Sunday Service 2020-08-09

9th August 2020:

Welcome to our Online Sunday Service at Llanelwy Community Church, led today by Peter Cousins.  Feel free to use this service whenever you want. However, the idea is that, if you can, to start at 10:30 on Sunday.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO JOIN IN THE COMMUNION PART OF THE SERVICE PLEASE HAVE SOME BREAD AND WINE BESIDE YOU.

(The written prayers are from the Iona Community © 1999)

During the service, (after an item) please add a comment on our facebook page to encourage a feeling of togetherness. Or send us a comment or greetings if you’ve done this at another time.

Then, at 11:45 on Sunday, we’ll have a zoom meeting at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87287366294. If you click on this link now, you can download the zoom client (which is free) so you are ready to go, or just use the webpage to join. Or you can dial in using the phone numbers below. If none of that works for you, please simply ring other people in the congregation or do a messenger-group-chats together (or however you do online chats!) encourage one-another and generally catch up with one another.

Please click on each item and read, or listen to the item, then when you are finished, come back to this page and click on the next item.

BIBLE READING: Today’s reading is Philippians 3:10-14  Follow it here:

I want to know Christ – yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead. Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: forgetting what is behind and straining towards what is ahead, I press on towards the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenwards in Christ Jesus.

Gratitude, praise, hearts lifted high,
voices full and joyful: these you deserve.
For when we were nothing, you made us something.
When we had no name and no faith and no future,
You called us your children.

When we lost our way or turned away,
you did not abandon us.
When we came back to you, your arms opened wide in welcome.
And look, you prepare not just bread, not just wine, but your very self
so that we may be filled, forgiven,
healed, blessed and made new again.

You are worth all our pain and all our praise.
So now, in gratitude,
we join our voices to those of the Church on earth and in heaven:
Lamb of God,
You take away the sin of the world,
Have mercy upon us and grant us your peace.

The bread is broken and the wine is taken:

Lord Jesus Christ,
You have put your life into our hands;
Now we put our lives into yours.
Take us, renew us and remake us.
What we have been is past;
what we shall be, through you, still awaits us.

Lead us on,
Take us with you , Amen
