An announcement from the Bishop

 

The Bishop of Worcester is pleased to announce the appointment of the Reverend Stephen Sealy as Priest in Charge (eventual Part-time non-stipendiary Incumbent) of the Benefice of Little Malvern.

 

Stephen is currently Associate Vicar of Wymondham with Spooner Row in the Diocese of Norwich. Prior to this, he had ministered in the dioceses of Rochester and Portsmouth and at Canterbury Cathedral.

 

A date for Stephen’s Licensing will be confirmed shortly.

 

Please remember Stephen in your prayers as he prepares to move.  

 

Following discussion with the Archdeacon of Worcester, Eric has agreed with the Lay Patron, Mrs Alex Berington that he will continue at Little Malvern Priory until his successor, the Revd Stephen Sealy is licensed.   Eric will then start his retirement.

5 TH JULY 2020 4TH SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY

 HOLY COMMUNION (CW) 

Readings: 
Romans Ch. 7 vs. 15 –25a 
Matthew Ch 11 vs. 16-19, 25 - end 

Collect: 
O God, the protector of all who trust in you, without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy: increase and multiply upon us your mercy; that with you as our ruler and guide we may so pass through things temporal that we lose not our hold on things eternal; grant this, heavenly Father, for our Lord Jesus Christ’s sake, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. 
Amen 

Post Communion 
Eternal God, comfort of the afflicted and healer of the broken, you have fed us at the table of life and hope: teach us the ways of gentleness and peace, that all the world may acknowledge the kingdom of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen 

NOTES 
We are planning a service in church on 5th July at 11.00 am. 
We will be making the necessary provisions so that everyone can feel safe. 
Those are; sanitising gel and social distancing on the path and in the church. 

It will be a service of Holy Communion. 
At the administration of the Communion you will only be offered the bread and that will take place at the bottom of the first step to the altar rail. You are free to come just for a Blessing if you prefer. Just keep your hands by your sides. You are also free to remain in your seats. 

The sidespeople will guide you in the church to your seat and into and out of the Chancel for Communion. 
We are not allowed to sing hymns.
It will seem a little strange but hopefully none-the-less a service of worship offered to God. 
A recording of the sermon will be on the Website and on Eric’s Facebook page. 
There will be an order of Service for you to take away with you. Please keep it & try to remember to bring it to the next Holy Communion (CW) service

Sermon 

Eric is recording a Sermon each week so that we can remain in isolation but still have our own form of worship at home.  To hear the sermon, switch sound on on you computer or phone and click Sermon above  or click on the facebook address below to both hear and see him.  To hear him you then have to click on the loudspeaker symbol at the bottom right corner of his picture. To return to the website you have to click on the left facing arrow at the top left hand edge of the computer screen.  It is not as complicated as it seems.
