Welcome to our Sunday worship brought to our homes by Zoom. After the worship we can have a short chat together. There will be a Zoom service until the last Sunday of June. There is a new login address on the website for the Sundays of June 14th-28th.
Until the end of June there is a Zoom weekly Bible Study and a mid-week evening quiet reflection service. Both of these will resume at the start of September. The login address for the quiet evening worship 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 June. St. Paul’s is open again for its regular visiting times.
From July 5th the principal worship will be back in St. Paul’s Church. We are exploring the possibility of providing Zoom participation in the Sunday service from September onwards. Watch this space!
The preacher this morning is Fr. Leonard.
Priest: Grace, mercy and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
All: and also with you.
1 Awake, my soul, and with the sun
thy daily stage of duty run;
shake off dull sloth, and early rise
to pay thy morning sacrifice.
2 Lord, I my vows to Thee renew.
Disperse my sins as morning dew;
guard my first springs of thought and will,
and with Thyself my spirit fill.
3 Direct, control, suggest, this day,
all I design or do or say,
that all my pow’rs, with all their might,
in Thy sole glory may unite.
4 Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
praise Him all creatures here below;
praise Him above, ye heav’nly host;
praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
Deacon: Our Lord Jesus Christ said; the first commandment is this: Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God is the only Lord. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
All: Amen. Lord have mercy.
