Chalice lighting and welcome

Let this be a light of welcome, of hope and of joy.

You may have had a busy day-you are here

You may have had a quiet day-you are here

You may have had a difficult week-you are here

You may have faced challenges-you are here

You are here, bring joy or sadness.

Be calm in this moment.

May you find the power in this space to meet concerns head on, or to feel the freedom to leave them at the door.

Bring yourself to this time of worship, be you, with us in peace and love.
