Travelling To Church, A Gathering* Worship Resource Service  June 2022





The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all.

Response: And also with you.


*INTROIT: #14 MV “Where Two or Three Are Gathered”  

Where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there, I am there.


One: How did you travel to church today?
(Everyone call out or think about the way you travelled to church.)
Why did you come to church today?

All: We came to show our love for God, with all our heart and all our soul,
with all our strength and all our mind. We came to be inspired in loving our neighbours and loving ourselves.

One: Come, lovers of God, let us worship in hope and in joy.

*HYMN: #222 VU “Come, Let Us Sing”

1 Come, let us sing to the Lord our song,
we have stood silently too long;
surely the Lord deserves our praise,
so joyfully thank God for our days.

2 O thirsty soul, come drink at the well;
God’s living waters will never fail.
Surely the Lord will help you to stand,
strengthened and comforted by God’s hand.

3 You dwell among us and cause us to pray,
and walk with each other following your way;
our precious brothers and sisters will grow
in the fulfilling love they know.

4 Deserts shall bloom and mountains shall sing
to the desire of all living things.
Come, all you creatures, high and low,
let your praises endlessly flow.


God of the journey, we have walked, rolled, motored, hopped, wheeled, bussed, and transited to this place, just to be here with you and with each other. God of all our pathways, our weekly journey has taken us many places, and as we’ve travelled, we’ve faced both joys and sorrows, celebrations and devastation, success and failure. We bring all of this with us this morning, offering each treasure and burden of our life into your care. Bless us as we rest from our journey for just a little bit this morning, finding refreshment and renewal in being here with you, with Jesus, and with each other. Amen.

THE LORD’S PRAYER: to be sung, Linnea Good Version


MINISTRY OF MUSIC:  Parker Murray with Kendall Perry and Declan Rockwell


SCRIPTURE: Luke 10:25–37 Read by Steve Mollins

“The travellers on the road to Jericho”

One: Herein is Wisdom.

All: Thanks be to God.

*HYMN: #89 MV “Love Is The Touch”

Love is the touch of intangible joy,
Love is the force that no fear can destroy;
Love is the goodness we gladly applaud;
God is where love is, for love is of God.

Love is the lilt in a lingering voice;
Love is the hope that can make us rejoice;
Love is the cure for the frightened and flawed;
God is where love is, for love is of God.

Love is the light in the tunnel of pain;
Love is the will to be whole once again;
Love is the trust of a friend on the road;
God is where love is, for love is of God.

Love is the Maker and Spirit and Son;
Love is the kingdom their will has begun;
Love is the path which the saints all have trod;
God is where love is, for love is of God.


SERMON: “Travelling To Church?” Nancy Small  


MINISTRY OF MUSIC:  Parker Murray with Kendall Perry and Declan Rockwell


*OFFERTORY HYMN: #544 VU “In Gratitude and Humble Trust” 

CALL TO PRAYER#85 MV  “Take, O Take Me as I Am”


*HYMN: #639 VU “One, More Step Along the World I Go” vs 1-4

One more step along the world I go
One more step along the world I go
From the old things to the new
Keep me travelling along with you
And it’s from the old I travel to the new
Keep me travelling along with you.

Round the corner of the world I turn
More and more about the world I learn
All the new things that I see
You’ll be looking at along with me
And it’s from the old I travel to the new
Keep me travelling along with you.

As I travel through the bad and good
Keep me travelling the way I should
Where I see no way to go
You’ll be telling me the way, I know.
And it’s from the old I travel to the new
Keep me travelling along with you.

Give me courage when the world is rough
Keep me loving though the world is tough
Leap and sing in all I do
Keep me travelling along with you
And it’s from the old I travel to the new
Keep me travelling along with you.


*POSTLUDE HYMN: #639 VU “One, More Step Along the World I Go” vs 5

You are older than the world can be

You are younger than the life in me
Ever old and every new
Keep me travelling along with you
And it’s from the old I travel to the new
Keep me travelling along with you.
