Church Services on Sunday, October 8, 2017

Welcome to the website of the Church of the Holy Spirit, an international group of believers and seekers from many different backgrounds, sharing together the Good News of the Lord Jesus Christ.

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday.  Please go to our Visitor's Information page for service details including information about our Sunday School program and Child Protection Policy.

Restore us, God Almighty; 
make your face shine on us, that we may be saved.
You transplanted a vine from Egypt; 
you drove out the nations and planted it.
You cleared the ground for it, 
and it took root and filled the land.
The mountains were covered with its shade, 
the mighty cedars with its branches.
Its branches reached as far as the Sea, its shoots as far as the River.
Why have you broken down its walls so that all who pass by pick its grapes?
Boars from the forest ravage it, and insects from the fields feed on it.
Return to us, God Almighty!   
Look down from heaven and see!
Watch over this vine, the root your right hand has planted, 
the son you have raised up for yourself.                                        Psalm 80:7-15
