Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and from Jesus Christ, the Father’s Son, will be with us in truth and love.

player
Who breaks the power of sin and darkness?
Whose love is mighty and so much stronger?
The King of glory, the King above all kings.

Who shakes the whole earth with holy thunder?
Who leaves us breathless in awe and wonder?
The King of glory, the King above all kings.

This is amazing grace, this is unfailing love,
that you would take my place,
that you would bear my cross.
You would lay down your life,
that I would be set free;
Jesus, I sing for all that you’ve done for me.
All that you’ve done for me.

Who brings our chaos back into order?
Who makes the orphan a son and daughter?
The King of glory, the King above all kings.

Who rules the nations with truth and justice,
shines like the sun in all of its brilliance?
The King of glory, the King above all kings.
This is amazing grace, this is unfailing love,...
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain,
and worthy is the King who conquered the grave.
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain,
and worthy is the King who conquered the grave.
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain,
and worthy is the King who conquered the grave.
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain,
and worthy is the King who conquered the grave.
worthy, worthy, worthy.
This is amazing grace, this is unfailing love,...


Confession:

Almighty God, our heavenly Father, we have sinned against you and against our neighbour in thought and word and deed, through negligence, through weakness, through our own deliberate fault. We are truly sorry and repent of all our sins. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, who died for us, forgive us all that is past and grant that we may serve you in newness of life to the glory of your name. Amen.

God has spoken-by his prophets,
spoken his unchanging word;
each from age to age proclaiming
God the one, the righteous Lord;
in the world's despair and turmoil
one firm anchor still holds fast:
God is King, his throne eternal,
God the first and God the last.

God has spoken-by Christ Jesus,
Christ, the everlasting Son;
brightness of the Father's glory,
with the Father ever one:
spoken by the Word incarnate,
Life, before all time began,
light of light, to earth descending,
God, revealed as Son of Man.

God is speaking-by his Spirit
speaking to our hearts again;
in the age-long word expounding
God's own message, now as then.
Through the rise and fall of nations
one sure faith is standing fast:
God abides, his word unchanging,
God the first and God the last.

Creed:

I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin, Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to the dead. The third day he rose again from the dead. He ascended to heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty. From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

1) God Blesses Us So That We Might Bless Others

At the cross of Jesus
I would take my place,
drawn by such a measure
of redeeming grace.
Fill my eyes with sorrow,
lift my eyes to see
Jesus Christ my Saviour
crucified for me.

At the cross of Jesus
patiently he bore
bitter shame and sorrow,
grief and anguish sore.
Through eternal ages
I shall never know
what he had to suffer
why he loved me so.

At the cross of Jesus
even though I be
chief of all the sinners
there is hope for me.
Judged, condemned and guilty
I am lost indeed,
but the cross of Jesus
meets my deepest need.

At the cross of Jesus
pardon is complete:
love and justice mingle,
truth and mercy meet.
Though my sins condemn me
Jesus died instead:
there is full forgiveness
in the blood he shed.

At the cross of Jesus
liberty you gave;
so I come, dear Saviour,
glad to be your slave.
Let your love possess me,
so that all may see
what your death accomplished
on the cross for me.

Give thanks with a grateful heart,
give thanks to the Holy One;
give thanks, because he's given
Jesus Christ, his Son.
Give thanks with a grateful heart,
give thanks to the Holy One;
give thanks, because he's given
Jesus Christ, his Son.

And now let the weak say "I am strong",
let the poor say "I am rich",
because of what the Lord has done for us;
and now let the weak say "I am strong",
let the poor say "I am rich",
because of what the Lord has done for us.

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours now and for ever. Amen.

player

Praise to the Lord
the Almighty, the King of creation!
O my soul, praise him,
for he is your health and salvation!
Come, all who hear;
brothers and sisters, draw near,
praise him in glad adoration!

Praise to the Lord,
above all things so mightily reigning;
keeping us safe at his side,
and so gently sustaining.
Have you not seen
all you have needed has been
met by his gracious ordaining?

Praise to the Lord,
who shall prosper our work and defend us;
surely his goodness and mercy
shall daily attend us.
Ponder anew
what the Almighty can do
who with his love will befriend us.

Praise to the Lord-
O let all that is in me adore him!
All that has life and breath,
come now with praises before him!
Let the 'Amen!'
sound from his people again-
gladly we praise and adore him!

May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. (2 Corinthians 13:14)

Theme: The Lord is Compassionate and Gracious (Psalm 103:8-10)

player

The Lord is trustworthy in all he promises
and faithful in all he does.
The Lord upholds all who fall
and lifts up all who are bowed down.


player

All people that on earth do dwell,

Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice:

serve him with joy, his praises tell,

come now before him and rejoice!


Know that the Lord is God indeed,

he formed us all without our aid,

we are his flock he loves to feed,

the sheep who by his hand are made.


O enter then his gates with praise,

and in his courts his love proclaim;

give thanks and bless him all your days:

let every tongue confess his name.


The Lord our mighty God is good,

his mercy is for ever sure;

his truth at all times firmly stood,

and shall from age to age endure.

Confession:

Almighty God, you have raised Jesus from the grave and crowned him Lord of all. We confess that we have not bowed before him or acknowledged his rule in our lives. We have gone along with the way of the world and failed to give him glory. Forgive us and raise us from sin, that we may be your faithful people, obeying the commands of our Lord Jesus Christ, who rules the world and is head of the church, his body. Amen.

1) Jesus Rescues Those Who Believe 

player

player

Lord, for the years your love has kept and guided,

urged and inspired us, cheered us on our way,

sought us and saved us, pardoned and provided,

Lord of the years, we bring our thanks today.


Lord, for that word, the word of life which fires us,

speaks to our hearts and sets our souls ablaze,

teaches and trains, rebukes us and inspires us,

Lord of the word, receive your people's praise.


