Theme: God's unfailing love and mercy (Psalm 90:14)

player

The earth is the Lord's, for he made it:

Come, let us adore him.

Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness:

Come, let us adore him.

The mercy of the Lord is everlasting:

Come, let us adore him.

Lord, open our lips.

And our mouths shall proclaim your praise.

player

You have called us out of darkest night

Into Your glorious light

That we may sing the wonders of

The risen Christ

May our every breath retell the grace

That broke into our strife

With boundless love and deepest joy

With endless life

May the peoples praise You

Let the nations be glad

All Your blessing comes

That we may praise

May praise the Name of Jesus

All the earth is Yours and all within

Each harvest is Your own

And from Your hand we give to You

To make Christ known

May the seeds of mercy grow in us

For those who have not heard

May songs of praise build lives of grace

To spread Your Word

May the peoples praise You...

This our holy privilege to declare

Your praises and Your name

To every nation, tribe and tongue,

Your church proclaims

May the peoples praise You...

Confession

Have mercy on me, O God, in your faithful love, in your great tenderness wipe away my offences; wash me thoroughly from my guilt, purify me from my sin. For I am well aware of my offences, my sin is constantly in mind. Against you, you alone, I have sinned, I have done what you see to be wrong, that you may show your saving justice when you pass sentence, and your victory may appear when you give judgment, remember, I was born guilty, a sinner from the moment of conception. But you delight in sincerity of heart, and in secret you teach me wisdom. God, create in me a clean heart, renew within me a resolute spirit, do not thrust me away from your presence, do not take away from me your spirit of holiness. Give me back the joy of your salvation, sustain in me a generous spirit. Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will speak out your praise. Sacrifice gives you no pleasure, burnt offering you do not desire. Sacrifice to God is a broken spirit, a broken, contrite heart you never scorn.
Psalm 51:1-6, 10-12, 15-17, NJB

player

Faithful one, so unchanging,

Ageless One, You're my Rock of peace.

Lord of all, I depend on You,

I call out to You again and again.

I call out to You again and again.


You are my rock in times of trouble.

You lift me up when I fall down.

All through the storm Your love is the anchor,

My hope is in You alone.

Sing to God new songs of worship-

all his deeds are marvellous;

he has brought salvation to us

with his hand and holy arm.

He has shown to all the nations

righteousness and saving power;

he recalled his truth and mercy

to his people Israel.

Sing to God new songs of worship-

earth has seen his victory;

let the lands of earth be joyful

praising him with thankfulness.

Sound upon the harp his praises,

play to him with melody;

let the trumpets sound his triumph,

show your joy to God the King!

Sing to God new songs of worship-

let the sea now make a noise;

all on earth and in the waters,

sound your praises to the Lord.

Let the hills rejoice together,

let the rivers clap their hands,

for with righteousness and justice

he will come to judge the earth.

After Psalm 98, Michael Baughen (born 1930)

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.

Apostles' Creed

player

The Lord's my Shepherd, I'll not want.

He makes me lie in pastures green.

He leads me by the still, still waters,

his goodness restores my soul.

And I will trust in you alone.
And I will trust in you alone,
for your endless mercy follows me,
your goodness will lead me home.

He guides my ways in righteousness,
and he anoints my head with oil,
and my cup, it overflows with joy,
I feast on his pure delights.

And though I walk the darkest path,
I will not fear the evil one,
for you are with me, and your rod and staff
are the comfort I need to know.

Reading: Psalm 90

player

1 Lord, you have been our dwelling-place

    throughout all generations.

2 Before the mountains were born

    or you brought forth the whole world,

    from everlasting to everlasting you are God.

3 You turn people back to dust,

    saying, ‘Return to dust, you mortals.’

4 A thousand years in your sight

    are like a day that has just gone by,

    or like a watch in the night.

5 Yet you sweep people away in the sleep of death –

    they are like the new grass of the morning:

6 In the morning it springs up new,

    but by evening it is dry and withered.

7 We are consumed by your anger

    and terrified by your indignation.

8 You have set our iniquities before you,

    our secret sins in the light of your presence.

9 All our days pass away under your wrath;

    we finish our years with a moan.

10 Our days may come to seventy years,

    or eighty, if our strength endures;

yet the best of them are but trouble and sorrow,

    for they quickly pass, and we fly away.

11 If only we knew the power of your anger!

    Your wrath is as great as the fear that is your due.

