Church of England Diocese of Chester Saint Michael and All Angels, Macclesfield

Fifth Sunday of Easter - 10th May

Alleluia! Christ is risen! He is risen indeed, alleluia!

Our online Sunday worship 'St Michael's at Home' continues; we're delighted to lead you in worship from our various homes around Macclesfield.

As you join us today, our Bible reading is from John 14:1-14 - Jesus' statement that in His Father's house are many rooms. Martin explores how this might speak to us in our present situation, and what resources are available to help us continue growing as followers of Jesus.

Input from a number of our church members includes introducing the Holy Family using characters to make you smile!

You can join in our worship by downloading the Order of Service below.

For copyright reasons we do not include song tracks within this service but we suggest a few songs you might hum, sing or simply listen to, at various points in the service. Pause the video at these points, and click on the appropriate link displayed below. If you open this in a separate tab, after the song you can easily return to the recorded service where you left off.

First song: Praise my soul, the King of Heaven

Second song: Nothing's to big, big, big for His power

Third song: You are the vine; we are the branches

Choice of final song: Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart - Congregational version or by Robin Mark.

Thank you for joining us in worship. If you would like to contribute in some way, perhaps with a reading or acting out the storytelling, or you'd like to share something you've experienced in worship or you'd like us to support you in prayer then please do get in touch.
