Order of service & notices – 11 July 2021   ready-to-print

Church Notices

  • 10:20 Peter Eve will play the organ at Salisbury URC as worshippers enter.  If you are on Zoom and would like to listen, stay muted and move into the Breakout Room. If you need assistance, please ask. The breakout room will close a couple minutes before the start of the service.
  • Remember to vote for the twelve pictures you would like to see featured on the 2022 Church calendar. They can be found on the Salisbury URC website.
  • Fellowship is available after today’s service in Zoom breakout rooms. Everyone is welcome to stay.
  • Starting Tuesday, 13 July, Ana and Tod will be away for 6 weeks, including 2 weeks of holiday time. If you have a pastoral concern while they are away, please contact an Elder. If you have a request or suggestion for the Benevolence Fund while they are away, please direct that to Diane Coles.
  • Because we are online, many of the hymns in our songbooks are not included in our license. God has turned this into a blessing and we have discovered many new hymns which are generously shared in the public domain. We especially give thanks for George Stuart who has shared all of his hymns freely for anyone to use.
  • Tomorrow our Elders gather for a second ‘Visioning’ session led by our Ministers, Ana & Tod.

InPerson departure instructions:

Those gathered InPerson will leave one row at a time starting from the front. Please wait for the people sitting in front of you to leave first.  Please do not come forward to greet those leading the service.  Use the side exit and stairs and leave through the side door downstairs. If anyone requires the lift, please turn right through the flower room at the top of the stairs and one of the stewards will assist you. Please do not go into any other areas of the building or gather to chat either inside the building.
