Church Service on Sunday, October 17, 2021

Please note:  Because of the current COVID situation and government regulations, 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.

Note:  This Sunday will be an All-Age Harvest Service based around these texts instead of the ones listed below.

Francis Toms, Chalice.

Jesus said to them [James and John], “You will drink the cup I drink and be baptized with the baptism I am baptized with, but to sit at my right or left is not for me to grant. These places belong to those for whom they have been prepared.”

Mark 10:39

The readings for this twenty-first Sunday after Pentecost:

Psalm:  Psalm 104:1-9, 24, 35c
First Reading:  Job 38:1-7
Second Reading:  Hebrews 5:1-10
Gospel:  Mark 10:35-45


Almighty and ever-living God,
increase in us your gift of faith,
that forsaking what lies behind
and reaching out to what is before,
we may run the way of your commandments
and win the crown of everlasting joy;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns
with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
