Sunday 03/01/21 2nd Sunday of Christmas

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

Psalm 147

Hymn    As with gladness men of old

Reading     Ephesians 1: 3 – 14

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

God our Father, in love you sent your Son that the world may have life: lead us to seek him among the outcast and find him in those in need, for Jesus Christ’s sake.  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
