Song: Come people of the risen King

Reading: Luke 15.1-10 - Joyce

Song: Before the throne of God above

Talk: Jean

Song: When the music fades


In our time of intercession, let us spend time individually with the Lord. Let us bring to him our thankfulness, our concerns, our hopes, our fears. We will have issues that affect us locally, nationally and internationally which may include:

  • The current situation on the Covid-19 virus, medically and socially
  • The growing employment crisis which will impact on millions of people
  • The increasing tension over China and Hong Kong and its global implications
  • The deepening racial concerns at home and abroad
  • The restoration of a normal existence in our town
  • The uncertainty on the educational progress of our children and grandchildren

Final song: Christ our glory

Blessing - Alastair

This week's bonus song: I am persuaded
