Calls to Worship & Blessings

Calls to Worship and Blessings

Our worship services usually include a Call to Worship at the beginning to help us to focus our minds on worshipping God and to prepare us for worship. At the end of the service there is usually a blessing (or Benediction) that is spoken to all those present.

There are lots of wonderful prayers, poems and readings that have been written for these very purposes but we think it is important to read and hear directly from the Bible. There are lots of Bible passages that can be used for calls to worship and benediction; below is a useful but not complete list.