Lord, for our land, in this our generation,

spirits oppressed by pleasure, wealth and care;

for young and old, for commonwealth and nation,

Lord of our land, be pleased to hear our prayer.


Lord, for our world; where men disown and doubt you,

loveless in strength, and comfortless in pain;

hungry and helpless, lost indeed without you;

Lord of the world, we pray that Christ may reign.


Lord, for ourselves; in living power remake us,

self on the cross and Christ upon the throne;

past put behind us, for the future take us,

Lord of our lives, to live for Christ alone.

2) Rescue is Entirely God's Work

player

player
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus blood and righteousness
I dare not trust the sweetest frame
But wholly trust in Jesus name

Christ alone; cornerstone
Weak made strong; in the Saviour's love
Through the storm, He is Lord
Lord of all


When Darkness seems to hide His face
I rest on His unchanging grace
In every high and stormy gale
My anchor holds within the veil

When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh, may I then in Him be found;
Dressed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless stand before the throne.

player

Alleluia, sing to Jesus!
his the sceptre, his the throne;
Alleluia! - his the triumph,
his the victory alone.
Hear the songs of holy Zion
thunder like a mighty flood:
Jesus out of every nation
has redeemed us by His blood.

Alleluia! - not as orphans
are we left in sorrow now;
Alleluia! - he is near us,
faith believes, but knows not how.
Though the clouds from sight received him
Whom the angels now adore,
shall our hearts forget His promise,
I am with you evermore?

Alleluia! - bread of heaven,
Here on earth our food, our stay;
Alleluia! - here the sinful
Come to you from day to day.
Intercessor, friend of sinners,
earth's Redeemer, plead for me
where the songs of all the sinless
sweep across the crystal sea.

The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace.
Amen.

Go in peace to love and serve the Lord
In the name of Christ. Amen.

You're the word of God the Father
from before the world began;
every star and every planet
has been fashioned by your hand.
All creation holds together
by the power of your voice.
Let the skies declare your glory,
let the land and seas rejoice!

You're the Author of creation
and the Lord of every man
and your cry of love rings out
across the lands.

Yet you left the gaze of angels,
came to seek and save the lost,
and exchanged the joy of Heaven
for the anguish of a cross.
With a prayer you fed the hungry,
with a word you calmed the sea,
yet how silently you suffered
that the guilty may go free.

With a shout you rose victorious
wresting victory from the grave,
and ascended into Heaven
leading captives in your way.
Now you stand before the Father
interceding for your own;
from each tribe and tongue and nation
you are leading sinners home.

1) The Son Does All and Only What The Father Does (v19-20)

player

O Word of God incarnate,
O wisdom from on high,
O truth unchanged, unchanging,
O light of our dark sky,
We praise thee for the radiance
That from the hallowed page,
A lantern to our footsteps,
Shines on from age to age.

The church from her dear Master
Received the gift divine,
And still that light she lifteth
O'er all the earth to shine;
It is the precious treasury
Where gems of truth are stored;
It is the heaven-drawn picture
Of Christ, the living Word.

It floateth like a banner
Before God's host unfurled;
It shineth like a beacon
Above the shadowed world;
It is the chart and compass
That, o'er life's surging sea,
'Mid mists, and rocks, and quicksands,
Still guides, O Christ, to thee.

O make thy church, dear Saviour,
A lamp of burnished gold,
To bear before the nations
Thy true light, as of old;
O teach thy wandering pilgrims
By this their path to trace,
Till, clouds and darkness ended,
They see thee face to face.

2) Jesus Gives Life to Those Who Believe His Words (v21-29)

player

player

As the heavens are higher than the Earth,
so his ways are higher than the ways of this world,
and his thoughts run deeper than the mind of man;
Father, break into our darkened hearts.

Come and drink the river of his Word
if you thirst for water that can satisfy;
come and join the banquet at the Master’s feast
where his love and faithfulness provide.

I will trust in you as you speak to me,
I will turn to you as you call my name,
As the rain gives life on this arid ground
so your Word will bring your children home.

Come and listen to his gentle voice
for the words he speaks to us are Spirit and life;
Come and seek your Saviour while he may be found,
sure that Jesus’ words can never lie.

I will trust in you as you speak to me,
I will turn to you as you call my name,
As the rain gives life on this arid ground
so your Word will bring your children home.

3) Jesus Judges Those Who Reject His Words (v21-29)

Prayers:

player

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours now and for ever. Amen.

player
Jesus! the name high over all
in hell or earth or sky;
angels and men before it fall
and devils fear and fly,
and devils fear and fly.

Jesus! the name to sinners dear,
the name to sinners given;
it scatters all their guilty fear,
it turns their hell to heaven,
it turns their hell to heaven.

Jesus the prisoner's fetters breaks,
and bruises Satan's head;
power into strengthless souls he speaks
and life into the dead,
and life into the dead.

O that the world might taste and see
the riches of his grace!
The arms of love that welcome me
would all mankind embrace,
would all mankind embrace.

His righteousness alone I show,
his saving grace proclaim;
this is my work on earth below,
to cry: 'Behold the Lamb!'
to cry: 'Behold the Lamb!'

Happy, if with my latest breath
I may but gasp His name,
preach him to all, and cry in death,
'Behold, behold the Lamb!'
'Behold, behold the Lamb!'

Charles Wesley

God the Father, who loved the world so much that he sent his only Son, give you grace to prepare for eternal life. God the Son, who comes to us as Redeemer and Judge, reveal to you the path from darkness to light. God the Holy Spirit, by whose working the virgin, Mary conceived the Christ, help you bear the fruit of holiness. Amen.

Go in peace to love and serve the Lord
In the name of Christ. Amen.
