Worship Resources for Sunday

Resources for Worship 

Dear Friends,

Worship is at the heart of our life as God’s people.  Whatever else we do, worship is at the core as it is through meeting God – in the hymns and the music, the movement and the silence, the Word and the words, in friend and stranger as well as in the bread and wine – that we are fed and sustained.  This encounter with God lifts our spirits and gives our lives direction, our prayers focus and our faith a grounding in the everyday realities of life.  

My role was created to help churches find resources to aid their worship.  Our Worship Notes this week were written by the Revd Paul Whittle, retiring Moderator of the National Synod of Scotland, who focuses on how John the Baptist prepared the way for Jesus and how we can, even in the midst of our preparations for Christmas, reflect on our own discipleship and how we can share God’s light in our lives.  

I have written this week’s Weekly Intercessions and these focus on Mary’s great song of praise and some topical news items.

Suggested prayers for the Advent Candles are included above the Worship Notes in the links above.  

Activities for Children and Young people in worship can be found here as well as in the Worship Notes.

As well as the Worship Notes being loaded up for Christmas and January we have PowerPoint services which can be downloaded.  These include, in addition to Sunday Worship, a Carol Service, a midnight Communion service for Christmas Eve and a Christmas Day service.  These can all be downloaded here.

I hope you find them useful – do let us know your thoughts on these resources as you use them.

With every good wish

Andy
