As usual, the weekly service sheet can be found on our News page, if you would like to use it for personal worship at home.
And we also wanted to share with you the words for this hymn by Shirley Murray – Community of Christ
Community of Christ, who make the cross your own
Live out your creed and risk your life for God alone:
The God who wears your face, to whom all worlds belong,
Whose children are of every race, and every song.
Community of Christ! Look past the Church’s door
And see the refugee, the hungry and the poor:
Take hands with the oppressed, the jobless in your street
Take towel and water, that you wash your neighbour’s feet.
Community of Christ through whom the Word must sound
Cry out for justice and for peace the whole world round:
Disarm the powers that war and all that can destroy,
Turn bombs to bread, and tears of anguish into joy.
When menace melts away, so shall God’s will be done,
The climate of the world be peace and Christ its sun;
Our currency be love, and kindliness our law,
Our food and faith be shared as one forevermore.
Worship Services are held at 10am every Sunday. For those unable to join us in person, a recorded version will be available from 9am each week.
