Welcome to Saint Paul’s. The main order of service is on the cream card. The special prayers for this Sunday, Bible reading references, and hymn numbers are on this sheet. Words for the hymns are in the green book, or on this sheet.  Items are available to occupy children who are not attending Sunday Club.  Just ask the Sidesmen (who gave you this leaflet) about this, or if you have any other questions.
