such love toward you

that we, loving you in all things and above all things,

may obtain your promises, which exceed all that we can desire;

through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen


READINGS (Lectionary Page 262/3 – Proper 11)

First Reading                                      Isaiah 44:6-8      

God constantly confirms his Lordship, and with faith, we have no fear of the future.


Second Reading:                              Romans 8:12-25

God has made us a new creation. We are no longer limited by the confines of the world and the flesh but united with the Spirit of God-in-Christ.


Gospel:                                                St. Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43

God’s kingdom is intended for all people, good and bad, growing together. Eventually, God will separate out those fit for his eternal kingdom.



God of our pilgrimage,

you have led us to the living water:

Refresh and sustain us as we go forward on our journey,

in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen


PLEASE, only use the car park if you really need to, we don’t want to see any cars getting damaged.  If you are using the car park for mid-week services, please park away from the church rooms area.  Any problems get in touch with your Churchwardens.  Thank you for your patience.

Sue & Linda.

THE CHILDREN’S SOCIETY COLLECTION BOXES –  Please will holders of boxes bring them to any service at the Parish Church this month, when they will be kept in the vestry until I can take them away for emptying, so the proceeds can be sent to the Society.  When emptied and re-labelled, I will return them to the back of the church for collecting by their holders.  I would be glad of people’s telephone numbers, the records of some of which now are wrong; also, if anyone cannot get to church, please ring me to arrange for it to be fetched.
