Worship of the Week

Each week we feature an online service from the previous Sunday and a prayer from the Weekly Worship materials prepared for that date. We'd love you to join in worship with us.

This week's worship video features Rev Andrew Barrie and the congregation of Pulteneytown and Thrumster Church.

Prayer for the Week of 14 August 2022

Approach to God/call to worship

God of creation, You brought life to all that we see.
You set the boundaries of the universe and placed us within its care.
Creator God, breathe life into Your creation

Holy Spirit, You bind Your children together in community.
Your bonds transcend borders created by humankind.
You kindle the fire within us that stirs our passion for faith, justice, and reconciliation.
Spirit God, inspire us to reconcile

Jesus the Christ, You came to teach and to lead. You showed us the cost of discipleship when You stood up against the powers of the world, and they tried to suppress Your truth by sentencing You to death. Your life was more powerful than death and Your truth lives on in us.
Jesus the Christ, help us reflect Your light of truth and peace
