Sunday 9th August - Songs of Lament


Welcome to our service today. We are continuing in our series looking at the Psalms with Psalm 80 - a corporate cry out to God to make things better again. We're called to pray for the world and it couldn't be more appropriate than right now to pray for this world to be healed. God hears us as we cry out and he answers out prayers.


Please join us afterwards on zoom for coffee and cake (make and bring your own!). The link is here


Please note that the Government have now made mask wearing compulsory in places of worship so if you come to the building for any reason please make sure you have one to wear unless you are exempt (we do have some disposables available if needed).

Prayer


In the midst of a pandemic,

may your peace comfort and strengthen us.

In the midst of uncertainty and fear,

may your strength reassure us,

that in the midst of life in all its choas

we may hold firm to you, O Lord,

confident that you hold firm to us.


(adapted from a prayer by Dorothy Stewart)
