Church Bulletin (blog edition) Trinity 8

St. Michael the Archangel

Anglican Church

Visitors – Welcome!

Peace and joy in our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.  Please advise us of your visit and ask for a “First Time Visitor Bulletin” which briefly explains the communion service.  Please join our church family in the Parish Hall after the service for fellowship, drinks, and food.

Holy Communion:

If you have been confirmed by a Bishop in Apostolic Succession, you are invited to receive the Blessed Sacrament.  If not, but are a Baptized Christian, please come to the Altar Rail for a blessing (simply cross your arms over your chest when the Celebrant approaches.)  If you have questions, please speak to the clergy.

Prelude                                                Choral Song                          Samuel Sebastian Wesley


(Psalm 48:9-10) We have thought of Thy lovingkindness, O God, in the midst of Thy temple. According to Thy Name, O God, so is Thy praise unto the ends of the earth: Thy right hand is full of righteousness. (Psalm 48:1) Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised: in the city of our God, in the mountain of His holiness.

The Gradual Hymn #463 is a poem from 1762 by Charles Wesley, based on Leviticus 6:13: “The fire shall ever be burning upon the altar; it shall never go out.” The tune is by his grandson Samuel Sebastian Wesley (1810-1876), prominent organist, composer and church music reformer.


(Psalm 18:27, 31a) For Thou wilt save the afflicted prophet; but wilt bring down high looks.  For who is God, save the Lord?


Anthem                               My Spirit Longs for Thee                  Richard Shephard


My spirit longs for Thee within my troubled breast,

Though I unworthy be of so divine a guest.

Yet has my heart no rest, unless it come from Thee.

In vain I look around: In all that I can see

No rest is to be found, but in Thy blessed love.

O let my wish be crowned, and send it from above!


Richard Shephard (b.1949), choral/opera/orchestral composer and Chamberlain of York Minster, set this poem (related to the Scripture readings today) by John Byrom (1692-1763), English poet (including Hymn #16). Byrom was the inventor of a system of shorthand and teacher of John and Charles Wesley, Anglican priests who began the Methodist movement.

Postlude                              March in G                                                          J. B. Cramer

Johann Baptist Cramer (1771-1858), German-born Englishman who, alongside Beethoven, was considered the greatest pianist of his time. The organ  arrangement is by Frank Asper (1892-1973), Mormon Tabernacle organist.
