Comments Off on Sunday Liturgy- Easter 2 Year A

Welcome to St Simon’s



He is Lord, he is Lord,

he is risen from the dead and he is Lord.

Every knee shall bow, ever tongue confess

that Jesus Christ is Lord.

He is King…..

He is love…..


Glory, glory, glory to God (x2)

Glory to God in the heights of the heavens

Peace to God’s people, all people on earth.

Son of the Father, all glory and worship

Praise and thanksgiving to you Lamb of God.

You take away the sin of the word

Have mercy on us, receive our prayer.

Seated in power at the right of the Father

Jesus alone is the Lord the most high.

And with the Spirit of love everlasting

Reigning in glory for ever. Amen


for 2nd Sunday of Easter is always the story of doubting Thomas



The first people to be called “christians”

This day was made by the Lord,

we rejoice and are glad


1st Peter 1. 3 – 9

We have been raised up

GOSPEL ACCLAMATIONAlleluia, alleluia, give thanks to the risen Lord

you are the bread of life
