Church Services on Sunday, August 11, 2019

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.

Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. 
This is what the ancients were commended for.

By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, 
so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.

Hebrews 11:1-3

The lectionary readings for this ninth Sunday after Pentecost are:

First Reading- Genesis 15:1-6

The collect for this Sunday is:

Almighty God,
you sent your Holy Spirit
to be the life and light of your Church.
Open our hearts to the riches of your grace,
that we may bring forth the fruit of the Spirit
in love, joy, and peace;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who is alive and reigns
with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.
