Eternal God, we gather as your people to worship you
By your Spirit break the bonds that hold our minds captive to our concerns in our lives, that we may know the freedom of new possibilities in our faith experience.
Transform our lives that we may go forth even more deeply committed to serving your will in the world.
Be with us ever faithful God, and set our feet upon paths that help us to fulfill your commandments and honour your Holy Spirit.
Prayer Of Approach: Holy and Gracious Lord, draw near to us as we come to a time of worshipful gathering. In word and song we seek to offer our praise. Lead us forward as a humble people of faith. Amen

Sharing With Youth
Gathering In Prayer: Loving God, with a variety of talents and gifts, with an array of interests, we come to this place dedicated to your glory. We follow a path that has been well worn by those who have come before us.
We honour their dedication and we seek to also follow in the ways of Jesus Christ. As a national body of faith we join with others across the nation paying tribute to God and sharing in the sacred texts that reveal the stories of old which guide us now. Come among us, O God, and grant us your blessings and peace. Amen
