Worship Notes for 20th November

Worship Notes

Dear Friends,

Each week we gather in church and chapel, community centre or around a screen to worship.  In worship we find God – in the music and silence, in the word read and proclaimed, in bread and wine and in each other. 

Faithfully, week after week, ministers, elders, and lay preachers lead God’s people in worship.  Part of my ministry is to help with that task by co-ordinating the provision of Worship Notes which assist in the careful preparation of worship. Our Worship Notes offer all the prayers needed (and some that might not be!), notes on the readings that could be built into a sermon, and suggestions for hymns (which might be used or might stimulate the thinking of those who lead worship).

This week we have two sets of notes for you.  The Rev’d Elizabeth Gray King has crafted a service to be used to mark Safeguarding Sunday which falls this coming Sunday.  I have prepared notes, also for this Sunday, which looks at the theme of Christ the King.  We hope these notes will help as people prepare worship for this week.  The notes can be found here https://urc.org.uk/your-faith/prayer-and-worship/worship-notes/

This resource is designed to help plan worship locally. We also offer services by PowerPoint (which can be adapted) if you’d prefer to facilitate worship that way as a form of pulpit supply.  Sign up here if you’d like to access those materials and drop me a line so I can send you the current set of PowerPoint material for pulpit supply along wit the audio and print versions to distribute locally to those who can’t get to church and don’t have access to the Internet.

I hope you find them useful – do let us know your thoughts on these resources as you use them.

with every good wish


The Rev’d Andy Braunston
Minister for Digital Worship
