WE GATHER TOGETHER

MUSIC IN PREPARATION

TRINITY IN ACTION

 

WE CENTRE OURSELVES IN GOD’S LIGHT

 

WE GATHER TO WORSHIP

CALL TO WORSHIP: 

Loving God, unchanging, ever with us, we praise you!

You are the guiding light when the way ahead seems dark.

You are the renewing Spirit when despair clouds our path.

You are the will to change when old ways hold us bound.

You are the touch of compassion when life is harsh.

Loving God, hope of the world, giver of Jesus, we praise you!

 

HYMN :  O God of Bethel                 650

 

COMMUNION

The Spirit of God be with you.

And also with you.

Turn to God, the source of life.

We lift our hearts in prayer.

Let us give thanks.

We offer joyful thanks to God.

 

Blessed are you … So it is that we join the song of all creation to  proclaim your goodness:

 

Holy, holy, holy Lord,

God of power and might, heaven and earth are full of your glory.

Hosanna in the highest.

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.

 

Hosanna in the highest.

 

Mighty and tender…  Grant that, in praise and thanksgiving, we may remember the mystery of faith:

 

We remember Jesus’ integrity unto death.

We remember the Easter hope of resurrection.

We remember the promise of compassion and justice.

 

Send, O God…

 

JESUS’ PRAYER

 

Elements are Served

 

Prayer After Communion:  Life-giving God,  may we, who share Christ’s body, live his risen life; 

we, who drink his cup, bring new life to others;

we, whom the Spirit lights, give light to the world.

Keep us firm in the hope you have set before us,  so that we and all your children shall be free, and all creation will live to praise your name.  Amen.

            show forth the glory of your God,

            which shines on you today.

                        Arise, your light is come!
