We are the people of God.
The Scripture reminds us that we still sin.
We need to confess our failures, knowing that Jesus intercedes for us with the Father, who freely forgives us.
So let us draw near to God with sincerity and confidence.
Almighty God, our heavenly Father,
we have gone our own way,
not loving you as we ought,
nor loving our neighbour as ourselves. We have sinned against you in thought, word and deed and in what we have failed to do.
We deserve your condemnation.
Father, forgive us.
Help us to love you and our neighbour, and to live for your honour and glory;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Our God fulfils his promises
and is true to his word.
We have confessed our sins.
God has forgiven us,
because Christ died for us.
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he who is faithful and just will forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
(1 John 1:8-9)
Give thanks to the Lord,

Let your way be known on earth,
your saving power among all nations.
Send out your light and truth

Hear our prayers, O Lord,
for we put our trust in you.

For our regulars, please be generous in sorting the mission of our church. You can either contribute through cash or through our preferred methods of electronic giving as explained in the bulletin"
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ,
and the love of God,
and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit,
be with us all evermore.
Go in peace to love and serve the Lord
In the name of Christ. Amen.
