Worship at Home – Easter 4

We are not able to gather physically to worship today. However, we remember that although we may be apart, we can still worship together. Here are some resources and suggestions to help you worship at home and join together as the body of Christ.

We have recorded a short act of worship for Easter 4 which you can watch below. The order of service is available for download so you can follow along.

The readings for Easter 4 are:

  • Genesis 7
  • Psalm 23 
  • Acts 2:42-end
  • John 10:10

Collect for 4th Sunday of Easter

Almighty God,
whose Son Jesus Christ is the resurrection and the life:
raise us, who trust in him,
from the death of sin to the life of righteousness,
that we may seek those things which are above,
where he reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. 
Amen.

Join In

We would love to hear from you with pictures, stories, updates, questions about your current experiences of lockdown, and how you are continuing to worship.

Send them to revneary@gmail.com if you are happy for them to be mentioned in worship in the next few weeks. Perhaps a snap of your place of worship – garden, sitting room, bed? Or you in your worship attire: PJs, gardening clothes, best dress, and hat? And what about pets who worship? Anyone joined by their dog, cat, pony, llama?

We’d love to be able to share our church community experience with each other.
