Sunday 6/12/20 Advent 2

You may not be able to come to the church services we are having at the moment so I hope that this service is of use for Sunday morning or at any time during the week.  

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

Psalm 85

Hymn    Love divine, all loves excelling

Reading     2 Peter 3: 8-15a

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

Almighty God, purify our hearts and minds, that when your Son. Jesus Christ comes again as our judge and saviour we may be ready to receive him who is our Lord and our 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
