Worship Notes and Weekly Intercessions for Sunday


Dear Friends,

As the Christmas season draws to a close and we think about taking down the decorations many Churches will observe Epiphany, which falls on Saturday, in worship on Sunday.  With that in mind I prepared the Worship Notes for Sunday and will be using them in a local parish church here in Orkney. 

I suggest an all age activity using frankincense and myrrh (you’ll need to prepare in advance), a Call to Worship based on the hymn Hail to the Lord’s Anointed (which needs the verse about kings falling down before Jesus which isn’t in every hymnal), a short sample sermon, an Affirmation of Faith, sample intercessions and a blessing based on some work by Howard Thurman as well as a range of hymns to chose from.  I hope you find them useful.

Just above the Worship Notes are some intercessions written this week by the Revd Helen Everard designed to be used when a congregation is marking Epiphany and reflecting on some of the news stories this week.  Again I hope these are useful.

With every good wish


The Rev’d Andy Braunston
Minister for Digital Worship
