Church Anniversaries

What words do we use to celebrate years of worship together?

What words do we use when we are an ageing congregation?

What words signify the hope of new life in our church?

We gather, celebrating our life together

    With gratitude to those who have gone before.

We gather, looking ahead to our life together

    With anticipation as we step into the future.

We gather to worship and serve the living God

     the God of yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Whoever you are and wherever you are on life’s journey,

you are welcome here at Name of Church

on our special Anniversary Sunday!

Today we celebrate ____ years of witness and worship in name of community!
