“Weekly News” for




5TH AFTER TRINITY (Proper 8) – SUNDAY JULY 1ST   2018  

A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.  Please take our love and prayers to your home parish.



Prophets are called to speak out, to provide insight to people who do not see clearly. May we be inspired to speak out in our lives for justice and truth.



Almighty and everlasting God,
by whose Spirit the whole body of the Church is governed and sanctified:
hear our prayer which we offer for all your faithful people,
that in their vocation and ministry
they may serve you in holiness and truth to the glory of your name;
through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.


READINGS  (Proper 8 – Page 611/614)

First Reading              Wisdom of Solomon 1:13-15; 2:23-24

God wills eternal life for all his creation.


Second Reading           2 Corinthians 8:7-end

St. Paul urges Christians to be generous with one another.


Gospel                         St. Mark 5: 21-end

The healing touch of Jesus creates new life from torment and tragedy.



Grant, O Lord, we beseech you,
that the course of this world may be so peaceably ordered
by your governance,

that your Church may joyfully serve you in all godly quietness;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen



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 that 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 shall be glad of people’s telephone numbers, the records of some of which are now wrong; also, if anyone cannot get to church, please ring me to arrange for it to be fetched.
