Trinity 13

Almighty God,

you search us and know us:

may we rely on you in strength

and rest on you in weakness,

now and in all our days;

through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

                       Additional  Collect for this Sunday

Welcome to St Paul’s Church

This leaflet will give you information about the services today and and also what else is happening in the parish over the next few weeks.

Holy Communion (Book of Common Prayer) 8.30 am.

Sung Eucharist 10.30 am

If you require a large print hymn book or order of service or other leaflets, please ask one of the sidespeople.  There is a loop system in operation in the church for those who wear hearing-aids.

There is a Sunday school in the hall next door, children leave during the first hymn and return halfway during the service at the Peace. There is no crèche but parents and carers are welcome to look after very young children in the narthex area at the back of church at any time during the service. We welcome back Hector Leung who will accompany us on the piano while David is on holiday. The preacher today is the Rector.  Everyone is warmly invited to stay for a cup of tea or coffee after the service.
