Sunday Service - Sunday 31st May

Scattered

On Sunday we are looking forward to worshipping together even though we can't physically be together in the same building, at 10.30am we will broadcast our service online.

Please find below the service information, including song lyrics so you can follow and join in wherever you are, alternatively click here for the service sheet.

If you have one, it would be good to have a Bible close to hand, for the reading which is 1 Peter 2:11-3:7, or you can access the Bible reading online here
  


10.30am Sunday 31st May


Welcome and Introduction
 
Opening Prayer

Leader: The Lord is here
All: His Spirit is with us
 
Song: Holy Spirit
1. Holy Spirit living Breath of God
Breathe new life into my willing soul
Let the presence of the risen Lord
Come renew my heart and make me whole
Cause Your word to come alive in me
Give me faith for what I cannot see
Give me passion for Your purity
Holy Spirit breathe new life in me
 
2. Holy Spirit come abide within
May Your joy be seen in all I do
Love enough to cover ev'ry sin
In each thought and deed and attitude
Kindness to the greatest and the least
Gentleness that sows the path of peace
Turn my strivings into works of grace
Breath of God show Christ in all I do
 
3. Holy Spirit from creation's birth
Giving life to all that God has made
Show Your power once again on earth
Cause Your church to hunger for Your ways
Let the fragrance of our pray'rs arise
Lead us on the road of sacrifice
That in unity the face of Christ
May be clear for all the world to see

Confession
ALL: Most merciful God, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, we confess that we have sinned in thought, word and deed. We have not loved you with our whole heart. We have not loved our neighbours as ourselves. In your mercy forgive what we have been, help us to amend what we are, and direct what we shall be; that we may do justly, love mercy, and humbly walk with you, our God. Amen

Creed
We believe in God the Father, who created the world and all that is in it;
All:Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again.
We believe in Jesus Christ his Son, who came to our world as its Saviour;
All:Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, who gives life to the people of God;
All:Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again.
This is the faith of all Christians, in all times and in all places;
All:Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again.

Sermon
 
Song: Breathe on me breath of God
1. Breathe on me breath of God
Fill me with life anew
That I may love what Thou dost love
And do what Thou wouldst do
 
2. Breathe on me breath of God
Until my heart is pure
Until with Thee I will one will
To do and to endure
 
3. Breathe on me breath of God
Till I am wholly Thine
Till all this earthly part of me
Glows with Thy fire divine
 
4. Breathe on me breath of God
So shall I never die
But live with Thee the perfect life
Of Thine eternity
