Please note:  Because of the current COVID situation and the decree from the mayor, we will not be meeting at ARDA this week.  Instead, we invite you to access our online Worship Resources linked below.

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.

If you aren't able to join us face to face, due to Covid19 restrictions or any other reason you are encouraged to use the Worship Resources provided here (click on this link)* in your homes.

*Resources will be updated a few days before the service.



Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
Hebrews 4:14-16

Collect

Almighty God,
in our baptism
you adopted us for your own.
Quicken your Spirit within us,
that we, being renewed both in body and mind,
may worship you in sincerity and truth
and serve you with thankfulness of heart;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns
with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
