12th August 2018                                         Eleventh Sunday after Trinity
 
 
Welcome to Buckingham Parish Church - If you are new or just visiting do please make yourself known to one of the clergy or the welcome team – we’d love to get to know you.  There are two zones at the back of church for younger children to play whilst services take place and they are in the care of their parent/carer.   At the 5pm we have groups for children
(subject to the availability of team leaders). The Tower Room is available in all services and has the service streamed in. It is a quieter place to go but children using it will need to be supervised by a parent/carer at all times. Please note that our 10am and 5pm services will be ‘live streamed’. If you don’t wish to be included, please sit at the rear of the church
or in the side aisles. All that is recorded (for viewing later) is the sermon, featuring only the preacher.

through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord
who is alive and reigns with you
