Sunday 27/12/20 Christmas 1

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 morning.  

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

Psalm 148

Hymn    Joy to the world

Reading     Isaiah 61:10 – 62:3

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

God in Trinity, eternal unity of perfect love: gather the nations to be one family, and draw us into your holy life through the birth of Emmanuel, our Lord Jesus Christ.  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
