Service for Sunday 5th July

our Preacher for Sunday, July 5th is Charles.  Thank you.

The Intercessions for today are by myself.

Intercessions

Gracious God,
give skill, sympathy and resilience
to all who are caring for the sick,
and your wisdom to those searching for a cure.
Strengthen them with your Spirit,
that through their work many will be restored to health;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Gracious God,
help me to trust you,
help me to know that you are with me,
help me to believe that nothing can separate me 
from your love
revealed in Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Gracious God,
We pray for those in our congregation and community who are in need,
For those who are ill, both physically and mentally,
For those suffering financially
For those caught up in addiction
For those who have lost all hope
Amen

Gracious God,
Help us, your believers, and disciples to follow you,
To be people who speak words of hope and peace,
To be people who act in love and not judgement,
To be those who bring light into dark situations,
To your praise and glory
Amen

Other News

Wath Parish Church will be open for the following hours;

Sunday 10 am – 12 noon

Wednesday 2 – 4 pm

Please note there will be certain restrictions, but both myself & Charles will be present.

I hope & pray that you are all well & are managing to keep in contact with others, via various means. 

Tomorrow there is Sunday Worship at 8.10 am on Radio 4.

On BBC 1 Sunday Worship seems to have disappeared from the schedule still!

Thankfully, Songs of Praise is still with us at 1.15 pm, where my favourite presenter,  Kathryn Jenkins meets the Archbishop of Canterbury to discuss the NHS.

A range of services can be found via the St Peter’s link

Church of England virtual Services can be found here

Also, the Church of England has a free national phone line to provide a simple way that praise and worship can enter people’s homes.  Daily Hope, which is available, offers music, prayers and reflections as well as full worship services from the Church of England at the end of a telephone line.

The line – which is available 24 hours a day on 0800 804 8044 – has been set up particularly with those unable to join online church services during the period of restrictions in mind.

Evening Prayer will continue to be put on to our YOUTUBE channel on Monday & Wednesday evenings.     If anyone wants to join in then please contact me & I will print a copy off & deliver it, or send you one electronically.

Our Parish Prayer meeting will once again be held on this coming Tuesday at 2 pm, I will send out the link.  As before you can pray a pre-prepared prayer, read one you have found, or just enjoy listening, knowing that God is with us as we gather.  Please feel free to send in prayer requests to me.

We shall be holding another ‘Coffee & Quiz’ gathering on Thursday afternoon at 1.30 pm.   It is good to just see other people & to partake in a bit of fun & laughter. 

Once again, if you or anyone you know is in need please get in contact with me.

 

Every Blessing

John
