Festal Evensong

4:00 pm High Altar


At the morning services on this Fifth Sunday of Easter, we have John's Gospel in which Christ describes himself as the true vine: "I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing."

Consider reading these past sermons for some help in understanding this lesson:

Christ the Vine (2008) by Fr Mead
The True Grapevine (2005) by Fr Mead
A Sermon for Confirmation (2002) by Bishop Sisk


O Almighty God, whom truly to know is everlasting life: Grant us so perfectly to know thy Son Jesus Christ to be the way, the truth, and the life, that we may steadfastly follow his steps in the way that leadeth to eternal life; through the same thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