12 Teach us to number our days,

    that we may gain a heart of wisdom.

13 Relent, Lord! How long will it be?

    Have compassion on your servants.

14 Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love,

    that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.

15 Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us,

    for as many years as we have seen trouble.

16 May your deeds be shown to your servants,

    your splendour to their children.

17 May the favour of the Lord our God rest on us;

    establish the work of our hands for us –

    yes, establish the work of our hands.  (NIV)

Sermon

player

All my hope on God is founded,

all my trust he shall renew;

he, my guide through changing order,

only good and only true:

God unknown,

he alone,

calls my heart to be his own.

Human pride and earthly glory,
sword and crown betray his trust;
what with care and toil we fashion,
tower and temple, fall to dust;
but God's power
hour by hour
is my temple and my tower.

God's great goodness lasts for ever,
deep his wisdom, passing thought;
splendour, light and life attend him,
beauty springing out of nought;
evermore
from his store
countless stars rise and adore.

Day by day the almighty Giver

grants to us his gifts of love;

in his will our souls find pleasure,

leading to our home above:

love shall stand

at his hand,

joy shall wait on his command.

Still from man to God eternal

sacrifice of praise be done;

high above all praises praising

for his gift of Christ his Son:

hear Christ's call,

one and all-

those who follow shall not fall.

Robert Bridges 1844-1930

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

God is working his purpose out as year succeeds to year,

God is working his purpose out, and the time is drawing near;

nearer and nearer draws the time, the time that shall surely be,

when the earth shall be filled with the glory of God as the waters cover the sea.

From utmost east to utmost west wheree'er man's foot hath trod,

by the mouth of many messengers goes forth the voice of God,

'Give ear to me, ye continents, ye isles, give ear to me,

that the earth may be filled with the glory of God as the waters cover the sea.'

March we forth in the strength of God with the banner of Christ unfurled,

That the light of the glorious gospel of truth may shine throughout the world.

Fight we the fight with sorrow and sin, to set their captives free,

that the earth may be filled with the glory of God as the waters cover the sea.

All we can do is nothing worth unless God blesses the deed;

vainly we hope for the harvest-time till God gives life to the seed;

yet nearer and nearer draws the time, the time that shall surely be,

when the earth shall be filled with the glory of God as the waters cover the sea.

Arthur C Ainger (1841-1919)



May the peace of God, which passes all understanding, keep our hearts and minds in the knowledge and love of God, and of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord; and the blessing of God almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, be among us and remain with us always.  Amen.


Go in peace to love and serve the Lord

In the name of Christ. Amen.

Theme: God loved us by sending his Son to die for us (1 John 4:10)

player

It is good to praise the LORD and make music to your name, O Most High,
to proclaim your love in the morning and your faithfulness at night.

Psalm 92:1-2, NIV

player

Love divine, all loves excelling,
Joy of heaven to earth come down,
Fix in us thy humble dwelling,
All thy faithful mercies crown.
Jesu, thou art all compassion
Pure, unbounded love thou art;
Visit us with thy salvation,
Enter every trembling heart.

Breathe, O breathe thy loving Spirit
Into every troubled breast,
Let us all in thee inherit,
Let us find thy promised rest;
Take away the love of sinning,
Alpha and Omega be,
End of faith, as its beginning,
Set our hearts at liberty.

Come, almighty to deliver,
Let us all thy grace receive;
Suddenly return, and never,
Never more thy temples leave.
Thee we would be always blessing,
Serve thee as thy hosts above,
Pray, and praise thee, without ceasing,
Glory in thy perfect love.

Finish then thy new creation,
Pure and spotless let us be;
Let us see thy great salvation,
Perfectly restored in thee:
Changed from glory into glory,
Till in heaven we take our place,
Till we cast our crowns before thee,
Lost in wonder, love, and praise!

Charles Wesley (1707-1788)

Confession

Most merciful God, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, we confess that we have sinned in thought, word and deed. We have not loved you with our whole heart. We have not loved our neighbours as ourselves. In your mercy forgive what we have been, help us to amend what we are, and direct what we shall be; that we may do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with you, our God. Amen.

Reading: 1 John 4:7-11

player

Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: he sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.  (NIV)

player

Oh how good it is

When the family of God

Dwells together in spirit

In faith and unity.

Where the bonds of peace,

Of acceptance and love

Are the fruit of His presence

Here among us.

