Worship at Home – Candlemas

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. Thank you to all our contributors.

You can download the order of service if you would like to follow along with the video service above.

  • Old Testament: Malachi 3. 1-5
  • Psalm: Psalm 24. (1-6), 7-10

Collect for Candlemas

God our creator,
who in the beginning
commanded the light to shine out of darkness:
we pray that the light of the glorious gospel of Christ
may dispel the darkness of ignorance and unbelief,
shine into the hearts of all your people,
and reveal the knowledge of your glory
in the face of 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.

Music

Our hymn today, Faithful Vigil Ended, was recorded by the musicians of St Martin in the Fields.
