 Fr Dennis Obidieguru of the Tangiers Chaplaincy who has recently suffered a stroke. Please also pray for Antonia, his wife, + the Chaplaincy as a whole.

As the Brexit debate rages in parliament and we still await clarity, one way or another, as to the future of ex-pats living in Spain, the PCC suggests that those who are concerned go on to the following website for the latest information – www.gov.uk. There is a Brexit link on the home page and up to date info on how to prepare for Brexit if you live in the EU.

You can always ask to talk with Fr Nigel about this issue in all confidence. Or alternatively, share your concerns with other members of the congregation. A positive solution for all concerned, particularly the half million Brits living in Europe, has to be at the heart of our prayers over the next few weeks.


This year’s AGM will take place on Sunday October 13th at 13.30 in the Lower School Room immediately beneath San Miguel Church (entrance to the rear of the church, off the narrow one way street).

The electoral roll for both churches will be on display on the noticeboard at the rear of church, where there will also be a copy of the Church Representation Rules.

Psalm 79

 Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of your name

O God, the heathen have come into your heritage;

your holy temple have they defiled and made Jerusalem a heap of stones.

The dead bodies of your servants they have given to be food for the birds of the air,

and the flesh of your faithful to the beasts of the field.

Their blood have they shed like water on every side of Jerusalem,

and there was no one to bury them.

We have become the taunt of our neighbours,

The scorn and derision of those that are round about us.

Lord how long will you be angry, for ever?

How long will your jealous fury blaze like the fire?

 Pour out your wrath upon the nations that have not known you,

and upon the kingdoms that have not called upon your name.

For they have devoured Jacob and laid waste his dwelling place.

Remember not against us our forefathers’ iniquities,

let your compassion make haste to meet us for we are brought very low.

Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of your name;

Deliver us, and wipe away our sins for your name’s sake.

Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of your name
