Covenant... A way of Life | Sunday

On the first Sunday of 2021 join the ministers of the circuit as they lead the Covenant Service. The service premieres on YouTube at 10.30am and includes a Love Feast. You may like to have ready a glass of water, and a biscuit or cake to eat near the end of the service.

I am no longer my own but yours.
Your will, not mine, be done in all things,
     wherever you may place me,
     in all that I do
          and in all that I may endure;
     when there is work for me
         and when there is none;
     when I am troubled
          and when I am at peace.
Your will be done
     when I am valued
          and when I am disregarded;
     when I find fulfilment
          and when it is lacking;
     when I have all things,
          and when I have nothing.
I willing offer
all that I have and am
     to serve you,
     as and where you choose.

Glorious and blessèd God,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
     you are mine and I am yours.
     May it be so for ever.
     Let this covenant now made on earth
     be fulfilled in heaven.  Amen.

The Covenant Prayer
