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.

*Resources will be updated later in the week.


"Surely you remember, brothers and sisters, our toil and hardship; we worked night and day in order not to be a burden to anyone while we preached the gospel of God to you. You are witnesses, and so is God, of how holy, righteous and blameless we were among you who believed. For you know that we dealt with each of you as a father deals with his own children, encouraging, comforting and urging you to live lives worthy of God, who calls you into his kingdom and glory".  1 Thessalonians 2:9-12


The lectionary readings for this twenty-second Sunday after Pentecost are:

Psalm: Psalm 43
First reading:  Micah 3:5-12
Second reading: 1 Thessalonians 2:9-13
Gospel:  Matthew 23:1-12


The Collect:

Almighty God,
your servant Abraham obeyed your call,
rejoicing in your promise
that in him all the families of the earth
should be blessed.
Give us faith like his,
that in us your promises may be fulfilled;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns
with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
