Sunday Worship for 4th October 2020 – Harvest and the Festival of Shelters

We welcome you to our time of worship this morning, shared with the members of Fleet URC and Beacon Hill URC and those who join us from far and wide. You are all most welcome.

Our service is led by lay preacher Karen Smith from Beacon Hill URC. It is a joyful celebration of Harvest time, which has been recorded at the church, with a backdrop of the Harvest gifts donated for the Food Banks by members of the two churches. We mark the Festival of Shelters together, building and decorating our own version of a traditional booth. Together, we rejoice at God’s provision at Harvest time, knowing we can always rely on Him for His continued blessing and protection.

Special thanks to our readers, who are two of our young people from Fleet URC, and to everyone who contributed food for the Food Banks.

Following the recorded service we shall be celebrating Holy Communion at 11 am live on Zoom. Please contact our church secretary if you haven’t received your invitation. Please have a glass of wine/juice and some bread to hand ready for the service.

URC Audio Service

Every Sunday the URC Daily Devotions team sends out a church service in both written and audio format. This has the feel of a radio service, and is in familiar URC style.

This Sunday’s service is led by our own minister, Revd Ruth Dillon. Ruth explores the theme of the parable where the vineyard owner’s staff and, eventually his son, is beaten and murdered by the workers. Hymns include Beautiful City, Heavenly Salem from the 7th Century, John Bell and Graham Maule’s haunting Inspired by Love and Anger, Samuel Crossman’s evocative My Song is Love Unknown and Graham Kendrick’s hymn about justice God of the Poor.

The order of worship is here, and the recording of the service is here.
