Lent 2 Liturgy

Psalm 27

A Prayer of Thanksgiving

God, our friend and our parent,
we give you thanks
that in your might and power
you gave birth to our universe
and this wonderful world,
with all its richness and beauty.

We give you thanks
that you made us in your image,
and that within us you placed
a yearning to seek out that which is beyond us
yet makes us whole beings –
your wonderful, transforming presence
in our lives.

We give you thanks
that through the passage of time,
through prophet, priest, ordinary people
and the whole of creation,
you have reached out to us and all humanity,
that we might know you more.

We give you thanks
for the ultimate revelation of you,
O gracious God,
in the coming of your Son Jesus to this our world,
and for his death on the cross –
that ultimate picture of how much you love us.
For all this we give you thanks. Amen.

Lent 1 Liturgy

Psalm 91


I, who live in the shelter of the Most High,
who abide in the shadow of the Almighty,
will say to the Lord,
‘My refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.’

For you will deliver me
from the snare of the fowler,
and from the deadly pestilence;
you will cover me with your pinions,
and under your wings I will find refuge;
your faithfulness is a shield and buckler.

Lent 2018

The Lenten liturgy to be used in worship this year comprises the reading of and a reflection on a selected Psalm for each week. A copy of each Psalm will be placed on the Cross in the worship area.

A display in the porch has also been created to assist our own meditation and to be visible, like the Nativity figures during Advent and Christmas, to people outside.
