Opening prayer

Dear Jesus, as we meet together today please let us experience joy through your Holy Spirit. Fill our hearts with your gift of joy – a joy that material things cannot give to us. Help us experience this deep joy, especially in this time of great uncertainty and despite what we hear in the news, read in the papers, and perhaps are experiencing ourselves. Dear Jesus, please bring us your peace, love and joy in our time of worship time today. We ask this in the name of your son Jesus Christ, Amen.

Reading: Hebrews 12:1

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us…”


“And now may the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be us now and forevermore. Amen.”
