Home Church Resources – Trinity1 – Sunday 14th June

Theme: ‘Call to action’



Opening Hymn:   CP322 Soul of my Saviour, sanctify my breast


Opening Prayers 

Loving Lord, your grace draws us to your presence;
your peace unites us in your love;
your hope inspires us to praise your glory.
May our worship be worthy of you.

We come before you, gracious God, just as we are.
We come with our weaknesses and our vulnerabilities.
We come with our fears and apprehensions.
We come with faith and doubt.
We come to offer and receive.
We come to you, the king of love –
in the name of your Son,
and in the power of your Spirit.

A prayer of confession

Lord, you have called us to the privilege of service,
but we have failed to serve.
You have given us the blessing of peace,
but we have chosen discord.
You have loved as a shepherd tends his sheep,
but we have strayed from your way.
Forgive us, and show us the path of obedience and faithfulness
that your Son trod.
In his name, we pray.


Psalm 100

The Gospel:

Jesus gives his disciples the commission and authority to replicate and extend this ministry more widely.

Audio reflection: based on the Gospel 


  • When do you most feel like you are doing Jesus’ work ?

Choir Anthem: Ave verum (Mozart)


Prayers of intercession:

Loving Lord, you call and equip us to serve you. Watch over those who risk their own safety by caring for oppressed believers. Strengthen and protect all those who are persecuted for sharing their faith in places where living out their Christian faith in peace is not allowed.
Lord, hear us.
Lord, graciously hear us.

Loving Lord, you empower us to live out our discipleship. Give wisdom, imagination and the strength to persevere to those who face apathy as they seek to live out their discipleship.
Lord, hear us.
Lord, graciously hear us.

Loving Lord, you understand what it means to suffer for what is right. Give comfort and courage to those who are unjustly imprisoned, intimidated and tortured because of their faith.
Lord, hear us.
Lord, graciously hear us.

Loving Lord, you taught us to pray for those who abuse and hurt us. We pray for people who persecute those who hold different beliefs from their own; may they be touched by faith and their hearts be opened to love, that the world may be united in your love.
Lord, hear us.
Lord, graciously hear us.

In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray.

Collect for this Sunday:

God of truth help us to keep your law of love and to walk in ways of wisdom that we may find true life in Jesus Christ your Son.

Affirmation of Faith:

We believe in God the Father
From whom every family in heaven and on earth is named.

We believe in God the Son
Who lives in our hearts through faith and fills us with his love.

We believe in God the Holy Spirit
Who strengthens us with power from on high.

We believe in one God
Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

A sending out prayer

Go to serve; go to love;
go to bring healing; go to bring peace;
go in the strength of the Father;
go in the power of Jesus;
go united by the Spirit.
Go – and know his grace.

Closing Hymn: CP 622 Will you come and follow me
