Call to Worship

CH4 110
Glory be to God the Father,
Glory be to God the Son,
Glory be to God the Spirit,
Great Jehovah three in One.
Singing glory, glory.
Glory while eternal ages run.

Glory be to Him who loved us,
Washed us from each spot and stain.
Glory be to Him who bought us,
Made us kings with Him to reign.
Singing glory, glory.
Glory to the Lamb who once was slain.

Glory to the King of Angels,
Glory to the Church’s King.
Glory to the King of nations,
Heaven and earth your praises bring.
Singing glory, glory.
Glory to the King of Nations bring

Glory blessing praise eternal,
Thus the choir of angels sings.
Honour riches power dominion,
Thus its praise creation brings.
Singing glory, glory.
Glory, glory to the King of Kin

Prayer of Approach & Confession

Ch4 356
Meekness and majesty, manhood and deity,
In perfect harmony, the man who is God.
Lord of eternity, dwells in humanity,
Kneels in humility, and washes our feet.
Refrain-O what a mystery,-meekness and majesty.
Bow down and worship, for this is your God,
This is your God!
Father’s pure radiance, perfect in innocence,
Yet learns obedience to death on a cross.
Suffering to give us life, conquering through sacrifice,
And, as they crucify, prays: ‘Father forgive.’ – Refrain
Wisdom unsearchable, God the invisible,
Love indestructible in frailty appears.
Lord of infinity, stooping so tenderly,
Lifts our humanity to the heights of His throne. – Refrain

Luke Ch2: 41-52 Joan Harvey
Hebrews Ch5: 1-10 Revd David Doyle

CH4 354
O love, how deep, how broad, how high,
surpassing thought and fantasy,
that God, the Son of God, should take
our mortal form for mortals’ sake!

For us baptized, for us he bore
his holy fast and hungered sore,
for us temptation sharp he knew;
for us the tempter overthrew.

For us he prayed; for us he taught;
for us the lost with love he sought;
by words and signs and actions, he
brought health and hope to set us free..

For us to wicked men betrayed,
scourged, mocked, in crown of thorns arrayed,
he bore the shameful cross and death,
for us gave up his dying breath.

For us he rose from death again;
for us he went on high to reign;
for us he sent his Spirit here,
to guide, to strengthen, and to cheer.

To him whose boundless love has won
Salvation for us through his son:
To God the Father, glory be
Both now and through eternity

“Learning Obedience”

CH4 402
“Take up your cross,” the Saviour said,
“If thou would My disciple be;
Deny thyself, the world forsake,
And humbly follow after Me.”

Take up your cross, let not its weight
Fill thy weak spirit with alarm;
His strength shall bear your spirit up,
And brace your heart and nerve your arm.

Take up your cross, nor heed the shame,
Nor let thy foolish pride rebel;
Thy Lord refused not even to die,
Upon a cross on Calvary’s hill.

Take up your cross then in His strength,
And calmly every deluge brave,
It guide thee to a better home,
It points to glory o’er the grave.

Take up your cross and follow Christ,
Nor think till death to lay it down;
For only those who bear the cross
May hope to wear the glorious crown
Offering and Prayer of Dedication
Prayer for Others

CH4 468
Son of God, eternal Saviour,
Source of life and truth and grace,
Son of Man, whose birth incarnate
hallows all our human race,
Great High Priest, who, throned in glory,
for your own will ever plead,
fill us with thy love and pity,
heal our wrongs and help our need.

Lord, as you have lived for others
so may we for others live;
freely have thy gifts been granted,
freely may thy servants give.
Yours the gold and yours the silver,
Yours the wealth of sea and land,
we but stewards of thy bounty,
held in trust at your command.

Come, O Christ, and reign among us,
King of Love and Prince of Peace,
hush the storm of strife and passion,
bid its cruel discords cease;
Yoursthe prayer, and yours the purpose;
that your people should be one,
grant from heaven our hope’s fruition:
here on earth your will be done..

Although many restrictions have been lifted it is still prudent to follow the existing guidelines and advice.

Main points for us are
• Face coverings, covering both mouth and nose, must be worn at all times in the church buildings.
• A Lateral Flow Test is advised prior to attending services
• Face coverings may only be removed to read the Lesson, make announcements and deliver the Sermon. However they should be replaced to move from one area to another.

Let’s do all we can to protect each other by respecting the virus, being vigilant and holding each other in prayer.
