The Parish of Ulverston

Presentation of Christ in the Temple

Brian JonesWelcome to the Parish of Ulverston!

 It has been rumoured that the 'Church is dead' - but that is far from the truth iin our experience as we feel that we have something to offer everyone, with a rich variety in our worship and a wide range of activities throughout the week. For further details see elsewhere on this website.

With August giving way to September we arrive at the end of the summer holidays and get into the autumn programme of events. This week will see our children returning to school and we pray for them as they get back into routine, especially those who will be going to school for the first time or moving on to a new school. We also pray for their teachers in their onerous duty of developing the minds of their young charges.

As you will see elsewhere, this week sees the commencement of the Alpha Course in Haverigg, for which your prayers are requested. Café Church starts again next Sunday and we look forward to yet more good teaching.

We shall also be welcoming Charlie Day , our new intern, and look forward to what he has to offer in the youth ministry of the parish.

On an August Wednesday afternoon there was an afternoon tea laid on by the ladies of the parish and attended by some 80, mainly elderly, people who all had a good time. 'Click' on the image below to learn more.

The Collect:

or special prayer, for the Tenth Sunday after Trinity :

O God, you declare your almighty power
most chiefly in showing mercy and pity:
mercifully grant to us such a measure of your grace,
that we, running the way of your commandments,
may receive your gracious promises,
and be made partakers of your heavenly treasure;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Hello,

Autumn is almost upon us... sadly the summer has come to an end! The leaves have begun to change, and it's not even September yet! In two weeks we will be beginning the Fall DTS- read more about it here.

We hope that your summer has been restful and you have enjoyed the beautiful weather I believe we have been having worldwide!

Thank you for reading, for your prayers and for your encouragement as we continue to serve the Lord with Youth With A Mission.

Blessings,
Sam and Beth
