Next before Advent

22 to 28 November 2020

God the Father,
help us to hear the call
of Christ the King
and to follow in his service,
whose kingdom has no end;
for he reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit,
one God, one glory.
Amen.

This Sunday is the Feast of Christ the King, the Sunday when the Corby Glen Group of Parishes traditionally holds a Service of Light, Hope and Remembrance to remember loved ones who have died. This year is no different. At 6pm Revd Stephen will lead a service over Zoom — for details, please see Services in the coming weeks. At the same time, for those unable to access Zoom, a specially prepared video of the Service of Light, Hope and Remembrance will be available on this website for watching at any time. We hope you will find these services helpful and supportive in this very difficult year.

Every day the Corby Glen Group Virtual Church offers a service of prayer and worship in text and audio format. The recordings can be subscribed to as podcasts, or simply listened to from this website (click the service title and scroll down for the order of service).

On Sunday, the service is one of Holy Communion, and includes a sermon.

On weekdays, a short service of Daily Prayer is published including a reflection on the day’s reading. The sermons and daily reflections are also available separately as well as integrated into the services.

A simple recorded service of Night Prayer (Compline) is available for listening to at the close of any day.

Towards the end of each week, a letter to parishioners is published.

To find particular services, use the Worship menu at the top of each page or the menu below. To find the standalone reflections or sermons, use the Reflections menu. Alternatively, click a date on the calendar below to list the items published that day.

If you know of anyone in our communities who does not have access to the internet but would like to have CDs of the services each week, please let Revd Stephen know.
