A message from John Salmon:
PLEASE NOTE. IMPORTANT MESSAGE
In one of my other facebook groups Church Crawlers Anonymous I have arranged a visit for those that are interested. See below.
I have just confirmed that the CCA Visit to St John the Baptist, Holland Road, W14 8AH is all system go for Saturday 12th October. The church will be open at 11am. This is probably one of the top 10 churches in Greater London. do not miss this opportunity to join me.
We will be met by Fr Neal Traynor and he is also going to show us some of the collection of vestments as well.
This is an informal meeting when you can wander, photograph and marvel at your own pace.
It would be helpful if everyone who showed an interest would confirm whether they are coming and any who don't know about the visit will make themselves known.

Daily Devotionals

Daily devotionals come from three sources that you can choose from (or use all!), whether travelling to work, sitting and relaxing during a well deserved break, or making one of them a part of your daily 'quiet time' with God.

Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer and Night Prayer (or Compline) come from the Church of England's Common Worship which provides prayers and readings for different times during the day.

The daily readings are taken from The Revised Common Lectionary which divides the Bible into a three-year cycle of readings, years A, B and C.

Pray As You Go is a Jesuit based, audio resource that can be listened to anywhere.

Morning Prayer

Please click this link to be taken to today's Morning Prayer readings and prayers from the Church of England's Common Worship.

Evening Prayer

Please click this link to be taken to today's Evening Prayer readings and prayers from the Church of England's Common Worship.

Compline

Please click this link to be taken to today's Night Prayer readings and prayers from the Church of England's Common Worship.

The daily readings are taken from The Revised Common Lectionary which divides the Bible into a three-year cycle of readings, years A, B and C. These readings complement the Sunday and festival readings: Thursday through Saturday readings help prepare the reader for the Sunday ahead; Monday through Wednesday readings help the reader reflect on and digest what they heard in worship.

The Church year begins in Advent. This church year, 2018-2019, is year C.

we look forward to seeing you in church.
