EASTER 2 (often called LOW SUNDAY)

Some thoughts on home worship for EASTER 2
(often called LOW SUNDAY)


That was Easter that was! But 
Alleluia. Christ is risen.
He is risen indeed. Alleluia


Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ


We have come to the post Easter period, the great forty days,
until the Ascension day, when we celebrate the after the resurrection
appearances of our Lord Jesus Christ.


Read the story of Jesus appearing to his Apostles on the first Easter
night from
St. John Chapter 20 verse 19 to verse 31


Then say the Collect of the day
Lord God our Father, through our Saviour Jesus Christ
you have assured your children of eternal life and in
baptism you have made us one with him.
Deliver us from the death of sin and raise us to new life in your love
in the fellowship of the Holy Spirit by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.


 Say the Lord’s Prayer
Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours now and forever.  Amen.


Read Psalm 16


Add a few short prayers
Pray especially for Mark and Julie Elton and those caring for Mark
in the ICU at the Royal Stoke hospital.
Pray for any others known to you who are ill or very vulnerable, especially
any in Care homes.

Pray this prayer
God of love and hope, you made the world and care for all creation,
but the world feels strange right now.
The news is full of stories about lockdown.
Some people are worried that they might get ill.
Others are anxious for their family and friends.
Be with them and help them to find peace.
Thank you that even in these anxious times you are with us.
Help us to put our trust in you and keep us safe. Amen.


The peace of the Lord be always with you and the blessing the our
Lord Jesus Christ be with you and those you love, this day and always
