Collect for the Third Sunday of Epiphany
(23 January)
Almighty God,
whose Son revealed in signs and miracles
the wonder of your saving presence:
renew your people with your heavenly grace,
and in all our weakness
sustain us by your mighty power;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

WORSHIP AT HOME
Worship at Home
When it isn't possible to join with the local church, this outline is designed to help you have a short time of worship as a household.

You are also invited to follow the Royal School of Church Music's Hymn of the Day, and Sunday Self-Service, a simple act of worship with music, readings and prayers which will change weekly.
(29 March 2020)
Spiritual Communion
The term 'Spiritual Communion' describes the means of grace by which a person, prevented for some serious reason from sharing in a celebration of the Eucharist, nonetheless shares in the communion of Jesus Christ. You are invited to join in these prayers as an opportunity to give thanks for your communion with him while unable to be present at the Eucharist.

Prayer
In the waters of baptism we were made God's children
and called to serve one another as we have been served by Christ.
Therefore let us pray for one another and for all people
who will not or cannot pray for themselves.
Amen.
