Opening Hymn: 'Christ be our Light'
Let’s say The Lord’s Prayer together:
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be Your name
Your kingdom come,
Your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those
who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power,
and the glory are Yours
now and for ever.

Closing words of encouragement and Prayer:
‘May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit’ (Romans 15v13)
Let us also await Christ’s Second Coming – described in Acts 2v20 as ‘the great and glorious day of the Lord’
A short prayer by Jenny Childs(from ‘Lord, Hear our Prayer’):
Lord, You are the Desire of nations and the Dayspring Bright, and yet You came into the world as a tiny Baby born of a virgin. When You come again with great glory, may we be found awake and alert, ready to welcome You as King of kings and Lord of lords.
