Bourne Abbey and Parish Church
Sunday 18 June 2017
First Sunday After Trinity
Please pray for:
The parish and deanery: for Father Chris and Fr. Peter Lister, and for the Ministry Team. For the North Beltisloe benefice and the Colsterworth Group both in their vacancies.
Peace and goodwill within and between nations: especially for peace between Israel and Palestine: For the people in Iraq in their struggles against the ‘Islamic State’ forces. We also pray for the continuing situations in the Ukraine and in Yemen; and for those in refugee camps for the displaced from these areas.
We remember those suffering hunger, disease and oppression; especially those people suffering from shortage of food, water and medicines, particularly in Syria, Nigeria, South Sudan, Yeman, Somalia and Kenya; for those in our own country who are homeless and in need of support, especially the victims and all those involved in the Grenfell Tower fire in London.
For those whose illness or recovery is long term:
- Jean Livesey, Paul Mason, Patricia Fagan, Fr. John Francis, Rosemary Hopkins, Lorraine Etches, Sadie Pick, Peggy Selby, Peggy Pateman, Joyce Reeson, Noreen Evans, Georgie Pugh, Freda Danby and Jasmine Farrow.
For those whose illness is acute, or are awaiting operation: - Margaret Shaw, and Jean Gagne
For those recently added to our prayer board:
- Diana, Helen, Jean, Dick, Isaac and Sally.
- for the recently departed: SheilaLee and Eric Munsey.
- also for those whose anniversaries fall during this week: Phyllis Sheffield (18th), and Anthony Saunders (24th)
We welcome all to our services today, including those newly resident in our town and those visiting. If you are a visitor and receive Communion in your own church, you are most welcome to receive the Sacrament here. If you wish to receive a blessing instead, please bring your service sheet with you when you come up to the altar.
Services this week:
Today - 8.00am Said Eucharist (trad. CW)
- 10.00am Sung Eucharist (CW)
- 6.30pm Choral Evensong
Thursday - 10.00am Said Eucharist (BCP) – Birth of St John the Baptist
See external noticeboard and this website for details of Morning and Evening Prayer and times of funeral services and other events in the Abbey.
Please note there will be no 10am Sung Eucharist service next Sunday (June 25). Instead there will be an 11am Civic Service when we welcome the town's new mayor Coun Paul Fellows, members of the town counil and there guests.
