URC Audio Service

Every Sunday the URC Daily Devotions team sends out a church service in both written and audio format. This has the feel of a radio service, and is in familiar URC style.

This coming Sunday the Rev’d Ruth Whitehead, moderator of our South Western Synod, leads us in worship and reflects on prayer.

To help us as we worship we have a range of lovely hymns and music. We start the service with Alison Kraus’s Down by the River to Pray, we sing Edwin Hatch’s Breathe on me Breath of God and are grateful to the Nevard family for recording George Caird’s Not Far Beyond for us to sing along to. The extremely moving version of the American Shaker Hymn, How Can I Keep From Singing, was recorded by the New York City Virtual Choir and we end the service with William William’s Guide Me O Though Great Redeemer.

The order of worship is here, and the recording of the service is here.
