WELCOME TO OUR WORSHIP
EIGHTH SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY
COLLECT. Almighty Lord and everlasting God, we beseech you to direct, sanctify and govern both our hearts and bodies in the way of your laws and the works of your commandments; that through your most mighty protection, both here and ever, we may be preserved in body and soul; through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
PRAYER AFTER COMMUNION. Strengthen for service, Lord, the hands that have taken holy things; may the ears which have heard your word be deaf to clamour and dispute; may the tongues which have sung your praise be free from deceit; may the eyes which have seen the tokens of your love shine with the light of hope and may the bodies which have been fed with your body be refreshed with the fullness of your life; glory to you for ever. Amen.
