Collect for the Tenth Sunday after Trinity
Let your merciful ears, O Lord, be open to the prayers of your humble servants; and that they may obtain their petitions make them to ask such things as shall please you; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen


This morning’s 0930am service will be live-streamed. Please note that the camera is at the left-hand side of the church.

The playing of the organ voluntary shortly before the service is an indication that we should fall quiet and prepare for worship; this is even more relevant with live streaming, as anyone listening from home can hear what is being said!

The current system is temporary, with a more permanent system, with different camera and microphone positions, due around the end of August.

Services in the Parish Church: Not everything is back to normal!

Please bring your face mask and be prepared to wear it – this will help to protect you and your neighbours while the Covid virus remains a matter for concern nationally and locally.

Communion is presently in the form of bread alone. In the Parish Church, please enter by the North Door, & exit via the West Door.

The Church will be open daily for private prayer between 10.00am and 3.00pm.

The Gloria. The choir have sung an alternative Gloria on some Sundays recently. The more familiar version will not be abandoned, and will indeed be used during August. Then, in September, the congregation will be rehearsed with an alternative and, following a trial, a decision made as to which versions will be used going forward.

Donations for Stonepillow and Food Banks are starting up again. Please put items in the boxes at the back of the church. Please donate food such as basic provisions, tins, tea, coffee and cereals. as well as toiletries and unused socks and pants. You may be able to put in something a little extra. We will ensure it all gets to Stonepillow and local food banks. Thank you. Robina Richter
