Song “Drinking from my saucer”

As our cup runneth over Lord
Let us never forget our brothers and sisters whose cups have run dry

Let us share and pour out our blessings to help them bear their load.

We say the Lord’s Prayer in our own language


Reading Acts 13v44-52

44 On the next Sabbath almost the whole city gathered to hear the word of the Lord. 45 When the Jews saw the crowds, they were filled with jealousy. They began to contradict what Paul was saying and heaped abuse on him.

46 Then Paul and Barnabas answered them boldly: “We had to speak the word of God to you first. Since you reject it and do not consider yourselves worthy of eternal life, we now turn to the Gentiles. 47 For this is what the Lord has commanded us:

“‘I have made you[f] a light for the Gentiles,
    that you[g] may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.’[h]

48 When the Gentiles heard this, they were glad and honored the word of the Lord; and all who were appointed for eternal life believed.

49 The word of the Lord spread through the whole region.50 But the Jewish leaders incited the God-fearing women of high standing and the leading men of the city. They stirred up persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and expelled them from their region. 51 So they shook the dust off their feet as a warning to them and went to Iconium. 52 And the disciples were filled with joy and with the Holy Spirit.



We pray tonight for all those we know who need our help and prayers who we carry in our hearts tonight. 


Spirit of the Living God present with us now enter their bodies, minds and spirits and heal them of all that harms them. Let your angels be beside them at this time. In Jesus Name we pray.  


Song “Praise you in the storm”


Closing Responses


Bless to us

The moon that is above us

The earth that is beneath us

Your image within us

The rest that is before us

This night

And every night
