Worship at Home – Lent Five, Sunday 29th March 2020

We are not able to gather together 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.

Firstly we have recorded a short act of worship for Lent Five. You don’t need to join us live or anything complicated – watch at a time that suits you. Simply watch the video below and follow along with the order of service. The resources such as a list of readings, the order of service, etc. are all on this page below the video.

The order of service can be read below, or if you wish to download the file you’ll find it shared here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=11iOe-ulo5kjdf3VWxB4QbY-tN_5f-qWt


The service includes a hymn, Lord of All Hopefulness, recorded at St Mary’s Beaminster by Martin Schellenberg, Director of Music.

We continue our weekly reflection on the week’s gospel in the latest episode of our Rev Chat video podcast.

The readings for Lent 5 are:

  • Ezekiel 37:1-14
  • Psalm 130
  • Romans 8:6-11
  • John 11:1-45

Collect for Lent 5

Most merciful God,
who by the death and resurrection of your Son Jesus Christ
delivered and saved the world:
grant that by faith in him who suffered on the cross
we may triumph in the power of his victory;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