So with one voice we’ll sing to the Lord

And with one heart we’ll live out His word

Till the whole earth sees

The Redeemer has come

For He dwells in the presence of His people.

Oh how good it is

On this journey we share

To rejoice with the happy

And weep with those who mourn.

For the weak find strength

The afflicted find grace

When we offer the blessing

Of belonging.

Oh how good it is

To embrace His command

To prefer one another

Forgive as He forgives.

When we live as one

We all share in the love

Of the Son with the Father

And the Spirit.

Prepare our hearts, O God

Help us to receive

Break the hard and stony ground

Help our unbelief

Plant Your Word down deep in us

Cause it to bear fruit

Open up our ears to hear

Lead us in Your truth

Show us Christ, show us Christ

O God, reveal Your glory

Through the preaching of Your Word

Until every heart confesses Christ is Lord

Your Word is living light

Upon our darkened eyes

Guards us through temptations

Makes the simple wise

Your Word is food for famished ones

Freedom for the slave

Riches for the needy soul

Come speak to us today

Where else can we go, Lord

Where else can we go

You have the words of eternal life [repeat x4]

Reading: John 11v45-57

player
45 Therefore many of the Jews who had come to visit Mary, and had seen what Jesus did, believed in him. 46 But some of them went to the Pharisees and told them what Jesus had done. 47 Then the chief priests and the Pharisees called a meeting of the Sanhedrin.
‘What are we accomplishing?’ they asked. ‘Here is this man performing many signs. 48 If we let him go on like this, everyone will believe in him, and then the Romans will come and take away both our temple and our nation.’
49 Then one of them, named Caiaphas, who was high priest that year, spoke up, ‘You know nothing at all! 50 You do not realise that it is better for you that one man die for the people than that the whole nation perish.’
51 He did not say this on his own, but as high priest that year he prophesied that Jesus would die for the Jewish nation, 52 and not only for that nation but also for the scattered children of God, to bring them together and make them one. 53 So from that day on they plotted to take his life.
54 Therefore Jesus no longer moved about publicly among the people of Judea. Instead he withdrew to a region near the wilderness, to a village called Ephraim, where he stayed with his disciples.
55 When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, many went up from the country to Jerusalem for their ceremonial cleansing before the Passover. 56 They kept looking for Jesus, and as they stood in the temple courts they asked one another, ‘What do you think? Isn’t he coming to the festival at all?’ 57 But the chief priests and the Pharisees had given orders that anyone who found out where Jesus was should report it so that they might arrest him.  (NIV)

Jesus Christ, I think upon your sacrifice;

you became nothing, poured out to death.

Many times I've wondered at your gift of life

and I'm in that place once again,

I'm in that place once again.

And once again I look upon

the cross where you died.

I'm humbled by your mercy

and I'm broken inside.

Once again I thank you,

once again I pour out my life.

Now you are exalted to the highest place,

King of the heavens, where one day I'll bow.

But for now I marvel at this saving grace

and I'm full of praise once again,

I'm full of praise once again.

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.

'Tis finished! The Messiah dies;

Cut off for sins, but not His own;

Accomplished is the sacrifice,

The great redeeming work is done.

'Tis finished! all the debt is paid,

Justice divine is satisfied;

The grand and full atonement made;

God for a guilty world hath died.

The veil is rent in Christ alone;

The living way to heaven is seen;

The middle wall is broken down,

And all mankind may enter in.

The types and figures are fulfilled,

Exacted is the legal pain;

The precious promises are sealed;

The spotless Lamb of God is slain.

The reign of sin and death is o'er

And all may live from sin set free;

Satan hath lost his mortal power;

'Tis swallowed up in victory.

Saved from the legal curse I am,

My Saviour hangs on yonder tree:

See there the meek, expiring Lamb!

'Tis finished! He expires for me.

Accepted in the Well-beloved,

And clothed in righteousness divine,

I see the bar to heaven removed.

And all Thy merits, Lord, are mine.

Death, hell, and sin are now subdued;

All grace is now to sinners given:

And lo, I plead th' atoning blood,

And in Thy right I claim Thy heaven.

Charles Wesley (1707–1788)


May the God of hope fill us with all joy and peace in believing, through the power of the Holy Spirit; and the blessing of God almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, be among you and remain with you always.  Amen.
c.f. Romans 15.13

Go in peace to love and serve the Lord

In the name of Christ. Amen.
