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, you’re 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 stilled 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 wake.

Now You stand before the Father interceding for Your own.
From each tribe and tongue and nation you are leading sinners home.


WELCOME  by Paul Jenkins



Give thanks to the Lord our God and King his love endures forever.
For He is good, he is above all things: his love endures forever.
Sing praise, sing praise, sing praise, sing praise.

With a mighty handand an outstretched arm: his love endures forever.
For the life that’s been reborn: his love endures forever.
Sing praise, sing praise, sing praise, sing praise.

Forever God is faithful; forever God is strong.
Forever God is with us, forever.(repeat)

From the rising to the setting sun: his love endures forever.
By the grace of God, we will carry on:his love endures forever.
Sing praise, sing praise, sing praise, sing praise.


for Elias & Jesse Walker

To the parents:
Do you acknowledge that Elias and Jesse are gifts of God’s love and grace to you, and do you wish to give thanks to God and ask for their blessing?

Nathan & Delphine: We do.

All: God our creator, we thank you for the precious gift of family life,
and for giving to Nathan and Delphine, the gift of Elias and Jesse.
As we pray for them we thank you that we’re known to you by name
and loved by you from all eternity.
We thank you for Jesus Christ, who died and rose again
to bring us eternal life. Amen.

As Jesus took children in his arms and blessed them, so we now ask God’s blessing on Elias and Jesse.
Heavenly Father, we praise you for the gift of these children; surround them with your blessing, that they may know your love, be protected from evil, and know your goodness all of their days. May they learn to love all that is true, grow in wisdom and strength, and above all, in due time, come to know and love the Lord Jesus Christ. In his name we pray. Amen.

It says in Deuteronomy: You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.

To the parents:
Do you trust in God’s promises in his Word, made to you and all who believe?

Nathan & Delphine: We do.

To the parents:
Will you live out the gospel in your home by bringing up Elias and Jesse in the training and instruction of the Lord, disciplining them and showing them grace, praying for them and teaching them to pray, and modeling for them a life lived for others in service of God and the gospel?

Nathan & Delphine: With the help of God, we will.

To the godparents:
Will you partner with Nathan and Delphine in their role as parents, encouraging them, holding them accountable, confronting their sin and praying for them? And will you commit to pray for Elias and Jesse, that he will grow to love Jesus and trust in him?

Godparents: With the help of God, we will.

To the supporting friends, family and congregation:
Will you do all that you can to help and support this family?

All: With the help of God, we will.


May God the Father give to Nathan and Delphine the grace to love and care for Elias and Jesse. May God give them wisdom, patience and faith, help them to provide for their needs and, by their example, reveal the love and truth that are in Jesus Christ.

The Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Lord look kindly on you and give you peace. And the blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, be among us and remain with us always. Amen.



When I fear my faith will fail, Christ will hold me fast;
When the tempter would prevail, He will hold me fast.
I could never keep my hold
Through life’s fearful path;
For my love is often cold; He must hold me fast.

He will hold me fast, He will hold me fast;
For my Saviour loves me so, He will hold me fast.

Those He saves are His delight, Christ will hold me fast;
Precious in His holy sight, He will hold me fast.
He’ll not let my soul be lost; His promises shall last;
Bought by Him at such a cost, He will hold me fast.

For my life He bled and died, Christ will hold me fast;
Justice has been satisfied; He will hold me fast.
Raised with Him to endless life, He will hold me fast
‘Till our faith is turned to sight
When He comes at last!


Our children and young people go out to their groups




PRAYERS led by Colin & Nina Sedgwick



My worth is not in what I own;
not in the strength of flesh and bone
But in the costly wounds of love at the cross.
My worth is not in skill or name;
in win or lose, in pride or shame.
But in the blood of Christ that flowed at the cross.

I rejoice in my Redeemer, greatest treasure,
wellspring of my soul.
I will trust in Him, no other;
my soul is satisfied in Him alone.

As summer flowers fade and die;
Fame, youth and beauty hurry by.
But life eternal calls to us at the cross.
I will not boast in wealth or might,
or human wisdom’s fleeting light
But I will boast in knowing Christ at the cross.

Two wonders here that I confess:
My worth and my unworthiness.
My value fixed my ransom paid at the cross.


BIBLE READING    read by Suze Fazekas

Matthew 22:41-23:12

41 Now while the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them a question, 42 saying, “What do you think about the Christ? Whose son is he?” They said to him, “The son of David.” 43 He said to them, “How is it then that David, in the Spirit, calls him Lord, saying,

     44 “‘The Lord said to my Lord,
     Sit at my right hand,
     until I put your enemies under your feet’?

45 If then David calls him Lord, how is he his son?” 46 And no one was able to answer him a word, nor from that day did anyone dare to ask him any more questions.

23 Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples, “The scribes and the Pharisees sit on Moses’ seat, so practise and observe whatever they tell you—but not what they do. For they preach, but do not practise. They tie up heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to move them with their finger. They do all their deeds to be seen by others. For they make their phylacteries broad and their fringes long, and they love the place of honour at feasts and the best seats in the synagogues and greetings in the market-places and being called rabbi by others. But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have one teacher, and you are all brothers. And call no man your father on earth, for you have one Father, who is in heaven. 10 Neither be called instructors, for you have one instructor, the Christ. 11 The greatest among you shall be your servant. 12 Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.


BIBLE TALK by Rich Adam



From heaven you came helpless babe
entered our world, your glory veiled;
not to be served but to serve,
and give Your life that we might live.

This is our God, the Servant King.
He calls us now to follow Him,
to bring our lives as a daily offering
of worship to the Servant King.

There in the garden of tears,
my heavy load he chose to bear.
His heart with sorrow was torn,
‘Yet not My will but Yours,’ he said.

Come see His hands and His feet,
the scars that speak of sacrifice.
Hands that flung stars into space
to cruel nails surrendered.

So let us learn how to serve,
and in our lives enthrone Him;
each other’s needs to prefer,
for it is Christ we’re serving.


Man of sorrows, Lamb of God,
by His own betrayed.
The sin of man and wrath of God
has been on Jesus laid.

Silent as He stood accused,
beaten, mocked, and scorned.
Bowing to the Father’s will,
He took a crown of thorns.

Oh, that rugged cross, my salvation,
where Your love poured out over me.
Now my soul cries out, “Hallelujah!
Praise and honour unto Thee.”

Sent of heaven, God’s own Son,
to purchase and redeem,
and reconcile the very ones
who nailed Him to that tree.

Oh, that rugged cross…

Now my debt is paid, it is paid in full
by the precious blood that my Jesus spilled.
Now the curse of sin has no hold on me.
Whom the Son sets free, oh is free indeed.

See the stone is rolled away,
behold the empty tomb.
Hallelujah, God be praised!
He’s risen from the grave!
