Welcome and Intimations
The world is filled with the glory of God, and we say,
The hills and valleys are filled with colour, and we say,
The vines and trees are filled with fruit, and we say,
Our tables are overflowing with food, and we say,
Our life is filled with love of family and friends, and we say,
We fill this house of God with our voices, saying,
Thank you, God, as we enter into this service with thanksgiving and praise.
Hymn 233 Come you thankful people come
Holy, holy, holy;
my heart, my heart adores you!
My heart is glad to say the words,
“You are holy Lord”

Prayers for the World
give us this day our daily bread and
forgive us for the times when
we take more than our share of the bread that belongs to all.
Let us help You fill the starving with good things,
not with scraps from our table.
Teach us how to share what is not ours to keep.
Clothe us with Your love that we may complete each
Good work you created us to do.
Place in our hearts Your compassion for each starving child
and use our little acts of love so that they starve no more.
(Prayer supplied by Mary’s Meals)
Hymn 229 We plough the fields and scatter
May the God of peace go with us
As we travel from this place.
May the love of Jesus keep us
firm in hope and full of grace.
