We meet in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit


God, Creator of all things, we call upon Your presence.


Beloved God.
We come to You as Your creative people.

Come and be with us.
‘For where two or three come together in my name, I am there with them.’

Your sole presence draws us together. Your Spirit is our home.


In Your presence we are community..
Spirit of the creative God you are like a wind. You come and go at Your will.

In your freedom –.
You dance among us. You touch our broken hearts.

In your mystery –.
You remain silent. You are still.

In your grace –.
You keep your promise. You are present. Amen


In Your presence we confess our failings.
We have failed to see Your presence in the world around us..
Creative father, forgive us.

We have failed to see Your presence in each other. .
Creative Spirit, deliver us.

We have failed to see Your presence in ourselves. .
Creative Son, heal us. Amen


Psalm 111

Praise the Lord

I will extol the Lord with all my heart
    in the council of the upright and in the assembly.

Great are the works of the Lord;
    they are pondered by all who delight in them.
Glorious and majestic are his deeds,
    and his righteousness endures forever.
He has caused his wonders to be remembered;
    the Lord is gracious and compassionate.
He provides food for those who fear him;
    he remembers his covenant forever.

He has shown his people the power of his works,
    giving them the lands of other nations.
The works of his hands are faithful and just;
    all his precepts are trustworthy.
They are established for ever and ever,
    enacted in faithfulness and uprightness.
He provided redemption for his people;
    he ordained his covenant forever—
    holy and awesome is his name.

10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom;
    all who follow his precepts have good understanding.
    To him belongs eternal praise.



Before the ending of the day,
Creator of the world, we pray
That you, with steadfast love, would keep.
Your watch around us while we sleep..
From evil dreams defend our sight,
From fears and terrors of the night;.
Tread underfoot our deadly foe
That we no sinful thought may know.
O Father, that we ask be done

Through Jesus Christ, your only Son;.
And Holy Spirit, by whose breath
Our souls are raised to life from death.


Visit this place, O Lord, we pray,
and drive far from it the snares of the enemy;
may your holy angels dwell with us and guard us in peace,.
and may your blessing be always upon us;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.


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.

The Conclusion

In peace we will lie down and sleep; .
for you alone, Lord, make us dwell in safety.

Abide with us, Lord Jesus, .
for the night is at hand and the day is now past.

As the night watch looks for the morning, .
so do we look for you, O Christ.

The Lord bless us and watch over us;
the Lord make his face shine upon us and be gracious to us;.
the Lord look kindly on us and give us peace.


Spirit of the living God, help us – .
to claim our own way to be creative,
to be a creative source of life-giving presence and hope,
to hold a creative presence, or absence, from your people,.
to find our own place in your creative community.

Creative Spirit,
in Your presence we are whole,.
we are blessed, we are one..
