Most merciful God,
who by the death and resurrection of your Son Jesus Christ
delivered and saved the world:
grant that by faith in him who suffered on the cross
we may triumph in the power of his victory;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen.
a few extracts from today’s psalm:
Out of the depths have I cried to you, O Lord;
Lord, hear my voice;
let your ears consider well the voice of my supplication.
If you, Lord, were to mark what is done amiss,
O Lord, who could stand?
But there is forgiveness with you,
so that you shall be feared.
I wait for the Lord; my soul waits for him;
in his word is my hope.

Part of Sunday Worship is giving our offerings to God, in acts of service and financial support.
Here, is a message from the Standing Committee
A plea for help: Unfortunately, whilst the church is closed and we are unable to take a physical collection at a Sunday service, the bills still keep coming! If you are able, we would be very grateful if you could therefore consider making a donation, or pledging a regular amount, so that we can continue to operate in such difficult times. Payments can be made via TWINT or bank transfer (See payments page here). If you would like to pledge a regular amount, which helps us to plan and make best possible use of the income, please contact the Treasurer (in confidence) at firstname.lastname@example.org

Today’s Songs of Praise, on BBC1 television at 14:15 Swiss Time. In today’s special episode, Aled Jones speaks to the archbishop of York designate, the Right Revd Stephen Cottrell, about the Christian hope that can still be found despite the troubled times we’re currently in. The new archbishop shares how Bible stories, where people placed their hope in Jesus, still give him inspiration and comfort today. Aled also recalls recent episodes when he met those whose faith saw them through especially challenging times – a mother who survived the Grenfell Tower tragedy and Harry Billinge the Second World War veteran who survived the D-Day landings in 1940. Hymns on a theme of hope and reassurance come from around the UK. Archbishop designate Stephen Cottrell concludes the programme with a special prayer. Click here to watch.
