This Worship at Home version of the service that will be held at Kingswood on September 11th has been produced by Malcolm Wilson a Local Preacher in Nottingham Trent Valley Circuit. Although this worship was prepared before the news of the death of our Queen, the theme 'Saved to serve' is a reminder of the Queen's faith and life of service she lived.
STF 83 Praise my soul the King of heaven
Open my ears, so that I may hear your word anew today
Open my heart, so that I may be moved and inspired by your Spirit.
Speak your word to me
Hold a moment of stillness and listen, listen to all the noises happening around you,
listen for the still, small voice of the Spirit of God, breathing over all things, perhaps
speaking to you?
Walk alongside me, this day, as I strive to be one of your people of light and love
In Jesus’ name
Opening prayers written by Emma Dobson from The Vine at Home produced by twelvebaskets.
Reading Psalm 51:1-10
STF 507 O for a heart to praise my God
Reading: 1 Timothy 1:12-14
‘I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me the strength, that he considered me trustworthy, appointing me to his service. Even though I was a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent man, I was shown mercy because I acted in ignorance and unbelief. The grace of our Lord Jesus was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.’ (1 Tim 1:12-14)

STF 611 Brother, sister, let me serve you
we praise you for your goodness and mercy
that followed your servant, Elizabeth, all the days of her life,
and for her faithfulness
in the tasks to which you called her.
Father of all,
we give you thanks and praise.
We thank you that for your loving servant
the tribulations of this world are over and death is past,
and we pray that you will bring us with her
to the joy of your perfect kingdom;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Eternal God we pray for your comfort and blessing on the Royal Family at this time.
We pray for our new King, Charles III, that you will guide him and bless him with your Holy Spirit that he will serve you and your people with all wisdom through Jesus Christ, his and our Lord. Amen.
Spend this time praying for those people who mean the most to you.
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial
and deliver us from evil
For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours
now and forever.
STF 549 Come let us use the grace divine
May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all now and evermore. Amen
God Save the KIng
