This Sunday, our pre-recorded online Worship Service with Holy Communion follows the theme ‘Jesus came and lived among us’ and will be available to view on our YouTube channel from 9am on Sunday. The service booklet, which can be used in conjunction with this service, is available to view/download here. There will be no Sunday Xtra service this week. Next week, we will launch our Lent programme, so don’t forget to check back then for more information!
God of the universe, open our eyes
so we can see the splendour of creation
and the beauty of human beings, fragile and strong.
Open our spiritual eyes so we can know the wisdom of the universe,
and your love, made tangible and real in Jesus.
Fill us with your spirit of wisdom, strength and truth
so we can live our lives with a deep and gentle trust in you.
As we go about our daily work and daily challenges
may we know that we are not alone but held by your love
accompanied by Jesus and supported by your church.
