11 to 17 October 2020
God, our judge and saviour,
teach us to be open to your truth
and to trust in your love,
that we may live each day
in the salvation which is given
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
On Tuesday 6 October 2020 Revd Aron Donaldson was ordained priest by the Bishop of Grantham at St John’s Church, Corby Glen.
Revd Aron celebrated his first Holy Communion as a newly ordained priest at 10.30am on Sunday 11 October 2020 at St John’s Church, Corby Glen. Towards the end of the service, just before the Blessing and Dismissal, he gave us some First Communion Thank Yous.
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.
