The Sunday Eucharist Service – 24th January 2021

All are warmly welcome! We hold our services in la Iglesia de San Miguel, Plaza Andalucia, Nerja. Please note this is not the church near the Balcon de Europa – El Salvador! Plaza Andalucia is an easy walk from the first large roundabout on the main road (after the bridge -coming from Torrox). But do take a map with you! Our Eucharist service begins at 12 noon.

PSALM 128

Happy is everyone who fears the Lord

  1 Happy is everyone who fears the Lord,

who walks in his ways.

2 You shall eat the fruit of the labour of your hands;

you shall be happy, and it shall go well with you.

3 Your wife will be like a fruitfulvine within your house;

your children will be like olive shoots around your table.

4 Thus shall the man be blessed

who fears the Lord.

5 The Lord bless you from Zion.

May you see the prosperity of Jerusalem

all the days of your life.

6 May you see your chilren’s children.

Peace be upon Israel.

Happy is everyone who fears the Lord

CHURCH SHOP

The Church Shop is now open. Please come and support us!

Remember that we are entirely self-supporting as a church community and we need regular income from the shop for us to pay our way. If you would like to help in the shop please contact either Brian or Diane Elliott in church after the service here in Nerja.

WEDNESDAY ZOOM EUCHARIST SERVICE

Please remember that there is a Zoom Eucharist service every Wednesday at 9.30am until we are able to return to having the services in Church Shop. Please let Fr Nigel or John Hodgson, the Churchwarden, have your e-mail details if you would like to join us.

An e-mail containing the readings for the first 3 months of 2021 has been sent to everyone who is on our ‘Zoom’ list. If you have not received this e-mail or would like to receive it, please contact either Fr Nigel or John Hodgson, the Churchwarden after the midday service in San Miguel, Nerja.

THURSDAY PRAYERS + MEDITATION

We pray for the Church, our community’s future and our own walk with God. It takes place on the ‘Zoom’ platform.
