Fyling Hall School and St. Stephen’s Church, Fylingdales, have had connections for many years and continue to work together to this day.
The church service at St. Stephen’s this past Sunday focusses on the Lord’s Prayer, which is the best known of all prayers and was taught to the Disciples by Jesus after they asked: “How should we pray?”
A number of students from Fyling Hall have been involved in the reading of this prayer, which will feature in St Stephen’s service. The version read by Fyling Hall students is an “unofficial paraphrase”.
In the Church of England, there are only two versions of the prayer in ‘Common Worship’, the current Worship Book. One version is in traditional language and reads: ‘Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done; on earth as it is in heaven’. The second version is in modern language and reads: ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven’.
The service, which is an exploration of The Lord’s Prayer using words and music, will be live in Church at 10.00am with a simultaneous broadcast to Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/ststephensfylingdales
