A Short Service (2nd August 2020)

This short service (10 minutes) comprises the first part of the service of Holy Communion (sometimes known as 'ante-communion'). I've described it as the Liturgy of the Word, and the service ends after the intercessions. It is suggested that when you follow it you pause at the Bible reading and read today's Epistle and Gospel yourselves - so you'll need your Bible to hand!

The readings to go with the Lammastide sermon (see in margin) are 2 Corinthians 9: 6 - 11 and Matthew 14: 13 - 21. It is suggested you also pause the video during the intercessions so you can take time to pray your own prayers - there are three opportunities to do this.

I'm offering this format so that, while public worship is suspended, it can be re-used but with different readings and prayers. Thank you to Alison and Lewis for the sung Gloria, to Alison for participating in the liturgy, and to Lizzie for producing the service. The images of stained glass are all from our local village churches.
