Call to Worship/Praise
Because he inclined his ear to us, therefore we will call on him as long as we live
Holy God, Lord of the harvest
you send your labourers to spread the gospel:
call us to this work,
equip us by your Spirit
and send us to proclaim your good news;
through Jesus Christ our Lord;
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God forever and ever.
Collects for Music Sunday
God of all creation, for whom the church, in liturgy and song, has borne faithful witness through the centuries;
let us be your instruments of praise, that in us may be found that new dimension of sound which tunes our souls and bodies to the infinite beauty of your truth and the profound glory of your eternal light.
For you reign, Trinity in unison, God in harmony, now and forever. Amen.
Listen to the Good News proclaimed by Matthew 9:35-10:8
