7th Sunday after Trinity 2024 (Online Holy Communion)

Occuring
for 5 days, 14 hours, 59 mins
Venue
Address

We continue our journey through the season of "Ordinary Time", but there is nothing ordinary about this period of the Churches year. It is called this simply because the weeks of Ordinary Time are numbered. The Latin word 'ordinalis', refers to numbers in series, from which we get the English word 'order'.

The numbered weeks represent the ordered life of the Church - a period in which we live our lives neither in feasting (as in the Christmas and Easter seasons), nor in reflection or penance (as in the seasons of Advent and Lent), instead the Church focuses on growth and renewal, and looks forward in expectation of of the second coming of Christ.

Our services in our churches continue as normal, however, we recognise that through ill health, frailty, or infirmity, not everyone is able to join us every week. Therefore, if you are unable to attend in person, you are warmly invited to join in with our Curate, The Revd Dr Karen Smith as she celebrates Holy Communion from the Vicarage.

The readings for today are Amos 7:7-15, Ephesians 1:3-14, and Mark 6:14-29.

The hymns for today are, Rise and hear! The Lord is speaking, and All-creating heavenly giver.

A service booklet to accompany this service is also available to download below, alternatively please email [email protected] to receive a copy automatically each week.
