“Who then is this, that he commands even the winds and the water, and they obey him?”

 Luke 8, verse 25.



A warm welcome is offered to all attending the services in the churches of this Chaplaincy.

We offer a special welcome to visitors and newcomers and we hope the information on the back page will help you locate somebody to make you feel welcome and answer any questions you may have. Please join us in fellowship for a tea/coffee/soft drink after the service.


Introduction and Call to Worship

Our heavenly Father works with us in our weakness, teaching us through the challenges of life and helping our faith to grow. So let us come together and rejoice, for even when we fall short God never abandons us.



Almighty God, give us reverence for all creation and respect for every person, that we may mirror your likeness in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

                   88           Brother, sister, let me serve you, let me be as Christ to you;

Today’s Readings

First Reading Genesis 2:4b-9. 15-end

This passage tells us that God created people, animals and plant life and suggests that humanity has a special responsibility to care for God’s creation.

Second Reading Revelation 4

An incredible vision of heaven, in which John sees God seated on a throne, surrounded by twenty-four elders, worshipping God.

Gospel Luke 8:22-25

After travelling around teaching vast crowds of people, Jesus wants to sail across the Sea of Galilee to a quieter area. When a storm breaks out he calms the sea and the disciples are amazed.


Post Communion Prayer.

God our creator, by your gift the tree of life was set at the heart of the earthly paradise, and the bread of life at the heart of your Church: may we who have been nourished at your table on earth be transformed by the glory of the Saviour’s cross and enjoy the delights of eternity; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen


Introduction to the Peace.

Whatever troubles life brings our way, we can know peace in Christ. The peace of the Lord…



In the challenges that this week brings may your faith deepen as you turn to Christ for help, and receive the strength, comfort and wisdom that you need.

And the blessing of God almighty…
