CALL TO WORSHIP (uses words from Worship Alive by Nancy Chegus)
We come with different needs, different likes, different goals
Sometimes we get what we need, sometimes our neighbour does.
But together we worship, together we lift each other up
Together we make Worship alive for the Spirit is here
We have come to be renewed, so that our worship feeds our work
Hallelujah, sing praises to the Living God
For the Spirit is me and the Spirit is you,
here among us God's Purpose will live through our lives
God whose presence fills us with awe, God who calls us to dance and praise,
we come once again to worship.
May this time together be a time that refreshes our spirits.
May it be a time when we are re-awakened to Your possibilities.
May our worship lead us to action as we walk with you on the road of life. Amen.
COMMISSIONING (uses words from Worship Alive by Nancy Chegus)
We have gathered, we have prayed, we have sung, we have listened.
We have made space in our lives for God, we have opened ourselves to God's Word.
Our time of worship refreshes us so that our work is fed.
We came here affirming a purpose for life. By working together God's love will flow from me on to you and then on it goes.
The Spirit is me and the Spirit is you
Hallelujah sing praises to the Living God
Go with God, who is with us in our worship and our work, who makes all things one.
