CALL TO WORSHIP
The Lord be with you.
And also, with you.
Praise the Lord. Praise the Lord from the heavens.
Praise Him in the heights above.
Praise Him, all His angels. Praise Him, all His heavenly hosts.
Praise Him, sun and moon. Praise Him, all You shining stars.
Praise Him, you highest heavens and you waters above the skies.
Praise the name of the Lord, for His name alone is glorious.
His splendour is above the earth and the heavens. Amen.

THE LORD’S PRAYER
For the wondrous gift of life, we are thankful, O God.
Your generous outpouring of grace reminds us of
the fruitful life we are called to bear.
May these gifts of money, time and labour, embody our desire to share and contribute to Your coming reign among us. Amen.
