Call to worship

The invitation is given to every person by Jesus Christ:
"Come to me! Follow me! Be my disciples!"

We come to this place, to this time,
at the invitation of Jesus Christ.

In the name of Christ,
we accept the invitation to discipleship.

In the name of Christ,
as his disciples, we worship and praise God.

In the midst of a world where cruelty abounds,
we proclaim the God of Compassion.

In the midst of despair that threatens to swallow up
whole lives, whole peoples,

we proclaim the God of Hope.

In the midst of indifference and apathy,
we proclaim the God of Love.

Come, let us worship together
and share our witness of God's living presence in the world.

Song - Come people of the risen king


Story - Fishermen!


Song - Will you come and follow me if I but call your name?


Prayer

Eternal God, the refuge and help of all your children,
we praise you for all you have given us,
for all you have done for us,
for all that you are to us.
In our weakness, you are strength,
in our darkness, you are light,
in our sorrow, you are comfort and peace.
We cannot number your blessings,
we cannot declare your love:
For all your blessings we bless you.
May we live as in your presence,
and love the things that you love,
and serve you in our daily lives;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

St. Boniface (ca. 672-754) 


The Lord's Prayer


Song: Dear Lord and father of mankind


Reading - Mark 1: 14-20


Song: One more step along the world I go


Thought for the Week


Song - Amazing grace


Communion

Sharing communion as a church is not possible at present. Use this liturgy to celebrate communion at home either alone or with members of your household.

(We have been unable to get the Matter Transfer Beam working on YouTube so you'll need to provide your own bread and wine!)


Song - I, the Lord of sea and sky


Blessing

Go now, follow where Christ calls you
and proclaim the message God gives you.
Wait in hope for God.
Avoid become bound up in the business of the world,
but live in readiness for the inbreaking of the Kingdom.

And may God be your haven and your glory;
May Christ Jesus give you courage for his mission;
And may the Spirit embrace your soul in God’s silence.

We go in peace to love and serve the Lord,
In the name of Christ. Amen.
