WELCOME AND INTRO by Margaret Smee

 

Take a moment of silence to bring to God our shortcomings and failures of the past week.

Pray together:

Lord God, we have sinned against you; we have done evil in your sight. We are sorry and repent. Have mercy on us according to your love. Wash away our wrongdoing and cleanse us from our sin. Renew a right spirit within us and restore to us the joy of your salvation, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

 

Pray the Lord’s Prayer together:

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. 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 for ever. Amen

 

Music by Ferenc Csullog and children, Reka and Ferenc Jr.

Confess your sin and examine yourself to see if any cares of the world might be choking out your desire to receive the Word and obey it

  we have done evil in your sight.

  We are sorry and repent.

  Have mercy on us according to your love.

  Wash away our wrongdoing and cleanse us from our sin.

Prayers of Intercession | Pam Binyon 

Thank you, Lord, for all who are involved at this time, in government or policing, locally and nationally.  Please help them to work together to make and put into practice fair and right decisions: and please help them to meet the needs of the very diverse society in which we live.

Lord in your mercy

Hear our prayer.

Thank You, Lord, for the many people who are working among us courageously and sacrificially at this time in hospitals, (especially in Hereford and Bromyard), in care homes, (especially Whitegates, Highwell and Pencombe Hall), and in the wider society.  Please help them to use to the full the gifts and the skills that you have given them.  Please over-rule so that they may be supplied with adequate protective equipment, and use it in the best possible ways.

Lord in your mercy

Hear our prayer.

Thank you, Lord, for the many people, including Boris Johnson, who are now recovering from the virus.  May your healing power continue to work in them, so that they may make a full recovery with no after-effects.  We place in your hands too, Lord, all who are still suffering, not only from the virus, but also from on-going previous illnesses.  Please help them not to be frightened.  May they know your presence with them at all times, and may they continue to receive the best possible treatment available to them according to their needs.

Lord in your mercy

Hear our prayer.

We pray, Lord, today for all in the business world facing so many problems at this time, particularly those who are fearful that they may have to close their businesses, and for all who fear threats of unemployment in the future.

Lord in your mercy

Hear our prayer.

We pray too for our farmers, particularly those in Herefordshire.  We ask that all farmers may be able to make good use of the present market demands, even though these come and have to be responded to in unusual ways.  We pray for adequate staffing for the near fruit-picking season.

Lord in your mercy

Hear our prayer.

Merciful Father, accept these prayers for the sake of your Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

Our Father in heaven,

hallowed be your name,

your kingdom come,

your will be done,

on earth as in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

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 for ever.

Amen.

 

Bible Reading  John 20:19-end  

 

 Sermon | Robert Hollis   –  Thomas, the realist.

 

The Blessing

The Lord bless us, and preserve us from all evil, and keep us in eternal life.   Amen.

 

Easter Sunday

Easter 2020 will be an Easter to rememberer. God is doing a new thing. What may have been meant for evil God is using for Good.

 

It may not be possible for us to meet as a church family, but we can still join in worship together

God of glory,

by the raising of your Son you have broken the chains of death and hell:

fill your Church with faith and hope; 

for a new day has dawned and the way to life stands open

in our Saviour Jesus Christ.

All   Amen

 

 

 

Reading  Matthew 28.1-10

 He is Risen – The End of All Fears. 

 

Prayer of Intercessions | Margaret Smee 

Heavenly Father,

On this very special Easter day we thank You, with grateful hearts, for all that You have done for us, are doing for us and will do for us.  We look inside the empty tomb, look up at the empty cross and look inside the temple through to the most Holy Place and we know the certainty of Your truth.  We know that darkness and death has lost power over us because of Jesus’ selfless sacrifice and obedience, and that we can simply come before You.

Lord in Your Mercy

Hear Our Prayer.

We give grateful thanks too to all those selflessly risking their lives to help the sick, suffering and dying as the Coronavirus continues to ravage the world.  Shower them, Lord, with extra supplies of energy, stamina and strength and wrap your protection around them as they work long hours under difficult conditions.  Help us all to listen and respond to their pleas to act responsibly.  Thank you for those who have helped to assemble makeshift hospitals, design respirators and those who are working on testing kits and vaccines. Speed up this work, please Lord. At a time when lots of us are being blessed with time to rest we give thanks for all those working hard to serve us.

