April 18th 2021 Third Sunday of Easter at 10am

Join us at 10am to worship together on the third Sunday of Easter.

We are delighted that Revd Guy Elsmore, Archdeacon of Buckingham, will be presiding for us, with the Revd Will Pearson-Gee, Rector of Buckingham, preaching.

This week our Gospel passage shows the disciples reacting to the appearance of the Risen Christ – their fear and doubts are quelled by Christ’s words. In our passage from Acts, Peter addresses the crowd having healed a lame man: he explains what the power of God can do through his followers and offers the opportunity to repent. Together these readings show us what it means to follow Christ and to be Easter people.

Celtic Daily Prayer- prayers for morning and evening

Canticle from Morning Prayer

Christ, as a light illumine and guide me.

Christ, as a shield overshadow me.

Christ under me; Christ over me; Christ beside me on my left and my right.

This day be within and without me, lowly and meek, yet all-powerful.

Be in the heart of each to whom I speak; in the mouth of each who speaks unto me.

This day be within and without me, lowly and meek, yet all-powerful. Christ as a light;

Christ as a shield; Christ beside me on my left and my right.

Expressions of faith from Evening Prayer

Lord, You have always given bread for the coming day; and though I am poor, today I believe.

Lord, You have always given strength for the coming day; and though I am weak, today I believe. Lord,

You have always given peace for the coming day; and though of anxious heart, today I believe.

Lord, You have always kept me safe in trials; and now, tried as I am, today I believe.

Lord, You have always marked the road for the coming day; and though it may be hidden, today I believe.

Lord, You have always lightened this darkness of mine; and though the night is here, today I believe.

Lord, You have always spoken when time was ripe; and though you be silent now, today I believe.

Options available include materials also available digitally by the Church of England’s Communications team such as Prayer During the Day and Night Prayer, updated daily, from Common Worship, and a recording of the Church of England weekly national online service.

A section called Hymn Line offers callers a small selection of hymns, updated daily. An option entitled ‘Hymns We Love’, provides a hymn and reflection and is based on an initiative by the Connections group
