The Anglican Church in Greece – St Paul’s Athens
Welcome to our Eastertide Sunday worship brought to our homes by Zoom. After the worship we can have a short chat together. The hymns and other shared texts you might know by heart, or you can print out this service, or you may have a hymn book at home, or you may be happy to listen in silence.
There is now a Zoom weekly Bible Study and a mid-week evening quiet reflection service. The login address for the quiet evening service is on the website. To join the bible study please contact Fr. Leonard first on his own email. The Sunday worship login address remains the same throughout May. St. Paul’s is open again for its regular times from May 5th. Please see the website about public services beginning again.
The preacher this morning is Deacon Christine.
Zoom Sunday worship will continue until end of June, opening at 10.00hrs. There will be a short, said, Eucharist at St. Paul’s at 12noon each Sunday until the end of June. We are not back to normal yet!
Priest: Send forth your Spirit, O Lord, and renew the face of the earth.
Grace, mercy and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
All: and also with you.
Priest: Alleluia! Christ is risen
All: He is risen indeed. Alleluia!
1 Come down, O Love divine,
seek thou this soul of mine,
and visit it with thine own ardor glowing;
O Comforter, draw near,
within my heart appear,
and kindle it, thy holy flame bestowing.
2 O let it freely burn,
till earthly passions turn
to dust and ashes in its heat consuming;
and let thy glorious light
shine ever on my sight,
and clothe me round, the while my path illuming.
3 And so the yearning strong,
with which the soul will long,
shall far outpass the power of human telling;
for none can guess its grace,
till Love create a place
wherein the Holy Spirit makes a dwelling.
