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.

Faith without action is dead

What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.  James 2:14-17

Psalm:  Psalm 146
First Reading:  Proverbs 22:1-2; 8-9; 22-23

Collect:

Stir up, O Lord,

the wills of your faithful people,

that richly bearing the fruit of good works,

we may by you be richly rewarded;

through Jesus Christ our Lord,

who is alive and reigns

with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.
