Friday 25/12/20 Christmas Day

You may not be able to come to the church services we are having at the moment so I hope that this is of use for you.  

We’ll be using the psalm, readings and prayers in our services so we will all be connecting.

Psalm 98

Hymn    O come all ye faithful

Reading     Isaiah 52: 7 – 10

Prayers including the collect and a prayer for nation during this Coronavirus pandemic:

Lord Jesus Christ, your birth at Bethlehem draws us to kneel in wonder at heaven touching earth: accept our heartfelt praise as we worship you, our Saviour and our eternal God. Amen

Loving God, as your Son healed the sick and brought good news to the needy be with us this day. Loving Jesus as you taught us to ‘do unto others as you would have them do to you’ be with all the medical staff this day. Loving spirit, your gift is healing, bring your healing fire to our homes, our hospitals and our county, but most of all, be with us this day. Amen
