HOLY TRINITY & ST AUGUSTINE
Physical distance but still the Body of Christ
12th July 2020 FIFTH SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY
As we begin to gather again at Holy Trinity and St Augustine's for our usual Sunday services, we will still provide this remote service for those who are remaining at home. You can do this at 10am or 11am on Sunday morning, or whenever else is convenient. You may wish to light a candle as you begin the service.
There will be services at Holy Trinity 10am
and St Augustine's 11am this Sunday.
We will be reviewing the future of the online service during July.
There will also be a test-run of a streamed service which will be live at 11am from St Augustine's on HERE
This Sunday is the Fifth Sunday after Trinity. We hear the parable of the sower and the invitation to make our lives the good soil of the life of the Spirit.
The scattered Church continues to live and move, pray and worship, serve and care, breath by breath, day by day.

Another meditation in a series of Bach variations on the chorale O Gott, du frommer Gott (O God, you righteous God). Each variation is a sort of meditation (if Bach dealt in meditations) on a verse of the original hymn. Today a prayer for peace and prosperity.
