Remember thou art dust, and unto dust thou shalt return (Sentence for Ash Wednesday)

Blow the trumpet in Zion,
Order a fast,
Call a solemn assembly;
Gather the people,
Sanctify the congregation,
Assemble the elders,
Gather the children and nursing babes;
Let the bridegroom go out from his chamber,
And the bride from her dressing room.
Let the priests, who minister to the Lord,
Weep between the portico and the altar;
Let them say, “Spare Your people, O Lord,
And do not give Your heritage to reproach,
That the nations should rule over them.
Why should they say among the peoples,
‘Where is their God?’”
(Joel 2:15-17)

Lord Jesus, think on me,
and purge away my sin,
From earth-born passions set me free,
and make me pure within
(hymn, Bp Synesius)

Fr Danny's impactful sermon will shortly be available under the Sermons page!

'O Come, Emmanuel: Preparing for Christmas' is our annual service of music and readings for Advent, the church season preceding Christmas. The music includes congregational hymns and choral music sung by the Choir of Christ Church, directed by George King. This year our music includes a first performance at Christ Church of Jonathan Harvey's 2011 setting of Edwin Muir's poem 'The Annunciation', together with James Macmillan's 'O radiant dawn', Gabriel Jackson's 'Tomorrow go ye forth', William Byrd's 'Vigilate' and other works for Advent. All are welcome, and as this is a service there is no charge for admission, though a generous donation in the collection to the parish would be appreciated. Parking is under guard.
