Psalm 17

Read by Ramanee Bengough


Our opening hymn is “Give thanks”, from BBC Songs of Praise recorded in Warwick Road United Reformed Church in Coventry.

Bible Readings

Please listen to our Bible readings, which include subtitles.

Matthew chapter 14, verses 13-21 read by Dorothy Drummond

Romans chapter 9, verses 1-9 read by Mike Duffy


by Rev Anita Kerr, which has subtitles.


Let us respond by listening to that verse from Christina Rosetti, “What can I give Him?” sung by choir of King’s College, Cambridge.


Our prayers are led by John Dent.

Let us say together …

Our Father, who art in heaven
hallowed be thy name,
thy kingdom come, thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread
and forgive us our debts
as we forgive our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory,


Our final hymn is “Here I am Lord”.


We normally say the words of the Grace to each other. We say them now to whoever is with us, and to everyone we have thought about during this time of worship.

May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all, now and evermore. Amen.

Final music

Westminster Abbey by Purcell played on our church organ
