Sunday Service 13th September
Here is our twentyfifth virtual service in the continuing UK Coronavirus Lockdown. Make sure to scroll down all the way to the bottom of the page so you don't miss anything. If you didn't see last weeks service and would like to catch up, you can see it here. Links to all the services are also on the Listen Again page.
Don't forget, you can also take a look at last week's service again to see what comments have been left and to respond to them where appropriate.
If you would like to contribute an item for next week's service or for another week contact Alison or Roger or leave a message in the comments below. It looks like we will be having to continue with our virtual services for a while, and it will be good to get as many involved as possible.
with a reading of Psalm 62
There is a new song in my heart
When I Was Lost by Kate Simmonds, performed by The Stoneleigh Band.
Just as I am
by Brian Doerksen
Matthew 11:28-30; New International Version
28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
This mornings sermon from the Virtual Vicar
What a friend we have in Jesus
performed by Steph Macleod
this week a prayer from the Evangelical Alliance
Ephesians 1: 15-17
“For this reason, ever since I have heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God’s people. I have not stopped giving thanks for you remembering you in my prayers. I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know Him better”
Gracious Lord, we thank you for people who love us. Who have cared for us and been there for us (we take a few seconds of silence to picture them.) Thank you for their advice, their kindness and their prayers.
We thank you for your love for us that you have no favourites but you constantly love us fully and unreservedly. Help us to love others in your name.
Lord in this time of change and uncertainty, grant us wisdom and revelation. That we may make good decisions for ourselves and for others.
In Jesus' name
