Call to Worship (from Psalm 30 – see over)
Sing praise to the LORD, O you, his faithful ones,
AND GIVE THANKS TO HIS HOLY NAME
For his anger is but for a moment,
HIS FAVOUR IS FOR A LIFETIME.
Weeping may linger for the night,
BUT JOY COMES WITH THE MORNING.
Hear, O LORD, and be gracious to me.
O LORD, BE MY HELPER.
My soul will praise you and not be silent
O LORD, MY GOD, I WILL GIVE THANKS TO YOU FOR EVER!

Please speak to Jimmy Hudson if you can deliver CA donation (delivery only) envelopes in a part of our parish.
It would be helpful to know in advance approximately how many people are coming for the lunch. You can let Margot Hudson know at church or by email. However, if you make a last minute decision on the 15th May, please come along. We will be very happy to see you.
