"Our own personal resurrection story"

Updated: Sep 3, 2023

We are still family even while we are apart, so while we are unable to gather because of the ongoing health crisis, I will be sharing material on the blog each Sunday morning, and posting notes to those unable to access the internet. Of course you are free to use this material at any time, but my hope is that as many of us as possible will be reading these words during our usual service time - Sunday at 10:30 if you're new or need a reminder! - gathering in time if not in space.


Over the next few weeks, we will be thinking about what resurrection life may look like for us in the light of the current health crisis. Where do we go from here? Is there still space for fear as well as hope? What might look like the old life and what will be made new?


This service includes communion, so you may like to prepare by setting aside something eat and drink. Variants on bread and wine are perfectly acceptable!




Opening music

Love Divine, recorded on our very own organ by Mike Sole.


Call to worship

Begin by holding in your mind all those you would normally be worshipping with, then hear these words from Psalm 33 as a call to come to worship with a voice of praise.


Song | Faithful One


Prayer

Here you may like to return to one of the patterns of prayer suggested previously, but I also offer a focus for prayer below. However you pray, I invite you to end with the Lord's Prayer.

Our Father in heaven,

hallowed be your name.

Your kingdom come, your will be done,

on earth as in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread,

and forgive us our sins,

as we forgive those who sin against us.

Lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil.

For yours is the kingdom, the power and the glory

forever and ever.

Amen.


Reading: Luke 24:13-35, read by Clare Robertson-Hughes


Reflection, by our minister Leigh Greenwood

Song | Broken For Me, Broken For You


Communion

The video above includes liturgy spoken by our minister Leigh Greenwood and a prayer read by Steve Martin.


Resurrection Day


Blessing

Close your time of worship by again holding in your mind those you love and would be worshipping alongside, and use the words of the grace: May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit remain with us all evermore. Amen.
