one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Please can you read the readings (especially the New Testament and Gospel) and suggest themes for next week’s service. You can email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Regards and have a great week!
P.S. I’m afraid I can’t find a link to the lectionary online, but you can get a printed publication from the Anglican Diocesan office. Let me know if you want some help in getting one.
