Below you can find the whole of our Sunday service, or some of its individual parts.
7 Tychicus will tell you all the news about me. He is a dear brother, a faithful minister and fellow servant in the Lord. 8 I am sending him to you for the express purpose that you may know about our circumstances and that he may encourage your hearts. 9 He is coming with Onesimus, our faithful and dear brother, who is one of you. They will tell you everything that is happening here.
10 My fellow prisoner Aristarchus sends you his greetings, as does Mark, the cousin of Barnabas. (You have received instructions about him; if he comes to you, welcome him.) 11 Jesus, who is called Justus, also sends greetings. These are the only Jews among my co-workers for the kingdom of God, and they have proved a comfort to me. 12 Epaphras, who is one of you and a servant of Christ Jesus, sends greetings. He is always wrestling in prayer for you, that you may stand firm in all the will of God, mature and fully assured. 13 I vouch for him that he is working hard for you and for those at Laodicea and Hierapolis. 14 Our dear friend Luke, the doctor, and Demas send greetings. 15 Give my greetings to the brothers and sisters at Laodicea, and to Nympha and the church in her house.
16 After this letter has been read to you, see that it is also read in the church of the Laodiceans and that you in turn read the letter from Laodicea.
17 Tell Archippus: “See to it that you complete the ministry you have received in the Lord.”
18 I, Paul, write this greeting in my own hand. Remember my chains. Grace be with you.

BMS Prayers for the Week
BMS World Mission supporters raised over £100,000 to help survivors of the devastating Beirut blast. Please pray for the nation of Lebanon as it continues to experience political and economic unrest, as well as suffering the effects of Covid-19.
- Pray for the Church in Lebanon, that it may grow in its understanding of the gospel. Pray that the Lord would enable the Church to be the voice of the voiceless, and the hands and feet of Jesus.
- Praise God for the Khebz W Meleh initiatives between young people of different faiths, building friendships to bring sustained peace to communities.
- Neighbourhood racism due to sectarian divisions and large numbers of refugees is a prominent issue in Lebanon. Please pray for Christians to truly have Christ in their hearts when they interact with their neighbours.
