Sunday Service 31st May, 2020

Welcome and Call to Worship: (click here to watch)

Watch and join in the liturgy by saying this prayer altogether:

We are met in the presence of God,
And we do not meet alone.

With the angels in highest heaven,
We gather in time, if not in the same place, to worship the Lord.

With the saints of every age,
We gather to worship the Lord.
With the Church throughout the world,
We gather to worship the Lord.

So, by adults, children and babes at the breast,
God’s holy name is praised.

With drums, sitars, guitars and pipe organs,
God’s holy name is praised.

With people from all nations and every tribe
God’s holy name is praised.

And here with our hearts and our voices,
God’s holy name is praised.

We are met in the presence of God,
And we do not meet alone.
