Sunday 16/05/21 Sunday after Ascension Day

You may not be able to come to the church services we are having at the moment so I hope that these are of use for Sunday mornings.  

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

Psalm     1

Hymn                   Jesus shall reign

Reading     Acts 1 : 15 – 17,  21 – 26

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

Risen ascended Lord, as we rejoice at your triumph, fill your Church on earth with power and compassion, that all who are estranged by sin may find forgiveness and know your peace, to the glory of God the Father.  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
