WORSHIP AT SAINT LAIKA’S

I attended a Church of England primary school. It didn't differ from the state schools in my town other than the fact that the local vicar would turn up once a week to tell us about God for ten minutes during assembly. But we did enjoy one perk the other schools didn't. On Ascension Day every year we would get half a day off our classes so that we could go to the Ascension Day service at the parish church. This was compulsory but better than lessons. Let's face, to a seven year old child anything, bar a dental appointment, was better than lessons.

So, I've always regarded today's feast as special and nowadays I try to celebrate it in style. Therefore, I have cobbled together and extravaganza of words and music for you today. There's loads of music of all different types, so there should be something for everyone. The liturgy is considerable different to normal and I've replaced the sermon with a poem. Basically, there's no reason why you should not download it immediately ready to enjoy at your leisure later on.

A SERVICE OF HOLY COMMUNION
ASCENSION DAY

All are welcome to join me in taking communion.

The order of service is posted beneath the audio file so that you can join in with the service. The words in bold type are the ones we say together.

If you want to physically partake of communion you will require a small piece of bread and a small amount of drink (preferably made from grapes and containing alcohol). How you view the nature of this part of the service is completely up to you.

  1. Yep, I’ve heard that tune before! that Hail the day that sees him rise tune was sung by the Are u being served again crew of: Mrs Slocum, Captain Peacock, Mr Humphries and Miss Bhrames when they were barefooted and dancing in a horse trough. I think they were stomping grapes for wine!
