Sunday, August 8:  Pentecost XI 

based upon Psalm 130


We wait for you, God, and in your word is our hope.

We wait for you, more than the watchers long for the morning.

We wait in hope, knowing that in you there is love unfailing.

We wait with joy, because you have the power to restore us again.

Come be with us in our worship today and bring us new life.  Amen.

Wanda Winfield, Blenheim U.C., Blenheim, Ont.

Since we are all doing more puzzles, we thought it would be a great idea to have a Puzzle Sharing Program.  If you have any puzzles to share, or would like to pick up a new puzzle, please drop by the Church Library after church.


for your continuing support of Essex United.   We rely on the contributions to cover ministry costs, and our bills.  At this time, we are still facing a prolonged closure, and this makes it more important, if you are able, to give faithfully and regularly to the church.






Our Library is in need of Children’s books.

If you have any to donate, they can be dropped off at the church.

Please call the church office (519-776-5121) to make sure Susan is in.  Also, a wonderful thank you to Jill who has been keeping the Book Bin going throughout the Lock Down.



From Rev. Chris Brouillard-Coyle, Incumbent, St. Paul’s/Trinity Anglican Churches:



Markets are back!

Saturday, Aug. 7 beginning at 10am we are bringing back our market days, outside, socially distanced with local vendors and treats.  As you stretch your legs around town Saturday, stop by and see if there is something that interests you!
