Singing to God’s glory
The Temple in our time
ALMIGHTY God, who rulest over all the kingdoms of the world: Accept first, we beseech thee, our most hearty thanks for the whole life and reign and service of our late most gracious Sovereign Lady, Queen ELIZABETH; As thou replenished her here on earth with the grace of thy Holy Spirit, and endued her plenteously with heavenly gifts, so bring her at her last awakening into the house and gate of heaven. where there shall be no darkness nor dazzling but one equal light, no ends nor beginnings but one equal eternity in the habitations of thy glory, world without end. So too at this time we offer thee our unfeigned thanks, for that thou hast set thy Servant our Sovereign Lord King CHARLES, upon the Throne of this Realm. Let thy wisdom be his guide, and let thine arm strengthen him; let truth and justice, peace and charity, abound in his days; direct all his counsels and endeavours to thy glory and to the welfare of his subjects; and crown him with everlasting life in the world to come; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Welcome to our new legal term and legal year. We will give thanks for Her Late Majesty and ask for God’s blessing on His Majesty The King at CHORAL EVENSONG, 5 October, 6.00pm. This service will be live-streamed on the Church's YouTube Channel.
