The Sunday Eucharist Service 12th September, 2021 – 15th Sunday after Trinity

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 midday.

A reminder that our mid-week services have returned to normal.

There is a 9.30am on-line Zoom Holy Eucharist every Wednesday and a 6pm Compline service again on-line every Thursday.

PSALM 19

The commandment of the Lord is pure and gives light to the eyes

1 The heavens are telling the glory of God

and the firmament proclaims his handiwork.

2 One day pours out its song to another

and one night unfolds knowledge to another.

3 They have neither speech nor language

and their voices are not heard,

4 Yet their sound has gone out into all lands

and their words to the ends of the world.

5 In them has he set a tabernacle for the sun,

that comes forth as a bridegroom out of his chamber

and rejoices as a champion to run his course.

6 It goes forth from one end of the heavens and runs

to the very end again, and there is nothing hidden from its heat.

The commandment of the Lord is pure and gives light to the eyes

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. Please let Fr Nigel or John Hodgson, the Churchwarden, have your e-mail details if you would like to join us.

READINGS FOR WEDNESDAY’S ZOOM EUCHARIST

An e-mail containing the readings for the second 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 COMPLINE SERVICE

(An Order for Night Prayer)

Please remember we have started an on-line Compline service every Thursday beginning at 6pm. Compline is a service of quietness and reflection before rest at the end of the day. During the service we pray for the Church, our community’s future and our own walk with God. It takes place on the ‘Zoom’ platform. If you would like to take part and have not already given your e-mail to Fr Nigel, please do so (all those who take part in the Wednesday Eucharist have already been sent an on-line version of the service). There are also copies of the service booklet at the back of church.
