Worship Sunday 10/5/2020

Introductory music

Welcome

Welcome to our time of worship. Thank you for joining us. Most of our videos have subtitles, which you can switch on / off. On a computer you may have a option “CC” to choose subtitles in English. On phone or tablet, you may need to choose subtitles from a settings menu.

This week is Christian Aid week. Please watch this short message from our Christian Aid co-ordinator, Bill Mclean, and read the text from Rev Anita Kerr below it. You will find a link to make Christian Aid donations in the church notices, at the end of the time of worship.

In February I was present at the Christian Aid Gathering in the Steeple Church, where we were brought up to date with Christian Aid Scotland’s work through its vision of life before death. The main conversation that morning was via Zoom, with a Pastor in Kenya who shared with us their experiences as huge locust swarms laid waste the farms and crops in Kenya, Ethiopia and Somalia eating everything in sight. This week the news is that a second much bigger wave of locusts is causing destruction on a vast scale across East Africa. A salutary reminder that all the problems we had before this pandemic have not gone away but seem somehow more remote. Please support Christian Aid to fulfil their vision of Life before death for vulnerable people facing the severe implications of this devastation and the Coronavirus pandemic.

Rev Anita Kerr

Let us pray,

Merciful God,
You have prepared for those who love you such good things as pass all understanding.
Pour into our hearts such love towards you, that we loving you above all things, may obtain your promises, which exceed all that we can desire;

through Jesus Christ our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
Amen

Hymn

Our opening hymn is “There is a Redeemer”, the words will appear on the screen as the video plays.

Psalm 67

God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face to shine upon us.

That your way may be known upon the earth, your saving power among all nations.

Let the peoples praise you, O God; let all the peoples praise you.

O let nations rejoice and be glad, for you will judge the peoples righteously and govern the nations upon the earth. 

Let the peoples praise you, O God; let all the peoples praise you.

Then shall the earth bring forth her increase, and God, our own God, will bless us.

God will bless us, and all the ends of the earth shall fear him. Amen

Bible Readings

Please listen to our Bible readings, which include subtitles.

Joel chapter 2 verses 13 & 14

Acts chapter 2 verses 14-21

Prayer

Siobhan Kerr leads us in prayer, with subtitles.

Let us say together …

Our Father, who art in heaven
hallowed be thy name,
thy kingdom come, thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread
and forgive us our debts
as we forgive our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory,
forever.
Amen.

Hymn

Our final hymn is “Father, hear the prayer we offer”, from BBC Songs of Praise, recorded at The Church of St Cross, Winchester.

Grace

We normally say the words of the Grace to each other. We say them now to whoever is with us, and to everyone we have thought about during this time of worship.

May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all, now and evermore. Amen.

Christian Aid Week

Each year, Christian Aid Week brings together tens of thousands of committed volunteers across Britain and Ireland to raise millions of pounds in support of people living in poverty, injustice and inequality across the world.

Now, more so than ever, Christian Aid Week provides an important opportunity to celebrate and share the life-saving work that brings hope to people the world over.

In 2019 Christian Aid Week raised over £7.5m through a combination of church collections, house-to-house, delivery-only fundraising and events such as Big Brekkies.

This year, many Christian Aid supporters will have already dedicated a significant amount of their time and energy planning these initiatives.

Not surprisingly, the coronavirus situation has meant that much of this usual fundraising cannot go ahead for Christian Aid Week 2020 (10-16 May).

If you can afford it, please make your Christian Aid donation online this year – https://www.christianaid.org.uk/give-money/make-donation

Discipleship Explored

We had to stop ‘Discipleship Explored’ after only one session when the lockdown started. We are now planning to restart the course by using online videos and a Zoom Meeting.

Participants will watch a 15 minute video and then join a Zoom meeting for 45minutes to discuss questions and points raised.

Discipleship Explored helps followers of Jesus turn up the gospel
soundtrack to their lives.

It goes beyond simply teaching the right moves – go to church, pray, read the Bible, share the gospel and focuses on the music which drives discipleship: the love of Christ. The greatest love anyone can ever know. It’s an eight-session journey through Paul’s letter to the Philippians and is ideal for believers at any stage of the Christian life.

Interested? Then please contact administrator@logies.org to register your interest.

Find out more about Discipleship Explored.

This first session will be at 7.30pm on Tuesday 12th May 2020. Help is available to set up Zoom and there’ll be a practice session a few days before the first meeting.

Welcome

Welcome to our time of worship. Thank you for joining us.

We have put together a short time of worship, as you scroll down this page, please watch the videos, and read the text and prayers.

We will start in prayer,

Lord God
You are our Saviour and king
our Master and friend
our Shepherd and guide.
Wherever we go, You are with us.
Wherever we stray, You seek us out.
Whenever we call, You hear us.
You are our promise and our hope
our place of rest and peace
our security and our sureness.
Whoever we are, You accept us.
Whatever we do, You love us.
Whenever we fall, You lift us up.
Lord God
we are in different places,
leading different lives,
in different situations,
with different concerns
and different dreams.
Yet we come as one,
a people of shared faith
in a God who shared all.
Be with us as we worship you together.
In Jesus name,
Amen

Hymn

Our opening hymn is “Praise my Soul, the King of Heaven”, we join massed voices in Liverpool’s Anglican Catherdral, via BBC Songs of Praise.

Prayer

Lord, You are our shepherd.
We thank You that You give us
everything we need.
That You offer us rest and refreshment
through Your Word.
That You keep us on the straight and narrow
when we are prone to stray.
We thank You that those times when we are afraid
we can trust that You watch out for us.

At this time, be with everyone working to protect us,
and keep us safe.
Medical staff, nursing staff, carers and all staff working in the health and care professions.
Those working or volunteering in shops and delivery services.
People who are keeping the infrastructure of our country going.
Teachers, school staff and other key workers.
Thank you for their strength and dedication, and keep them safe.

Lord God, shepherd all Your people
on their different journeys
with their different joys and struggles.
Remind them that all are honoured guests
at Your table
and that all may find a home in You.
Lavish them with Your goodness and love
so that they might know
that in You they have everything they need.
In Jesus’ name we pray.
Amen.

The outgoing Moderator of the General Assembly, Rt Rev Colin Sinclair, leads us in the Lord’s Prayer:

Our Father, who art in heaven
hallowed be thy name,
thy kingdom come, thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread
and forgive us our debts
as we forgive our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory,
forever.
Amen.