Lord in Your Mercy

Hear Our Prayer.

Lord, be close to all those grappling with loss: loss through death, separation from loved ones, loss of livelihood and income, loss of stability and routine, and loss of liberty.  Heavenly Father, we know you understand our loss.  Help us all to cope and this time to pass.  Help us all to help the desperate, and put a stop to greed, exploitation and lawlessness.  We ask you to bless those living in cramped, overcrowded conditions the world over, for whom isolation is near impossible.

Lord in Your Mercy

Hear Our Prayer.

We pray for all those in leadership positions, globally, nationally and locally, from top governmental positions to company managers, making unspeakably hard decisions with crucial consequences during these times.  Guide them and grant them wisdom, integrity and insight.  Here in the UK we pray especially for Boris Johnson.

Lord in Your Mercy

Hear Our Prayer.

And Lord, we thank you for the blessings you are graciously giving us even during these times. This Easter time may we all experience a renewed need for a close relationship with You.

Accept these prayers

For the sake of your Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ.

Amen.

All our problems

All   we send to the cross of Christ.

All our difficulties

All   we send to the cross of Christ.

All the devil’s works

All   we send to the cross of Christ.

All our hopes

All   we set on the risen Christ;

and the blessing of God almighty,

the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit,

be among you and remain with you always.

All   Amen

Palm Sunday – Online Service

Online Liturgy

Open in prayer

Say together:
Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion!
Shout, Daughter Jerusalem!
See, your king comes to you,
righteous and victorious,
lowly and riding on a donkey,
on a colt, the foal of a donkey. (Zechariah 9:9)

Song| Rejoice the Lord is King

 

Confession and Forgiveness

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just, and will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1: 9)

Pray together:

Jesus rode into Jerusalem not as a conquering king but in humility, the Servant King, ready to complete the task for which he had walked this world. Forgive us those times when we think too highly of ourselves and remind us always that you ask from us lives dedicated to service, to you and to our neighbours, wherever and whoever they might be. Enable us to take off our cloaks of self-righteousness and lay them down at your feet.
‘Then I acknowledged my sin to you and did not cover up my iniquity. I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord” – and you forgave the guilt of my sin.’

Pray the Lord’s Prayer together:

Our Father…

Prayers of Intercession | Jill Simmons

On this Palm Sunday, we want to be among those who still welcome you with Hosanna’s and praise to our King.  Only You knew, on that road to Jerusalem, the suffering and rejection You would endure;  because of Your crucifixion, death, and resurrection, You paid the price for our transgressions and bought us freedom and new life and we rejoice in our inheritance.
    In the name of Jesus.        Amen
    God our Father, during this time of confusion and uncertainty in our Nation and Globally.  We pray that we may be assured of the truth of Your Word and claim Your Promises.  We pray that many will be drawn to Your saving grace as people have ‘time’ to BE  –  a break from the busyness in many lives and that people will ‘connect’ with You,  re-evaluate priorities in their families, homes and work.
    May God’s love and Fatherly goodness change lives.   Amen
        Lord Jesus, We pray that You would comfort all who mourn,  that You will bless and protect NHS staff working in stressful situations,   that You would give Your wisdom to our government, medical and scientific personnel to make best decisions  and that the economic situation affecting many, will be sorted.  We pray that each of us will play our part in whatever way we are able, especially among our community.
Lord, we ask that you would look with favour on those in less developed countries, suffering far more than us. May they receive aid and be strengthened by the power of Your love.
   Only You Lord know the end from the beginning.    Amen
                                 May we focus on God’s Word,
                                   be willing to learn from it,
                             be disciplined and obedient to it,
       have a deeper understanding of the Power of the Holy Spirit
                May it shape our lives as we read it every day.
   To the glory of God our Saviour.     Amen

2nd Reading Matthew 21: 1-11
