Trinity 11

23 to 29 August 2020

God of glory,
the end of our searching,
help us to lay aside
all that prevents us from
seeking your kingdom,
and to give all that we have
to gain the pearl beyond all price,
through our Saviour Jesus Christ.

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 most weekdays, a short service of Daily Prayer is published. A midweek service of Holy Communion is on Wednesday.

The short Daily Reflections by Revd Stephen based on the reading in each weekday service will restart in September.

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 daily reflections or sermons, use the Reflections menu. Alternatively, click a date on the calendar below to list the items published that day.
