Call to Worship: Psalm 29 with Genesis 1

 

Gathering Prayer

 

From the waters of Creation,

the earth sprang forth.

From the waters of a womb,

God’s Son was given to us.

From the waters of a river,

we are marked as God’s own children.

 

Gospel Reading: Mark 1:4-11

 

Prayers of Regret

 

Words of Assurance

 

God, be present in our lives.

Fill us with your light.

Be generous with your love.

Count us among your children.

Be compassionate toward our mistakes.

Let the Lord give strength to the people!

Let the Lord bless them with peace!

 

Reflection: Rev Jane Clarke

 

Song

 

Before the world began you were on His mind

And every tear you cry is precious in His eyes

Because of His great love He gave His only Son

Everything was done so you would come

 

Come to the Table though your gift is small

Broken hearts, broken lives he will take them all

The power of the Word, the power of His blood

Everything was done so you would come

 

Nothing you can do could make Him love you more

And nothing that you've done could make Him close the door

Because of His great love He gave His only Son

Everything was done so you would come

Prayers for our world

 

Lord’s Prayer

 

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,

Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is 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 the Kingdom, the power and the glory are yours.

Now and forever.  Amen.

 

Communion

 

A Eucharist of Creation

Closing Prayer

 

Go into the world as God's beloved children.

We will go to share the gift of grace which flow from God's heart.

 

Go into the world as baptised siblings of Jesus.

We will go to bring the light of hope to all who are in despair.

 

Go into the world as those filled with the Holy Spirit.

We will go to hear the whispered yearnings for peace and reconciliation.

 

The Grace

 

May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ

And the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit

Be always with us.  Amen
