Call to Worship
(based on Psalm 30)

We gather to praise and honour the Lord, our Saving God.
Today, we sing our reverent thanks to our loving God.
As individuals and as a community, we praise and thank
our God for giving us a sense of healing and wholeness.

When we cried out to you in our sorrow and despair,
you turned our night-time grief into morning’s joy.
Listening God, we rejoice in the security you give us,
because of your past mercy and goodness towards us.

O Lord our God, we will thank you always and forever.
We will not be silent! Your love for us is so wonderful!
Holy God, you have turned our sorrows into gladness,
and our despair into joy. O God, how great is your love! Amen.
