You may be at home or travelling, the members of Kingswood Methodist Church, hope you can join in and sing along (quietly if you are on a bus or train!) with this special Worship at Home Service which has been prepared for you by Revd Christine Fox and Jessica Bullett celebrating 52 years of the Toddlers group at Kingswood.
Prayer of praise and thanks
Dear loving God you are amazing – you made people in all shapes and sizes, all beginning small and then growing up. Thank you that children teach us so much about wonder at your beautiful world. Thank you that you made grown-ups to care for the children. Father God you know what it is like to have a child – your son Jesus came to earth to show us how much you love us and care for each one of us. And today we thank you for the people who have run toddlers here for over 50 years and that so many people have benefited, finding friendship and experiencing your love though them. We praise and worship you. Amen
A Children's Prayer for Ukraine
Loving God, we pray for peace in Ukraine.
Help keep people safe and protect them from being hurt.
Please care for children separated from their families,
Please help people who have had to leave their homes.
We pray for love and peace, everywhere.
In the name of Jesus, the Prince of Peace,

The Lord’s prayer
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 for ever.
