Worship at Home – Easter 7

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 7 which you can watch below. The order of service is available for download so you can follow along.

The readings for Easter 7 are:

  • Acts 1:6-12
  • Psalm 68
  • 1 Peter 4:12-14, 5:6-11
  • John 17:1-11

Collect for 7th Sunday of Easter

O God the King of glory,
you have exalted your only Son Jesus Christ
with great triumph to your kingdom in heaven:
we beseech you, leave us not comfortless,
but send your Holy Spirit to strengthen us
and exalt us to the place where our Saviour Christ is gone before,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
Amen.

Music

Our hymn today, Crown him with Many Crowns, was recorded by the musicians of St Martin the Fields.

The voluntary was recorded by the Director of Music at St Mary’s Beaminster, Martin Schellenberg. It was recorded on the organ at Hamdon Community Arts Project, within a few steps of his front door.

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.
