This specially created short act of worship have been produced as we are unable to attend church physically. If you are well enough why not spend a few moments with God, knowing that other people are sharing this act of worship with you?
If you have members of your church or community who aren’t online, you might want to consider printing the services sheets and other resources from our website and posting them on. You can buy stamps online. Royal Mail has advice on its service during the pandemic if you have any questions or concerns: www.royalmail.com/coronavirus
If you are printing and distributing these Acts of Worship please add your church's CCLi number and add the songs to your annual report.

A prayer with responses, inspired by hymns in Singing the Faith and elsewhere.
As well as referring to the Pentecost story told in Acts 2: 1-21, the prayer draws upon a number of hymns by contemporary writers.
"Streets are filled with many people". . . a new hymn by Clare Stainsby and Raj Bharath Patta - Methodist ministers serving in the Manchester and Stockport Distirct.
With its striking contemporary language, Clare and Raj's hymn not only captures a sense of the air of celebration in which the Pentecost events took place, but challenges and refreshes our understanding of this familiar Christian story.
Other Pentecost resources
