The Sunday Eucharist Service 17th October, 2021 – 20th 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 104

At your rebuke, O Lord, the waters fled

1 Bless the Lord, o my soul. O Lord my God, how excellent is your greatness! 2 You are clothed with majesty and honour, wrapped in light as in a garment.

3 You spread out the heavens like a curtain and lay the beams of your dwelling place in the waters above. 4 You make the clouds your chariot and ride on the wings of the wind.

5 You make the winds your messengers and flames of fire your servants. 6 You laid the foundations of the earth, that it should never move at any time.

7 You covered it with the deep like a garment; the waters stood high above the hills. 8 At your rebuke they fled; at the voice of your thunder they hastened away.

9 They rose up to the hills and flowed down to the valleys beneath, to the place which you had appointed for them. 10 You have set them their bounds that they should not pass, nor turn again to cover the earth.

35 I will sing to the Lord as long as I live; I will make music to my God while I have my being.

At your rebuke, O Lord, the waters fled

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.
