Church at Home – Sunday 2nd August

Order of Service


Hey You! – God Calls, often more than once, sometimes very loudly, he might be worth listening to.

Opening Song – Here I am to worship / the Call

A time of Confession

Lord our God,
in our sin we have avoided your call.
Our love for you is like a morning cloud,
like the dew that goes away early.
Have mercy on us;
deliver us from judgement;
bind up our wounds and revive us;
in Jesus Christ our Lord.

Response to Confession Song: I will trust in you – Lauren Daigle


Isaiah 55:1-5 (audio available on webpage link)

Invitation to the thirsty

55 ‘Come, all you who are thirsty,
    come to the waters;
and you who have no money,
    come, buy and eat!
Come, buy wine and milk
    without money and without cost.
Why spend money on what is not bread,
    and your labour on what does not satisfy?
Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good,
    and you will delight in the richest of fare.
Give ear and come to me;
    listen, that you may live.
I will make an everlasting covenant with you,
    my faithful love promised to David.
See, I have made him a witness to the peoples,
    a ruler and commander of the peoples.
Surely you will summon nations you know not,
    and nations you do not know will come running to you,
because of the Lord your God,
    the Holy One of Israel,
    for he has endowed you with splendour.’


Song: Awake My Soul

(Warning: very crazy/busy backgrounds, consider it symbolic of a busy market place)

Closing song – Let it Be Known

(No Lyrics on screen but please stay to the very end)

Discussion Questions

  1. In the “new normal” how have we been able show the Gospel
  2. In the “new normal” moving forward how can we share the Gospel
  3. In the “new normal” how can we make our voices heard
