Online Worship on 24 October

In-church worship is pretty much back to normal but we aim also to continue to offer online worship here every week. This week the online service is led by Revd Nicholas Calver

Put thou thy trust in God,
In duty’s path go on;
Walk in his strength with faith and hope,
So shall thy work be done.

Commit thy ways to him,
Thy works into his hands,
And rest on his unchanging word,
Who heav’n and earth commands.

Though years on years roll on,
His cov’nant shall endure;
Though clouds and darkness hide his path,
The promised grace is sure.

Give to the winds thy fears;
Hope, and be undismayed:
God hears thy sighs and counts thy tears;
God shall lift up thy head.

Through waves and clouds and storms
His pow’r will clear thy way:
Wait thou his time; the darkest night

Shall end in brightest day.

Leave to his sov’reign sway
To choose and to command;
So shalt thou, wond’ring, own his way,
How wise, how strong his hand.

Paul Gerhardt (1607-1676)
Trans. John Wesley (1703-1791) and others

This is the day that the Lord has made.
We will rejoice and be glad in it.

Let us pray

Collect for the last Sunday after Trinity
Blessed Lord,
who caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning:
help us so to hear them,
to read, mark, learn and inwardly digest them
that, through patience, and the comfort of your holy word,
we may embrace and for ever hold fast
the hope of everlasting life,
which you have given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

Hear the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Mark.
Glory to you, O Lord.

The Gospel reading from Mark 10: 46 to end
by Sarah Prentice

This is the Gospel of the Lord.
Praise to you, O Christ.

by the Revd Nicholas Calver

Let us pray with confidence as our Saviour has taught us:

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come; thy will be done;
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory,
for ever and ever.


Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost, but now I’m found;
Was blind, but now I see.

‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
and grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come.
‘Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me,
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures.

When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we first begun.

vv 1-4 J Newton (1725-1807) alt.
