Hello everyone – we hope you are all safe and well.

Three things to let you know about

  • Morning worship – links etc below from 10.45am
  • Prayer at 7pm – the prayer is included below
  • Organist entertains – at 8pm with more hymns and insight into the organ (again the link is below)

MORNING WORSHIP

Our Sunday morning broadcast starts at 1045am, with the usual news screens, please watch them as they do change each week!  Mistakes “might” be fixed and things updated.

A reminder that today is Young Church Service, with the prizes and where we give thanks for young people and also remember Father’s Day.

The links to our service is here

The YouTube link has a live chat so would be good to hear from you the chat

Attached is the e-news – it will be emailed out by the website to those who follow it, apologies if you get it twice!  But better twice than not at all! Please have a read through it.   We’ve included the opening prayer and ask you to join in with it. 

One the live stream is over, it gets uploaded to YouTube and the YouTube link above will work for catch up, if you miss it live

Please share with folks that the service can now be listened to over the telephone by calling 01698 533211.

It is a local rate number, and might even be free on call plans.   It is available all the time.   Each Sunday morning it is updated with the most recent service.   Ideal for those who are not online.  

PRAYER

At 7pm we ask you to join in prayer with Christians across the UK once more. Light a candle in your window letting Gods Love and Light shine forth into the darkness.

The prayer we will pray together is:

Faithful God, we thank you
That you are present with us now
As we share in the life of the Risen Christ.
Continue to be present with us we ask.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

God who inspires faith, we thank you
That you have been with us
In times of anxiety and uncertainty.
Keep watch over our memories of the past.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

Faithful God, we thank you
That you will be with us
In the days that are to come.
Journey with us in the days that lie before us.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

God who inspires faith, we thank you
For the life of your Son
Who for our sakes embraced human form.
May his life shape our lives in these present times.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

Faithful God, we thank you
For the reassurance that you are merciful and gracious
And that your love abounds.
In your compassion, remember us and those whom we love.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

God who inspires faith, we thank you
For the knowledge that you will be with us
In all that we now face.
Go before us and provide for us we ask.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

To join us for live-stream click on the following link  http://www.bellshillcentral.church/watch-live

We think that is it comforting to have familiar views and sounds while we worship in a different way during the COVID-19 crisis. So, in our online worship we will use the sounds of our organ, choir and congregation singing. We will have members of our congregation reading the lessons, praying and helping Kevin lead our worship.
