Service order for online worship using zoom
We are gathered together as the family of God to offer praise and thanksgiving to ask forgiveness of our sins to hear and receive God’s holy Word to pray for the needs of the world and to seek God’s grace that through Jesus Christ our Lord and in the power of the Holy Spirit we may give ourselves to God’s service.
Blessed be God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit:
And blessed be God’s people, now and for ever. Amen.

A time of silence, which may be followed by music.
Do you believe in God the Creator, who made the world?
Do you believe in God the Saviour, who redeemed humanity?
Do you believe in God the Sanctifier, who gives life to God’s people?

on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Do not bring us to the time of trial
but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours, now and for ever. Amen.
A verse from one of the Readings from Holy Scripture is read.
Almighty God, we thank you for the gift of your holy word: may it be a lantern to our feet, a light upon our paths, and a strength to our lives. Take us and use us to love and serve all people in the power of the Holy Spirit and in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
The Lord be with you.
The Lord bless you.
Let us bless the Lord.
Thanks be to God. (Alleluia)
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with us all, evermore. Amen.
