6th Sunday of Easter

Hymns marked with an asterisk (*) are not mentioned again in other sections but may be considered appropriate elsewhere.

During this Easter season, many readings refer to, or reflect upon, Jesus' death, resurrection and ascension - culminating in Pentecost Sunday on 31 May. Many suggestions may prove suitable for other Sundays. 

In addition, a range of hymns published on StF+ are suggested for this period:

A new day dawns
And did God’s feet in ancient time
God eternal, timeless moment
God who knows our darkest moments
In this house all people will be welcome
Like Thomas
Mary, you were there
One, two, three for you and me
Safe, locked inside that upper room
The name of Jesus
The world is fraught with danger
Was it the shaking ground that moved
What peace is there for tarnished lives
When our futures are uncertain

Acts 17: 22-31

*Deep in the shadows of the past (StF 463)
How small a spark has lit a living fire! (StF 408)

Because you have said 'Do this for my sake' (StF 574) (communion hymn)
