Introductory music


Welcome to our time of worship, which is led by Rev Anita Kerr.
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.

Psalm 104

Selected verses from Psalm 104 are read in this video – you may wish to turn up the sound, or add the subtitles, as the birds are singing loudly.


Our opening hymn is “O God of burning, cleansing flame”, from BBC Songs of Praise, recorded at William Booth College, London.

Bible Readings

Please listen to our Bible readings, which include subtitles.

Acts chapter 2 verses 1-12

Romans chapter 8 verses 22-27

Let us respond to the time of reflection, by singing together, “As the deer pants”, the words will appear on the screen as the video plays.


The new Moderator of the General Assembly, Rt Rev Dr Martin Fair, 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,


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


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.

Final music

Grieg’s Sarabande from Holberg Suite
