The Christian Community of St Giles-on-the-Hill
welcomes you to worship with them on
Sunday 10th November 2019
We remember before God today all those who have lost their lives in the service of their country. In the Mass we remember our Lord Jesus Christ, and we enter again into his dying and rising, so that we may share his life and give ourselves in his service.
Today’s Remembrance Sunday Mass will conclude with the reading of the Parish Roll of Honour. After the Blessing (no sung Angelus today) please follow the sanctuary party to the War Memorial, bringing your hymn book with you. Our thanks to Martin Mitchell who will lead us in the reading of the Roll.
10.30am Sung Eucharist The service is set out in the white service booklet. The collect and readings are to be found overleaf. Hymns from the Celebration Hymnal.

The Kingdom Season is kept from All Saints’ until Advent. The principal liturgical colour is red – look at the High Altar and curtain. Do look for the readings and collects which pick up the themes of kingdom values, and hold in mind during this season that lovely phrase in the Lord’s Prayer “Thy Kingdom come… on earth as it is in heaven”. All of us are called to be part of bringing about that kingdom.
