- CALL TO WORSHIP
Come let us sing to the LORD our God!
Let us rejoice in the God of our salvation.
When two or three are gathered together in his Name,
Christ stands in our midst to bless us.
Come, let us seek God’s Blessing.
Let us worship God.
- INTROIT (Tune : Kelvingrove # 567 Voices United)
Will you come and follow me if I but call your name?
Will you go where you don’t know and never be the same?
Will you let my love be shown?
Will you let my name be known?
Will you let my life be grown in you and you in me?
Will you love the ‘you’ you hide if I but call your name?
Will you quell the fear inside and never be the same?
Will you use the faith you’ve found
to reshape the world around,
Through my sight and touch and sound in you and you in me?
- PRAYER OF APPROACH and the LORD’S PRAYER
In the quiet of the night, You call us,
in the business of life, You visit us,
in the times of shame, You hold us,
You are God and You are always present to us.
In the hour of worry, You appear,
in the moment of birth, You breathe,
in the second of death, You embrace,
You are God and You are always coming to us.
In life, in death, in life beyond death – we are not alone.
Send your Spirit into our worship,
that filled with your breath, we may sing your praises,
with Jesus Christ our Lord, who taught us to pray, saying,
OUR FATHER….. NOTRE PERE…. AR N-ATHAIR…
ONZE VADER …VATER UNSER… PADRE NEUSTRO
- HYMN # 326 (VU) O FOR A THOUSAND TONGUES *
- PRAYER OF CONFESSION
always reaching out to us, always seeking us
and always yearning for us; we turn to You with wonder.
Why do you love? Why do you forgive?
Why do you always want to start again?
We confess that it is difficult for us to love, difficult to forgive and difficult to start again.
You always take the initiative.
Forgive our past, help us in this moment
and present to us a vision of how life can be different.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord, we pray, Amen.
