Worship


Act of Remembrance


As it is Remembrance Sunday you may want to join the nation in observing the 2 minute silence on your doorstep at 11am. This video plays the last post and includes words you might find helpful and familiar as you remember.



Opening Prayer


Heavenly Father, we thank you that today as we remember the sacrifice of others, we are also remembering the extent of your love for us. We remember that you sent Jesus into this world to show us how to live, to be a teacher who teaches us to follow your way and through his death be the means by which our relationship can be restored. Today we also remember that you have given us Your Spirit to be with us, to help us as we seek to follow Jesus and live in your Way. We thank you that even though we are scattered throughout the community, we can still worship together as we are one in you. We pray that your Spirit will speak to us, bless us and inspire us as we worship. Amen.


Songs


Here are some songs for today. You might want to save the last two for before and after the sermon




Poppies


Why do we wear poppies? What do they represent? Have a listen to what these children think.....



Have a go at making your own poppy and use them for your prayers. Write prayers for peace in those places where there is war, prayers for those who are mourning and prayers for the future on the paper before you fold it.


If you want to make the poppies in this video then you will need a square bit of paper - red if you have it, but you could always colour it in - and a black dot for in the middle.




You could deliver your poppies to church to be added to our poppy display.


Prayers


Prayer and reflection for Remembrance Sunday using images of our poppy windows. Take a moment to give thanks and remember and pray for the world.





Word


Our sermon today is based on Joshua 4:1-9. You would find it helpful to read it before you listen - you can read it here
